or short-hours tooMay 9, 2009 at 6:38 pm #1198898ellieParticipant

Jobcentre Plus – Working Age Benefits Jobseeker’s Allowance
In my experance of benefits it will take forever to set up, untill you are litterally telling them you will be living on the streat. Then there tell you they have a terrible backlog and theres nothing they can do. It will go on like this for a couple of months till youv run up so much debit on cards etc that you have wrecked your live just in order to be able to eat.

i’ve had a little look on the internet and it looks like you definately try to avoid saying you quit if possible!May 11, 2009 at 9:32 am #1198895DaftFaderParticipant
if you quit i think it’s a maximum of 6 months you will have to wait .. after that they don’t ask questions about previous employmentMay 11, 2009 at 5:58 pm #1198888globalloonParticipant

yeah, if you quit then i’m not sure you can for 6 months. maybe if you had good reason, i.e unsuitable working conditions etc. though i recon you could get away with lying about it, just ay you were fired, or couldn’t do the hours for whatever reason. then you can backclaim from the day you rang them.May 12, 2009 at 7:19 pm #1198890fruitisbad;326525 wrote:yeah, if you quit then i’m not sure you can for 6 months. maybe if you had good reason, i.e unsuitable working conditions etc. though i recon you could get away with lying about it, just ay you were fired, or couldn’t do the hours for whatever reason. then you can backclaim from the day you rang them.
i had a good reason, abuse from management towards staff, undercut hours, harrasment, we basically all said fuck this, i waited around to stick up for the people i worked with but now we’ve all had enoughMay 12, 2009 at 8:12 pm #1198893
Is it really worth signing on though mate? Is there no jobs about?May 12, 2009 at 8:19 pm #1198897p0lyParticipant
hahaha you dont need to look for jobs on jobseekers!!!May 12, 2009 at 8:29 pm #1198891DJCliffy;326546 wrote:Is it really worth signing on though mate? Is there no jobs about?
well i’m leaving in september so it would just be a temporary anytime job… the only problem is i’m competing with shitloads of college/uni people looking for summer jobs too, the key areas are pubs etc. but all the pubs are shutting one by one
i have experience of working full time for a couple of years so one up there, but as i’m not in full-time education if there arent any jobs i can still sign on so at least it’s a failsafe.May 12, 2009 at 8:30 pm #1198894
I was on jobseekers a while back. it’s very easy to get complacent and just stay on it. It’s not really worth it though Boothy. If you can’t get a job then fair enough but my advice is to steer clear.
EDIT – just seen your post mate. If thats the case go for it! 🙂
