  One Response to “Call out for your experiences of Maximus and the Work Programme.”

  1. I’ve been getting messed around by Maximus for nearly 2 years.
    Everything they asked me to do I have done & more.
    Now i’m looking at a sanction.

    My adviser has been off for 4 weeks sick so they handed me over to another in the office,she wanted my email so I could stay in touch while i was on a training course set up by maximus through learn direct.

    I received an email saying that my maximus account had been 365 days in- active and had been cancelled, so i contacted the girl in the office via email and sent a very quick message saying.

    “Hi, i recevied this email from you people please read i have no idea what it’s about”.

    I got an email back saying i find the use of the words “YOU PEOPLE” to be offensive.

    They never got back to me about the suspended account and the office girl that i was supposed to report to has blanked me every-time i was in the office.

    The only written paper work i have had in four weeks was a letter telling me my review date & time.
    2pm thursday.

    so i go to the review I get my work program for the next month and on the top of the paper work they have put ( job search 1pm – 3pm), because i never turned up at 1pm for the jobsearch they are going to sanction me.
    I’m not even supposed to be their i’m supposed to be on a training course with learn direct.
