I had used the UPS store in Oregon for years for shipping and UPS returns but after moving to Alaska I will never use them again. The store in Meadow Lakes, Alaska is a miserable place to have a mailbox. I rented a mailbox a year ago. The 'owner' tried to charge me $3 a package when I picked up my Amazon packages because it cost her time for the employees to fetch my packages from the back room! This is what I pay for! I had to complain to UPS Store Corporate to get this to stop. I get a lot of packages but so do a lot of other people. The owner and her employees hate customers that make them sort packages. I had missing packages and snooty responses when I asked about them. Had to file multiple complaints with Amazon and the Post Office because UPS Store employees were tampering with my mail. High turn over of employees and the one that remains is totally stressed out and over worked. Have not seen the 'owner' since labor day. The one employee refused to renew my mailbox and the owner who was supposed to call me never did. Instead I got a hand written note on scratch paper saying they would not be renewing my mailbox. What a joke this place is, run by incompetent people with no business sense at all. I tried calling UPS Store corporate but never got thru on the phone. Sent them an email and all they did was email the store owner to please get in touch with me. Store owner never did. I wound up getting a mailbox at the Main Post office where the price for a year is the same as 6 months with the UPS store. No hassles with USPS. UPS Store Corporate does nothing for customers who are treated badly by their incompetent Store 'owners'. The owners of this store in Meadow Lakes are both elderly and in poor health so I cannot envision this scenario will survive the holidays.


These Twins are rude, arrogant actually hung up on me during an exploratory call. I would not sell them a house if they were the last people on earth who would buy it. Immature, rude, have no clue about what they are doing. In speaking to one of them I felt like I was talking to a 14 year old boy. Forget this company and find a real Realtor. With Ethics.


Dr Smith is a very nice man, and for the most part his skill with tooth issues is excellent. BUT. His assistant, Shalona, pretty much orders him around and controls what goes on in there. This is strange and made me uncomfortable. The billing/office staff girls are things nightmares are made of. Oddly, all the females that work there are blondes. They all go on education weekends together. The relationship between the Dentist and his staff is just weird.


This guy is a fast talker, but after speaking with him a couple of times I wouldn't trust him any farther than I could throw him and that would not be far. He is full of himself, full of hot air, poor business ethics, and disappears without a trace. Don't pay him anything or you will never get what you paid for and he will be 'poof', gone!


I have had Safeco Auto and Home Insurance for 20 years. Yesterday I received a notice by mail from Safeco saying they were going to put two individuals on my policies unless I told them not to! I am single and live alone. I had no idea who these two people are.

I called Safeco and got a call center. A young woman told me that they investigated me and found two people living with me. NO WAY. I have been in my home in Alaska for almost a year and have a lease. I am the only one on the lease. No one lives here. I told this woman to take those people off my policy immediately. She made up some lame excuse.

My privacy has been invaded and Safeco hires college students to man call centers. They hack into people's accounts.

I sent them their paperwork back with a big NO on it. I sent them an email expressing my displeasure. I also filed a BBB complaint on Safeco.

I am going to switch companies after 20 years because of this.


This company is scamming their long term customers. More than doubled their transaction fees. Shame on you. We have other choices, like credit cards, direct deposit. Going to stop using Pay Pal very very soon.


This service is seriously overpriced! Owner targets wealthy men ( won't have anything to do with women) that are over the age of 80, to write their 'memoirs' for $150,000.00! Owner doesn't ever write the memoirs himself, hires it out and pockets the difference. Scam City, stay away.


Do not use this company! They will not honor your contract. They do not pick up your garbage weekly and the office woman laughs and sneers at people who call to complain. Everyone in their service area has had trouble with them Read the Google Reviews. They will not stay in business because they don't do what they agree to do. Have more customers than they can service. The owner should be ashamed of himself. Horrible trash service in Wasilla, Alaska. We plan to use the other company or haul it ourselves. We plan to file a chargeback on payment made for upcoming three months for breach of contract on their part.


This company looks ok on line but don't deal with the CEO/Founder. This woman is rude, unstable and will not tell you the truth. If you have any product or customer service issues at all and complain, she will either ignore you or launch off on a tirade about how right she is and how wrong you are. Even if you use paypal for payments and file a claim it will be a fight. Buy from a reputable retailer like Cabela's or similar. Man Gear Alaska has zero customer service training or skills.


Their products and processes are inferior, do not work as promised. Immature management that refuses to address the issues. No customer service at all. Find another company to do business with.


Do not enter into a contract with this company, they will not honor it. Owner is ok but has a crew of catty, unprofessional women that he shifts you over to work with, ask inappropriate questions. The whole set up is questionable. If you want to recruit new agents do it yourself.


This company is so disorganized I cannot recommend buying from them or working for them. Owner is in California but his staff is all in India and have poor comprehension of what it takes to do business in the USA.


Stay away from this place. Their primary concern is getting more money out of you and your insurance company. They could care less if you get well. Front desk girl is rude and when you call in immediately tells you that you will be paying a lot, probably because it goes in her pocket. Not once do they ask how you are feeling. Not very reassuring if you want help getting well. If you don't believe this go ahead, go in and don't be surprised if you get a high bill!


This company does not require face masks to be worn by employees despite their claim of being 'safe'. I will never eat at another Subway again. Careless, dirty and dangerous these days
