How not to get caught by scammers at a job
How to distinguish a standing job from a false one
Often, sites offering job search services do not have time to check the accuracy of information about any employer. The applicant himself must be vigilant.
The first thing you should pay attention to is the job title and requirements. If you see the post “Assistant Manager”, and the requirements for it are minimal: “Experience and age do not matter,” such a vacancy should alert.
Any self-respecting employer clearly prescribes the requirements for the applicant, as further cooperation depends on it. In the vacancies of companies engaged in wholesale trade, the direction must be clearly indicated: medical goods, household appliances, clothing, etc.
In order not to be caught by the scammers and to distinguish a vacancy from a false one, it is necessary to compare and carefully verify the information indicated. If the vacancy says that the company is stable, large and has been on the market for more than 10 years, and there is no detailed information about it on the Internet - therefore, the information in the vacancy is false or embellished. A steadily growing company should have its own logo, website and landline telephone.
How not to get caught by fraudsters at the job interview
If you still decide to go for an interview and check the company in person, do not rush to fill in the proposed form with passport data and other personal information. Take a closer look at the details.
A small office with no identifying marks, empty tables and the presence in this cramp of many managers, each with an individual record, can testify about a dummy company and network marketing.
A smiling leader (as a rule, too young to hold a leading position) will be kind to you, as with a loved one: “How did you get there? How are you? ”Etc. All these personal questions are necessary for a person’s disposition.
Then you will be offered a completely free course of study, during which the lecturer will long and stubbornly talk about the pleasant appearance of how difficult it is to get a decent job and what unrealistic opportunities you can achieve with their company in a couple of years.
You may be asked to donate a small amount on the workbook, pass, training disk, etc. If you do not want to become a victim of fraudsters in the field of employment, never contribute funds!
How to recognize an insolvent employer
There are cases when the company seems to be stable, all the information is verified, the interview does not cause any suspicion and doubt, but you are asked to "work a week or two to take a closer look." According to the Labor Code of the Russian Federation, there is no question of any unpaid internship. The probationary period is included in the work experience, and the employer is obliged to issue an employee within 5 working days from the moment you began your duties.
With such unpaid part-time work, a pseudo-company is trying to reduce the workload of full-time employees. In this case, the main concerns will fall on your shoulders, and they will receive a salary.
In order to recognize an insolvent employer, talk with other employees: how long they have been working, what level of salary, and whether crediting takes place on time. Only by studying the vacancy in detail, the manager and the team as a whole can avoid mistakes.
