  1. Yea this office is atrocious. They purposely take forever to get you in and out so to make your experience as painful as possible in hope that you never return again, so they don’t have to do any work. It can take an entire day to get a CAC card and they follow rules by the book. For example, you cannot use a recently expired drivers license as a form of ID. Something that should take no more than 30 minutes will take hours at this office. Really don’t have too many choices in this vincinity.

  2. The Best in the west. Staff are very professional and efficient. If you don't have an appointment this the best place for walk-in. The line is probably the shortest in all ID card center in San Diego area and the staff are hard worker and moving the line as past as they could. I appreciate your customer service. BZ.

  3. This office is the fastest to get through when on a walk in basis. The gentlemen are very helpful, but the one female in the office is rude and dismissive.

  4. The lady I spoke with on 20180522 was insanely rude to me and even asked me "if I was listening to anything she said", absolutely rude and disrespectful!!! I would avoid going to this place!

  5. Slow moving staff at ID office. Numerous employees there but none care to try to get IDs done quickly so members can get to work or families can be in and out. No accountability for lost ID cards turned in to them by security force. This group of workers live up to stereotype given to government civilian workers. Has to be the worst run office on base.
