"Feel free to ignore the 'no food and drink' sign since people bring drinks in. The building opens at 8am, the office itself opens at 9am. Not sure which is worse: Waiting to deal with government or having to listen to the people in the waiting room. It's a federal government office opened three hours a day; it sucks."

"Although I can relate to the frustrations of those giving the Port Angeles Social Security Office poor ratings for short office hours, long wait times and inadequate staff and seating, I feel it unfairly diminishes the fantastic people that are there doing very difficult jobs.\nI've been in twice without an appointment and yes, seating is limited, and yes, I waited, but not an exceptional amount of time (30-40 minutes). Perhaps making an appointment would save time, I don't know. I do know the individuals behind the counters are doing their best to help us, and as quickly and efficiently as possible. (They made a follow up call promptly at a predetermined time and were a pleasure to speak with.) That said, they have to follow the 'rules', and there are a lot of rules. \nIn my opinion if there is cause for poor ratings, it's on our government as a whole... the bureaucracy, the cutbacks, the shutdowns, etc. I could go on but won't.\nSo in conclusion I want to thank Linda M. and John H. for making my initial visits to said office a good experience and not the nightmare I thought it might be, the nightmare some others must have had. To those I wish better luck and ask that they recognize the efforts of the staff, who through no fault of their own, are limited by forces beyond their control. Thank you and may the new year hold better tomorrows for us all."

"I found the staff to be very helpful and informative."

"Too short of hours, not enough seats in the main lobby where you are expected to wait in line for at least an hour before getting into the office. Some of us have difficulty with standing for that long. Also there is not enough staff to handle everyone who happens to be waiting all the way up to closing and don't even get seen, so you then have come back the next day and hope you get to talk to someone."

"Long wait and the hours are short. Coming from sequim it is a pain. Not enough seating so for me standing is very painful for that long!!"
