“uncaring depressive and obtuse ”

Written on: 22/09/2016 by Dakota1959 (1 review written)

Very reluctantly I had to make a claim for Job seekers. My last experience at the Job Centre had me running to the G P. after a confrontation with a so called Civil Servant. As the government have moved the goal posts for pension age (60) I am living without income. I was effected by the bedroom Tax, amassed rent arrears and now have a bailiff appointment to evict me. If that's enough to stress me. Also forced to claim Job Seeker allowance as advised by my local Council so they can retrieve… Read Full Review

“Stigmatised”

Written on: 21/06/2016

Having worked within the hospitality industry at management level for many years since my teens and through university, I found myself unemployed. I had heard some terrible stories about signing on from friends but thought it would be prudent to do until I found a job. The problems started with the application. It took almost six weeks to process me. Supposedly they are meant to back-date your payments. This did not happen. Now for the Job Centre itself. Never have I experienced such a… Read Full Review

“Don't bother ringing Job Centre Plus!”

Written on: 24/04/2016

I rang Job Centre Plus regarding my employment and support allowance and I waited.............and I waited..............and I waited.............and I waited............and I waited................then I decided to pull the plug and terminated the call after waiting for 30 minutes,so as to reduce my excessive phone bill, with my query unanswered. This department is obviously not fit for purpose and the only thing it appears to be efficient at,is causing extremely excessive phone charges to… Read Full Review

“Jobcentre Openshaw”

Written on: 29/03/2016 by ueLopez392 (1 review written)

I would like to thank the Jobcentre at Openshaw Manchester for all the help and advice i recieved after being made redundant. Roseanna was a lovely lady, doing such a thankless job and dealing with sometimes rude and upset members of the public. Roseanna helped make my experience a positive one, she was always very friendly and patient and she obviously really cares about the people she helps, she is a real credit to the Jobcentre, i would once again like to thank her for all the help and… Read Full Review

“Ilkeston Job Centre Plus”

Written on: 24/11/2015

The most terrible public service UK has to offer to citizens. Employees full of apathy and indifference towards people in need of finding a job. Telephones are never picked up even if you try daily for weeks. I wonder why the state gives taxpayers' money to the most lazy people to work there. Waste of money and time… Read Full Review

“Mansfield, Nottinghamshire job centre is a joke”

Written on: 14/11/2015

The job centre in Mansfield does not help me at all finding work every meeting I have with them instead of perhaps doing constructive job searching with me all they do is try to palm me off to different companies with letters threatening that if I don't do this or that I will get sanctioned and lose my benefits. That is all they are good for really as for ever helping me finding work they fail ridiculously. The way they treat you with these threats makes you feel like you are being punished for… Read Full Review

“Oh~ The inhumanity!”

Written on: 30/10/2015 by ZenderRailen (2 reviews written)

As in the title, the job center is exactly that. Inhuman. The most difficult thing infact is that... their frontline IS human by comparison. What this means is fairly simple, in countless situations the frontline have to deal with the frustrations and complaints of the individuals that are bieng wronged every day, and of course those who have been geniunely sanctioned. Unfortunately, i'd like to say the ones bieng wronged are uncommon, but as the reviews have proven here, that isnt purely not… Read Full Review

Zenderrailen's Response to depresseddad1990's Review

Written on: 30/10/2015

Unreal, im just about to make a review based off my expereance focusing on the inhuman treatment, specifically putting it into perspective how inhuman it is.

I've had a good few expereances of sanctions and allsorts over the most nonsensical things, including two mandatory work placements overlapping. As i tried to phone and have them amend the issue, i literally.

Got told to speak to the prime minister. oh, this is after getting hung up on once.

“Need money - leave dignity at the door.”

Written on: 17/07/2015 by 236Meredith (1 review written)

I unfortunately joined the JCP after leaving college. I went to the interview and met my advisor - if that's what they're called - and went home feeling worse than when I woke up. They wanted me to log in everyday to the website, to join job sites, to phone companies and so on. I had no access to internet and travelling to the JC everyday was going to cost more than they were giving me. After maybe five months my advisor retired and I was handed off to someone else. Turns out everything I had… Read Full Review

“What a joke”

Written on: 17/05/2015 by awGarcia240 (1 review written)

My partner did all her own work finding a job without any help from the job centre she did well in the interview & got the job on the condition that she can provide a full 5yr work history with no gaps so she managed to get her working history all she needed was proof of the dates she was on job seekers the next day we went to the job centre asking for the information they said it was archived so we would have to request it & gave us a number we rang the number & was then told we had to put the… Read Full Review

“Need to change the name”

Written on: 11/03/2015

I've said before that the job centre should change the name to Benefits centre. The job centre used to be a place to look for and apply for jobs, these days you'll be escorted out by a security guard if you don't have an appointment. An appointment which usually consists of threats to lose benefits if you dont apply for more jobs. This happened to me the other day and i left the "advisor" stumped when i said i don't care about the benefits i come to the job centre for help in finding work. The… Read Full Review

“WASTE OF TIME - LAUGHING STOCK”

Written on: 19/02/2015 by ccRankin142 (1 review written)

As a company we advertised a vacancy for a 'Receptionist and general office assistant' - received 84 applications - some bricklayers looking for a change of career - ha ha - we narrowed these applicants down to 8 for interviews - 2 turned up - two cancelled and four no shows. It is blatantly obvious that people only apply as it is part of what they need to do to continue receiving job seekers benefit, I would say 95% weren't interested in getting a job - had no intention of attending an… Read Full Review

“Neath Jobcentre”

Written on: 03/02/2015 by kpf1309 (12 reviews written)

Where do i start. Simply, no words i can use here,can aptly describe my loathing of this institution.My visits here have been too regular for my liking but,were the result of redundancy and company closure on most occasions.Even though the reasons i was attending were not my fault i am,on all occasions, treated like a scrounger. You are treated with ignorance and a total lack of care and understanding.From the initial contact at the reception desk to the actual interview this never lets up… Read Full Review

Will never ask them for any help ever again in future if that's the case!!!!hope never… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/01/2015 by 245McDaniel (1 review written)

What I like about the Jobcentre? Completely nothing to like about them What I dislike about Job centre? Not enough room for words for that answer!, first started off being offered a job interview placed by the jobcentre I got a letter talking about the job placement and location then told I will receive a phone call in the next day if any slots are free as per no phone call. I came in to sign on to be told your money will stop for 6months due to failing to attend, to get told they sent a email… Read Full Review

“Liars”

Written on: 18/11/2014 by Manu2 (2 reviews written)

Looking forward to seeing you in court. You ignored the final warning letter (and my prior warnings) from Citizens advice. Thank you for all the flannel you gave me, it qualifies as hard evidence, not to mention fiddling with my personal data. The judge is going to cancel your shenanigans like a stamp, and award me the due sum plus compensation. Shame it's all public money (mind you, I paid into the system for years), but you should not have cut me off 4 times in the space of 2 weeks, using 4… Read Full Review
