RAV Registration - Initial Questions

I was at RAV in Thalwil (Kanton Zürich - Region Süd) and at registration they asked me a few questions. I was wondering what the consequences of the possible answers are. Knowing about it is too late in my case but it might help someone else.



The first question was which Arbeitslosenkasse I prefer. Of course they did not "recommend" one or comment on them but are there better/worse ones? The choices were:
Arbeitslosenkasse UNIA
Arbeitslosenkasse des Kantons Zürich
Arbeitslosenkasse syndicom
Arbeitslosenkasse SYNA


The second question was if I am a Führungskraft or a Fachkraft, so manager or specialist.


The other questions were a bit more transparent: what languages I speak, if I drive or not, what my profession is and finally, when I would have time to meet my RAV adviser - which in fact decides who I would be assigned to.


Is the choice of Arbeitslosenkasse critical? What about Führungskraft/Fachkraft?

No, don't worry, it's not critical at all. It's an admin thing just about who pays your unemployment money.

The other one is also not critical, just getting info about the type of employee you are.

Not critical, but UNIA is the workers union and if there is any grey area they will err on the side of the worker.... Remember they are the ones that actually calculate your benefits not the RAV.

For instance the guy at the UNIA always checks your monthly form to make sure you gave 'the right answers' before he officially accepts it. Twice he has had me correct my answers ;-)

Originally when I had to decide the lady at the RAV said they can't recommend anyone, while tapping with her pen on the checkbox beside the UNIA option!
