I've been unemployed for a while now, so when I got a text on my phone telling me that my resume had been reviewed, and that they wanted to interview me on Google Hangouts, I didn't see anything wrong.
The details were, work at home customer service, 5 days of training at 8 hours a day for $12 an hour, then bumping me to $30 an hour for 8 hour days. In addition, they would be sending me a check (Red flag 1) to cover the setup of my home office... see more
MLK day is coming up soon and it has got me thinking about those who do what is right.
A few weeks ago as I was getting off the train my keys fell out of my pocket and due to the lack of sleep, I didn’t even notice (#momlife).
I would have traveled for an hour and a half without them, rushed over to the car and then realized they were gone. My baby would have been waiting at daycare and I probably would have cried.

Received an email stating something similar to
RESUME APPROVED , and asking you to interview on Google Hangouts ?
Take a minute and look at the email itself. Is it from a legitimate company email, or is it a Gmail account? That's red flag number 1.

I can't believe what just almost happened to me...I received a msg via Gmail, and it seemed legit at first...I looked up the individual on LinkedIn and read his profile etc. and the pic matched. Long story short, as he's telling me about the position and company, he asks me to tell him a little about myself and proceeds to ask me my exact location, age. etc....I said
