The Texas Workforce Commission can go ** themselves. They didn't do anything in the last 5 months to help me find a job anywhere. I was waiting and being patient but nothing happened. Don't waste your time with these people. They're just a big waste of your time if you're trying to find a job somewhere.

I work hard a good part of my life. I fall from employment over two months ago. I was approved for it but they still keep denying me. Those people don't know what they're doing. They're useless. Arizona is more blessed than this state is. They keep calling and need to verify information but they ain't doing nothing to give me my money. They're useless. They need to be farting. Some people need to come in. It's going to actually work for us.

The overall process for getting unemployment benefits takes too long. Why do ya'll need to reach out to a employer I started work with who has absolutely nothing to do with my previous claim? They waste people's time trying to figure out things that don't even relate to what really needs to be situated. Just a waste of time and energy. Go find something else better to do. There's no need to reach out to my new job if I was only trying to get benefits from my old one. Ridiculous. We are taxpayers.

Evil demonic entity in my opinion that works very hard to ensure the well-being of the employers but ** on citizens. They try to find any little thing to disqualify you and you could be a law abiding tax paying citizen it doesn’t matter - you won’t Get help. ALSO NO EMPLOYEES EVER TO ANSWER PHONE!!!!

This is my first experience in 15 years with TWC. TWC to me seems like an employer-favoring, one-sided firm. It seems to me that TWC is after the poor employees who no longer have a job. It is a shame. Instead of timely paying ex-employees their benefits, this agency delays and delays. Almost impossible to reach a real person on the phone. They would rather let the poor applicant get evicted than pay him or her benefits. The claimant actually worked his/her ** off for so many years! First time filing for unemployment and TWC wants to hear it from the employer the reason for firing. Really TWC? So if it is a very small business and the supervisor is a jerk, then then applicant will never get the unemployment benefits that he/she deserves?? Shame on TWC. Like I said, TWC is pretty much Only for the employers. Seems to me that they would go to any extent to Not pay benefits. Shame.

My husband was "let go" from his job of 6 years 26 January after returning to work after a two-week battle with COVID that he got from another employee. The employer isn't careful with employee exposure, so workers get COVID constantly. They told him he wasn't fired, then lied to TWC, saying he was fired. Unemployment Benefits were denied after one payment. My husband appealed/disputed but nothing has been done except they send him job listings out of his experience and ignore his calls and emails. Why isn't this organization censured when they stab workers in the back?

I spoke with Edith who was sounding helpful but at the end of the conversation she asked for my username. I gave that to her and when I tried to login the next day she had disabled my account. Very unfortunate experience and I'm trying to resolve it. Some people are just mean spirited unfortunately.

I worked for my employer for many years. The last 2 years of my employment was worse than a nightmare. All of a sudden constant write ups and threats of being fired everyday for things that were not true. Even when I presented proof the allegations were fabricated I was bullied, harassed, and made to feel lower than low. I was let go July 6th. I was working and all of a sudden all platforms we used were kicking me off and disabling my accounts. Tried to call my boss, straight to vm, tried to call the assistant straight to vm.
The next day while I went back to the indeed job hunt (that's how I found said job) I had a message from my manager firing me stating I was over 2 hours late (I was 2 hrs early and watched the platforms kick me off when she terminated me in the system) with a write up stating there was no need to sign and send back. Mind you "Over 2 hours late" but sent the message through indeed only an hr after my scheduled start time. I've never applied for unemployment after 34 years on this earth. Military family "We don't take handouts. Man up soldier, and figure it out! Cowgirls don't cry." I went against my upbringing and applied for unemployment. Bills are due and actually being disconnected due to still waiting for them to even approve or deny my very first claim. I'm already in suit to get the over 4 grand I'm owed in back ot pay they refused to pay me and even more just by not paying me for a full 40 worked.
Now, I have to deal with this crap! I apply at more than 20 openings a day. I get nowhere. I hope that none of these people with TWC or the company I worked for at that ever have to go through what they have put me through. And to read the horror stories that make mine look like a kid's story that gets a happy ending shame on you for putting those people through the pain and suffering you're putting them through!

I believe the woman I spoke to stated her name was Rosie **. I was speaking but she couldn't hear me so she rudely yelled "I can't hear youuuu!" into the phone. So I spoke louder. Please don't think I won't match your energy, miss ma'am. There was also a bit of a lag between our calls so I accidentally cut her off and went to apologize when I realized, but received a snarky "can I finish my sentence?" instead. MA'AM? YOU just cut ME off, so you have absolutely no right to speak. Don't work in this field if you're just gonna treat people like garbage. Just don't bother. These people aren't worth the hassle - they see themselves as gods and you are a tiny ant that they love stepping all over.

I was discriminately and wrongfully terminated June 6, 2021 From a small communications company out of Hondo, Tx that had under 50 employees with a CEO that is extremely unprofessional. I felt immediately after my Initial phone call with TWC rep/contractor that I was gonna get denied the benefits that I have paid into for over 25 years. The deadline to turn in my appeal was June 30 and it was faxed off from a TWC solutions building from an untrained contractor that faxed it to a bogus phone number causing it to be late. I was locked out of the portal over 15 times due to suspected fraud and IDme was a nightmare. After submitting the fax cover sheet that my appeal on time I moved on to the tribunal appeal 7 months later. The decision Letter I got from the Tribunal hearing officer had dates from 2010-11 with false statements and lies when I called TWC about it. I got a corrected second letter that was just as pathetic and an obvious coverup.
Moving onto the commission board appeal by majority vote I was denied again due to timeliness going back to my original appeal. How can I get a majority vote against me if my appeal was mishandled by TWC rep that faxed it to the wrong phone number. I provided credible evidence and was still denied. Not right and just wrong when you’re fighting your former employer for their unfair practices and you end up fighting TWC Due to their untrained employees, rude phone contractors, fraud prevention and their biased hearing officers. I have a feeling I will be going to court and I don’t think the outcome will be good but I can’t give up.
The EEOC Issued me a right to Sue letter and my lawyer is working on that. My goal is to stop the small companies that treat veterans such as myself and everyone else that are at will like garbage and think they can get away with it. The TWC with their ignorant bliss has caused me to lose faith in our system and is a scam to everyday people who lose their jobs to companies that cannot treat their employees fair.
