I am in a bad way and unfortunately applied for temporary help food on line and have been bullied, interrogated, and declined benefits during phone conversations with income of approx. $400 a month. I brought a pile of documented proof to the office and sat there for 2.5 hours waiting to meet with worker's manager who called me on a PUBLIC phone in a room filled with people and refused to meet with me and instead questioned me excessively on my future ability to earn money. This office needs to be reported to NYS and I am pursuing a formal complaint as I have been declined benefits completely unjustified. It is humiliating enough to have to apply for help and to be treated like an animal is disgusting.

Lady was atrocious to me embarassing enough I need food stamps, hard enough that I had to walk three miles to get a emergency card which I was told would be waiting for me id just need id, get there and she said tough luck its wednesday and its "paper day" you can't talk to any workers till tomorrow and you only applied yesterday. Luckily one of the other girls checked and going the card after being belittled for twenty minutes and they never activated the card had to call back the next day due to a error in how they processed it first time I've ever written a review they make your experience so miserable that you'd rather starve than ask for help
