“one shining light in a sea of shocking service”

Written on: 22/09/2014 by shannonshan1234 (1 review written)

I have been ringing jobcentre several times per week for the last couple of months because i am single and pregnant and needed help. I was spoken to rudely by the majority and told there was nothing they could do. I was given numbers for different offices and benefits as they are incapable of knowing about more that one benefit per office. the websites are confusing and have way too many redirecting links. Quite frankly, i was confused, and felt desperate and alone. "nothing we can do until… Read Full Review

“Feel terrible”

Written on: 22/08/2014 by SavannaGreen246 (1 review written)

After 6 years I lost a job. So i signed on job center, not happy about that but I believed i can find a job soon anyway. After 4 months I was told to sign off as the adviser does not believe i have a chance to find a job. Found a job after 5 months, having last 20 pounds to survive until my first salary which is in a month. Fortunately, I have friends who helped me in the bad time... Job center took my self confidence away, never felt so exposed and useless before...They only support people… Read Full Review

“Job Centre Kirkintilloch”

Written on: 22/07/2014 by AshleySandoval94 (1 review written)

I sign on and off in the Kirkintilloch Job Centre. You walk into the place and your welcomed by one of the staff members. When you hand your book in and say I'am signing on at 11.30am for example. If you are late by 1 minute, you are looked down to by an angry member of staff. And if you are 5 minutes early. The staff give you another angry tone saying you are too early! You can't win with these people. You are treated VERY badly. And are looked down on. It is a very unpleasant place and i… Read Full Review

Hello On the 05/06/2014 I rang job seekers plus to make a claim I explained I am currently pregnant and homeless with no fixed address and am seeking help with housing. I have worked most of my life but this year got into very bad trouble with this pregnancy and had to leave my partner due to a bad relationship. I was booked the following Monday to see the adviser and was told I could use the Sutton job centre as a temp address to sign on. I got there on the Monday and was seen by a lady on… Read Full Review

Untrained bunch of idiots who have no idea what they are doing at all. they look down on you like you like dirt. All they are, are jumped up admin people, ok, some are pleasant enough, but my god, that advisor has no idea what she is doing at all, im serious, she talks to you like dirt on the end of your shoe, doesn't know what she is doing. I would not recommend her at all, better off working. Big complaint going in about her though to the head of DWP… Read Full Review

“Worse than Hitler”

Written on: 14/04/2014 by vvMcKnight67 (1 review written)

It's a place full of mindless, braindead employees, who are no help whatsoever, unless of course you want to work at a call center or be thrown into some UNPAID work experience. They're about as helpful and useful as a monkey throwing it's own poop at a wall. the place, aswell as it's staff are a complete joke. A funeral is a happier place to go to than the jobcenter. If anybody is even considering wasting their time with this, don't bother. You get absolutely nothing from it but the feeling of… Read Full Review

You turn up on time or early, they sit there having a conversations with other members of staff then when they have finished the socialising they finally call you over. When talking to you they just talk down to you as if they are better than you. I understand that they see a lot of people that do not actually want work but for the people who actually do want work and spend most of their days applying for job they do not want to be spoke to like they are just a number or a waste of time.

Would be great if the truth came out about the great big benefits lie and jobless total. Anway despite having a sign on time of 11.30 I was kept waiting for half an hour they then proceeded to call everyone that had arrived after myself before me and those that were arriving were called out infront of me as .After pointing this out I was eventually spoken to by "an advisor"( if that's what you call them . asked to sign a piece of paper wrongly told I had to sign a declaration of pay form( I… Read Full Review

“If you want to feel like a piece of dirt on a shoe, go...”

Written on: 06/03/2014

Recently had to sign on again for the second time in a year after the job they made me go for was only a temporary contract when I specified that I wanted a permanent contract. They all look down their nose at you and treat you as if you are the lowest of the low. You can arrive on time that doesn't matter but they can obviously make you wait for 30 mins+ and when they do finally see you they are rude pushy and condescending. I recently applied for a job that asked me to go on training as… Read Full Review

Looking to become an Avon rep or door-to-door catalogue dropper? This is the very site for you. I doubt there are any serious jobs ever advertised on this site. Click on a link that contains the word "sales" and you are instantly presented with thousands of jobs all identical with slightly different titles. Waste of time even bothering with that site… Read Full Review

“The most direspectul staff I have ever met!”

Written on: 23/01/2014

I have called them to because I wanted to apply for a National insurance number, since it is required by my employer and because I am not a UK citizen. The lady I had on the phone was always saying that she couldn't understand me and was quite rude, although I am used to have conversation in english on the phone. She asked me to hold the line until she could find an interpretor, and finaly she hanged up. I called back and this time, a man answered. He took all my details ( it seems that he was… Read Full Review

I agree entirely! I, like you have applied for jobs on similar sites and not heard from
any of them. It has been proven that a large number of these so-called vacancies
don't even exist! It's all part of EU/government big brother that want to know all they can
about people, so they can enter the information on a data-base.
This country is gradually turning into a "dictatorship"

Written on: 10/01/2014

The Direct.Gov website is useless! They make you register and say you have to use it or your benefits stop. would be nice if the website ACTUALLY worked. Each time I click an action it tells me "service unavailable".What am I supposed to do? Don't complain in your local job centre though because they say it works perfectly! It doesn't, it sucks. I've just spent 2 hours trying to apply for a single job!!!! Time that could have been spent applying for a job on a reputable jobsite not this piece… Read Full Review

SEEMS LIKE THEIR MAIN PRIORITY IS TO MAKE CLAIMING IS DIFFICULT AS POSSIBLE. THIS IS POSSIBLY BECAUSE THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE THAT WORK IN THIS AREA WERE UNEMPLOYED AND FORCED INTO TAKING THE POSITION. AS FOR THE DIRECT GOV JOBSITE-WHAT A JOKE. LOGGING IN IS NEXT TO IMPOSSIBLE AND THE LENGTH OF THE ID GIVEN TO YOU WHEN REPORTING THE PROBLEM IS NOT THE REQUIRED AMMOUNT OF FIGURES IN THE FIRST PLACE.
