8/13/2015 A BIG ZERO star.. If you have to call IDES
A BIG ZERO star.. If you have to call , have a full battery on your phone, 4 to 5 hours to waste, and have every piece of information in front of you---they don't like to wait a second for you to check your birth hour and minute .Or if you are like me , you can drive the 56 miles to the office to be told that you should have phoned your question in. BY the way, my phone was still on hold from them after the hour drive ,after the hour in line wait. GREAT WORK ...

8/9/2014 IDES - If it were possible to give NO stars ,I
If it were possible to give NO stars ,I would.Carol is right . Incompetency abounds at I.D.E.S. When I was laid off in 2009 I.D.E.S. said I was entitled to a certain amount in benefits. FIVE MONTHS (FIVE MONTHS in this age of computers!!!!) later I get a phone call telling me that I was being OVERPAID due to an "error" by one of their poor excuses for affirmative action "'you gotz to go onlines we aint not able to helps peeples wit dat stuff heres" is pretty much the treatment I got also. I wound up OWING these MORONS over $1200.00 because of THEIR screw up! If I made that kind of mistake on MY job I would have been fired. While applying AGAIN this year I mentioned this to the condescending "public servant" at the Lawrence Ave. office. His reply was "Those things happen sometimes" THEY SHOULDN'T HAPPEN AT ALL!!!! Now I'm being given the royal run around because my former employer tried to circumvent her legal responsibilities by illegally paying us 1099 instead of W2 !!! Now I'm going through the bureaucratic mess again. However I have had better results with their 866-244-5631 number than the 773 number that they NEVER answer.At least someone at THAT number can speak a sentence of English and maybe can even write their name.

1/22/2014 Incompetence abounds at the IDES
Incompetence abounds at the IDES; no one answers the phone, the website has been giving error messages for three days and all phone numbers given (when able to get through) are automated messages redirecting you to call another number, which then tells you to call the number that referred you to that number, ad nauseum...
After filing complaints for the past three days (via their complaint form online), no response and no way to resolve the issue; simple reset of my PIN
Went to local office and was told by someone who could not structure a proper English sentence 'you gotz to go onlines we aint not able to helps peeples wit dat stuff heres'
...and this is what my tax dollars are paying for?

1/8/2014 IDES needs more customer service personnel.
They need more customer service personnel. I have been trying to get through and all I get is - busy signals, voice mail, and hang-ups. I did get my check from the state supported unemployment and now I will have to make a trip to Grayslake, IL. They said to call this number or arrive in person.
