mckenzie, I took the liberty of doing a bit of research for you.. hubby has spent like 50 % of the last couple years on umemployement so I learned a bit. Go to http://www.uimn.org/ui/payment.htm
Basically it tells you that you can expect to be paid like the third week after you are elgible for benifits. You don't get paid the first week. Its called the waiting week, which is odd. But, if you think about it, you will probably get your last check from your employer during the first week or two.
I don't know all the rules in MN, but I know in Mass you can even work a few parttime hours while collecting and still get your full check... If you explore the web page a bit more you find out more of the ins and outs.
I'm sorry you didn't get the job. I just put in for a new job at my work myself. But you know you did pretty well at the interview and that should boost your confidence. Keep looking, and going on interviews. You are smart to be so proactive.

Hang in there!!! I agree that you should be able to get unemployment checks fairly soon. Did you hear anything on the other job???

Oh gosh, thank you so much for getting that site for me! I'm going to have to do a little research I do believe.

Its just SO frusterating knowing that I'm going to be without a job, but I don't know when they will be shutting the doors on the shop. My boss is currently looking @ buying another building to open our own shop, so hopefully.... HOPEFULLY, that goes thru, that would be excellent!

Thanks Gail

I haven't heard anything there yet - all I know is that they wouldn't pay what I get now and I can't afford to get any less.

This is so darn frusterating!

I'll say. So basically, they are closing your shop, but you won't know until you show up to work & the doors are locked? Are they giving you any warning(more than an few hours)?

I really hope you can find a decent job. Because if you can't, then when I graduate I never will.

I kninda know how you feel Kenz. Lee is the one who pays our mortgage and he loses his job Thrusday. Luckily he has some work lined up to start but its construction (hey now I will have my own HOT construction worker) but that is temporary until he can find something better. Good luck!

Its scary, isn't it?

Unemployment isn't going to pay me what I need to be paid, thats for sure.

I'm the one who pays the majority of the bills - (we split everything in 1/2), but I pay the most of it all usually. And without my steady job, I don't know how we're gonna make ends meet.... I got no sleep last night thinking about this.

You can't worry about what you can't control. That is how I am dealing with it. No unemployement doesn't pay what you need to pay bills. Is John still working 2 jobs?

He hasnt worked at his 2nd job for about 2 weeks, he's been off the schedule and we've been really busy on the weekends - I just wish I knew what was going to happen!
