Does not provide jobs
I expect a Job Provider to provide jobs for me to apply to. I go in to MADEC every couple of weeks and the "case manager" (because apparently I'm a case and not just someone looking for work) sits me down and proceeds to ask me how I am, how have the last couple of weeks been, what am I up to etc, etc. Not once in 5 months has she said, "I've got a position you can apply for". I'm not there to have a social visit, I don't want to discuss my life. Just give me job openings. Isn't that what a Job Provider is meant to be doing? Absolutely ridiculous and the people who complain about the unemployed should complain about how the government is wasting millions of dollars on useless job agencies.
It is difficult to write anything positive about this job services Australia, provider.
If I were given the task of reviewing the performance of this particular JSA, I would only need a piece of cardboard and a nice thick, black texta. I would write on the piece of cardboard in big letters, your sacked! Please return all company items, including your ID card, and leave the building immediately. This would be the only communication I would have with staff as I was performance reviewing them. A lazier, more hostile, negative and non-outcomes focused group of employees, you will have trouble finding. My own experiences as a JSA clie...nt who is being managed by this current provider, is that this employer actively seeks out anti-social behaviours in applicants, and those who demonstrate the highest level of psychopathy, well they get the job. I have had two consultants in the last eight months, and both appear to be quite disturbed. The first was a text book passive/aggressive personality, who has the emotional range of a windscreen wiper (e.g. stop and go) and was about as reliable as a well worn, pair of car tyres. She was also lazy, constantly absent, completely unhelpful and unable to effectively communicate, with either her colleagues, (hence I would get phone calls from other staff members, how I was going, two days after I had attended my monthly face to face meeting- consultant failed to let them know I attended and didn't need to be phoned up) and clients. Then when confronted about a task or activity that she had failed to carry out, she would launch into some great diatribe about how she was taking time off, and I should have found someone else to assist- once again, too lazy to put an out of office message, up on her email account) The second consultant although a bit more cheerful (though equally two faced and malicious) well this one, is not only turns hostile when questioned, but has delusions of grandeur, both about her previous career (which was in the fast food industry) and her own level of self importance. e.g. started ranting and raving about how she is too important to put her name forward for any job that might be on offer- I counteracted what she was saying by stating, that outside of MADEC, nobody knows you or cares about you. She reiterated by telling me to find a new provider and then told me to leave. Whilst I was leaving, she suspended my payments, for wait for it (not fully participating in the interview process?) (I got them reinstated) but not before I threatened the area manager of Madec Kadina, with some very unpleasant media exposure. So if you want to choose this JSA provider, read this review first, and do not say, I did not warn you!
Questions & Answers
What does your organisation actually do? It certainly doesn't help clients find employment? In 12 months I have done one day of training (which almost didn't happen because staff sent my online training to an out of date email address) and then it took eleven months for a staff member, to accept my resume. (Which I tried to email to MADEC but it kept bouncing because the MADEC server would not accept my email program) Now I am near a phase and what has MADEC organised? Sorting through Detritus at the back of a Salvation Army Op Shop? (After dismissing the volunteering activity, I myself found?) This is disgraceful, considering I have more qualifications than the people, who are meant to be assisting me?
