I ordered something online and it was sent to my old address, even though the mailing address on that site was my current address. The tracking number told me "package forwarded to receivers address that is on file with the post Barnegat, NJ" . So after 2 days of not recieving it I called this post office. I have never talked to someone ruder in my life. I told him what the tracking number said and simply asked if it was at the post office or something. He started getting attitude and defensive(I wasn't being mean was literally just asking a question) told me "well maybe you should have used the correct address". Normally one bad apple wouldn't bother me, but TWICE I have ordered debit cards from my bank that never came in. Every time I called the bank they said it's always delivered within the 7 business days and they would have to cancel my never delivered card and request another new one. The second time they were behind confused and suggested I send it to a different address with a different post office!
Only been there twice since moving to town and the lady I dealt with both times has already "threatened" me. I ship ecommerce orders and often times I print my labels and prepare my packages at night. She told me she will make a "one time exception" but will not accept any of my shipments, which are all prepaid Priority I may add, in the future. REALLY?!? We'll see about that....
A warm and much appreciated thank you go to the employees at the Barnegat post office. As I was waiting in line to mail my Christmas cards at the last minute as usual I appreciated hearing the clerks say Merry Christmas to everyone as their transaction was complete. This past week while shopping the area large stores I was not once wished a Merry Christmas and when I wished the cashiers and/or clerks a Merry Christmas few replied Merry Christmas and others just looked dumbfounded or afraid to reply. I'm hopeful this isn't the case all over but this was my unfortunate experience. Thank you again and Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a Happy and Healthy New Year. Eric Newman.
DO NOT GO TO THIS POST OFFICE! I have a small business in which I ship product once in a while. I send a small package that I told the clerk I wanted shipped the cheapest way. She told me priority mail with insurance was the cheapest for 5.99. I later found out media mail would have cost 2.99. It is very sad you cannot trust what people say. This women should not be serving the public.
I never go to the Barnegat post office. They have either lost or stolen several packages on me and others I am aware of. I had at lease 10 insurance claims of lost packages sent from this place that never reached the main hub. The place is full of druggies and low life employees. NEVER got to this post office. I drive 15 mile to the next post office just to avoid this place. I mail 10 to 20 packages a week.
