I called the Employment Security Commission on my last day of work. Filed my claim via the internet, called the 866 number just to verify a few things.
During that phone call I was asked/and answered several questions regarding my availability to work.
She asked if I was willing to change my school schedule or forego my education
I said I would if I could, but there is no other time slots for my classes.
The wording of some of the questions were really trapping (would I, am I willing to, etc).
One question was unanswerable:
"Because of your availability to work, what percentage of jobs does that illiminate you from?"
Well, how many jobs are out there? I just said I couldn't answer the question, due to lack of information. She got a little huffy.
She asked about the program I was in at school, how long I was in the program, etc.
Then after all was said and done, she said that they would have to deliberate on my case since I was unwilling to change my school schedule or forego school.
I said, NO, I am UNABLE to change my schedule. She said there was not an option for "unable to change."
So we will see.
I called in my claim again yesterday (you have to report each week) and look for work twice a week and document each business you applied with). I applied at Food Lion and Lowe's last week.
