8888 is only for complaints against government agencies. pag private agency, DOLE dapat ang may hawak niyan. BUT as with any other job agency, they do not hire people pag walang ready na work. wala silang kung baga pool of people under their employ na dun sila kukuha pag may naghire sa kanila. ganito ang nangyayari, may company na lalapit sa agency kasi need nila ng tao. thats the only time na maghahanap yung agency. most of the time, meron na mga na interview yung agency beforehand (i.e. your situation) na pwede na nila agad ipasa dun sa client nila na company.
so your situation is normal. malamang walang work available kasi yung mga company na engaged in endo before medyo dahan2x muna sila until they get a clearer picture of what kind of endo Duterte wanted to end. initial reports say that it does not apply to project based work (i.e. those with a fixed term only like construction, pag tapos ng construction wala na work). ang ayaw ata kasi is yung practice na tipong hire ang isang tao for 5months then after 5months new contract na naman but doing same work, same company.
