Horrible Interview

March 8, 2017

in Pissed!

So I get a notice for an interview asking me a bunch of questions why I quit working for my less than part-time employer last year during my previous claim (almost a year ago). I had quit this job because of the excessive time it took me to get there (3+ hours by bus one way). During this time I was collecting partial benefits and reported all of my income.
I didn’t specifically tell them I quit because the job had highly variable hours where I didn’t even work some weeks, and I didn’t know my last day was even going to be my last day.
The interviewer berated me on the phone for not specifically telling them I quit and demanded I make repayment arrangements right then and there. I said there was no way I could afford to and she said it would come out of my tax return. I told her I wasn’t getting a tax refund either.
They haven’t approved my last claim which I filed a few days ago and I don’t expect them to. Needless to say I’m probably going to have to file an appeal. Worst experience ever with an EDD employee..

So, I usually religiously certify Midnight Sunday Morning or as soon as I wake up at around 6am or 7am, but this time, I forgot about it until Monday and filed my two weeks certification online at 9:48AM. (It’s been almost a year since I’ve needed it much so got out of habit.) Second issue is that this is a new claim. Third issue is that I have a telephone interview scheduled for next Monday. My first guess was that I’d be held back until they interview me. But, then, I was allowed to use the online certification. I am now curious as to whether or not I will get a surprise this Tuesday evening with a load at around 9pm-11pm or so. It’s already 8:15pm, so it seems doubtful: they would have processed the bulk of approvals Monday evening, so today should have been a fast run, and have already happened by 8:15pm. I’m assuming I have to pass the telephone interview and then they will release it for that Tuesday.

If you are currently receiving benefits in California, are you required to attend workshops through CALjobs or anywhere else to continue receiving benefits?

Haven’t gotten my payment today.
Anyone else having issues?
When I sent my cert, I also put down that I started attending zchooligans. Anyone think that could be the issue?

no cash today is any one else having the same trouble

I’ve been receiving autopay on my SDI through EDD and I did not receive it this past Friday, is anyone else’s late? I thought it was cause of the holiday but I’ve been on it for months and never had it delayed. Thank you
