OK, i been asking around and getting different answers from people. A) If i have been at UPS as a casual driver since April 2011 and they lay me off in Dec will i be able to collect unemployment come Jan 2012? I ask not because i am looking at milking the system but i own a house and need income coming in (even though i am saving every penny i earn now just in case of this). Which brings me to next question. B) I am going to start applying for new jobs now just in case they don't call me back in Jan. My question is don't you think its going to look bad that i keep taking days off of work to go to interviews? I am sure at some point my boss is going to ask me whats going on. Should i be honest and tell him i am looking for another job? I haven't missed one day since i started. Thanks guys.
