Absolutely dismayed. Thier whole purpose is so you can 'move in to full time work' which i did.
I was earning too much to receive payments for about 7 months a year but then would have no income. Despite being almost full time and receiving $0.00 a fortnight in payments I was still required to do full Job search and Work for the dole.
After explaining my situation I was told if I didn't declare, my payment would be suspended and wouldn't have to do jobsearch, and to report for that period when my work stopped. So I did that. I declared every cent I earned and there was never a problem.
However RoboDebt has averaged out my earnings across every month of those years, and a year after succesfully moving into full time work, was slapped with a 4k debt.
I appealed however we changed payroll providers in 2017 so I couldn't provide payslips for the first 2 years. Instant debt collectors.
Outraged, like every one else. It's absolutely appalling what they are doing.
