Hello, I’m a 19 year old who has just finished college in England, i have been searching for a job for over Three months now, and i have finally been succesful. I managed to get myself a full-time job as a crew member at McDonalds (i know it’s not much..) I’m stoked to have gotten the job, however, and this is a big however..
I completed my orientation over 3 weeks ago, and had my first shift last Tuesday during my first shift, they asked me to do an 11-7 shift on Saturday (which was last Saturday) that was fine, so i completed my second shift and asked the schedule manager when i will be placed on the McTime system on ourlounge.co.uk (McDonalds crew website) and he replied telling me that it wouldn’t be too long. Because of this i signed off at the job centre thinking nothing of it.
So i thought nothing of that, i just expected to be put on the system and would be starting my third shift sometime soon.
Today i finally got put on the system, and i couldn’t find my name on any of the shifts for the next 3 weeks. So i spoke to the Schedule manager (on facebook, as you do, haha!) And he told me that, because the Schedule was made before i started working, i won’t be on it, until that Schedule is finished. It turns out that the new Schedule won’t start until the 5th of November, This means i am going a whole month with no money. It sounds like no big deal, but i live alone, and had my expenses paid for whilst i was on Job seekers allowance. And as i thought i had officially started work and was doing over 16 hours, i decided now would be the time to sign off. Which has heavily back fired. So to the point, i was wandering if i would be able to re-sign on at the job centre for the next Month and get everything paid for like i did before, or will they just think i’m trying to pull a fast one? It’s not a massive problem, as i have a bit of money saved, it would just be nice to know that i have no reason to worry.
Thanks for the feedback, don’t be to harsh it’s my first thread ! Haha ;DNovember 25, 2012 at 2:22 pm #35758
Probably a bit late now, but I would have spoken to the job centre, explained the situation (and taken prints of the conversation on Facebook) and see what they said from there.
I hope you have plenty of shifts now
