- It is not possible to make an appointment at the San Marcos office. I asked to make an appointment, and the woman on the phone spoke for about ten minutes without a break - she told me the times the office was open, what documents to bring for each kind of application, etc - all the information on this page already - before finally saying: 'We don't offer appointments, but you are welcome to stop by the office during opening hours.' Calling is a waste of time.
- It would be really herlpful if I could call a local number to make an office appointment. I have been on hold fr\or almost an hour to just make an appointment at my local office via the main number used for the whold nation! I can't beleive it! This is more than awful customer service to a citizen of the US! I am appalled!
- Workers are not happy here, they must be underpaid. Lady in window 1 very annoyed and upset with my questions. Before she helped the next customer she was scrolling thru her phone. While the line was 20 people long. Horrible customer service! Dont know her name but she is a heavy set, bleached short hair, green eyes. Nasty lady.
- When we got to the window, the lady commented on how long we had waited. She asked why we hadn't made an appointment instead of waiting several hours? We had been told on our prior, and initial, visit that appointments could not be made. She said this was incorrect - she said next time we should call the 800 number next time to make an appointment. I called and guess what? No appointments. Also, each time we have been there, we have been given a different amount for my monthly Social Security. No one could explain why the amounts I had been told by someone else were incorrect. I understand that people at this office work very hard but it should not be too much to expect them to have the same information. So far, I have been given a different amount from three different people at this office, as well as four different amounts on the last four letters I have received from Social Security. My husband and I have no idea at this point what the amount of my next check will be. Our government should be able to provide better service than this.
