have any of you found these to be of any help ?
for finding work I might add.......I have been out of work for 5 years with depression ...and its during this time arthur has been suspected and what I am now being treated for
I dont trust any agency or firm that is target and bonus driven. I had a phone call from A4E, the man I used to see told me on the phone he was making an appointment for me his exact words "Im determined to get you into work and if I have to take you to the interviews myself Ill do it" I told him as Id told him before Ive been diagnosed with arthritis, in pain, waiting to see a specialist and I am on ESA until I get sorted out. He didnt listen, still insisted and made the apointment. They get a 200 bonus for each person they get into a job and when I was there they tried getting me bar jobs, ringing round all the bars in my area without even asking me! Ive never done bar work in my life and Im quite capable of cold calling bars and pubs myself if bar work what Im wanting to do! Not just that- the way things are at the minute especially who would want to employ someone that has other people ringing on their behalf?
Be careful of these agencies.
