OP, my husband was taken in to the work for the dole program at lifeline, but when he showed up for orientation they decided that the big guy with the beard and shaved head may have been a bit too scary for the ladies in the shop so he was given admin tasks at head office and then proved that the had some smarts, got offered a traineeship, got a permanent position, got a date with me (hehehe) etc etc etc.
It can be a really good opportunity if you get the right place and really give it a chance to work for you. Some of the programs can be very innovative, at my old employer they did projects like photography, vintage fashion styling including planning and running a fashion parade, etc etc.

5 years ago my partner did work for the dole 3 days a week, for about 6 weeks (then he got a job), but in that time my parent had to do a lot of outside maintenance work, going to the showground fixing chairs, painting, gardening. It depends.
