Not gonna happen loser. We will deny you benefits for five to six months by then you will be homeless and starve to death.

Be a very slow worker. Being slow and not getting anything done is one of the few things I know Walgreens will fire you for that you can draw unemployment from.

Bear in mind that Walgreens fights every single unemployment claim. Document everything as you go.

LOL @ Walgreens fighting every claim. That isn't accurate. The decision to fight claims is a decision that lies with the individual store manager. And I personally never fight claims. It isn't even worth it. The unemployment office is staffed with mini-Obama's that are there to rubber stamp every claim coming through.

Basically what you need to do is get fired for an instance without getting written up for it.

My buddy got let go for "misconduct" for several instances and never received any written documentation about it. Had to hire a lawyer for appeals court, but eventually won his case and received unemployment benefits.

Hired a lawyer to collect ueb. Does senior management know about the losers we have to work with? Maybe thats the problem. Fifteen to twenty years ago the higherups worked with better caliber of ppl now they think we are doing likewise.

in my state you don't get unemployment if the company can show they gave you a chance to improve. ie documentation, grows, pips, etc. so like someone else said, basically you need to get fired without being written up. can't be stealing though cus you won't get unemployment then either.
