I was contacted by a recruiter, for an online data-position through hangouts. After going through the interview process for 60 minutes; I was told that I was hired after that, they told me to buy an IPhone ll which was listed or around 700-1,000 dollars and send it to their IT dept so it can be reprogrammed for data I need to have in order to work online. I just told the recruiter that I was unemployed! After the person cut off from hangouts... see more

Sometimes when things are tough it can do a number on your self-esteem, but don't let that negativity creep in!

Just know that you are already better than you think you are.

Here's to YOU!

Keep up the good work and have an amazing week! : )

You are doing a great job.

I came to jobcase to look for work, inspire, uplift/empower others and to give ADVICE. I would greatly appreciate if you only message me STRICTLY about business not pleasure. Thank you!

Btw, Is anyone else having this issue?

They claim to be a work from home company, a representative named Libby Sartain (yes the professional author) they are using her name and info as the hiring manager you go through an interview process it seems so legit, well it came down to them asking to send me a check to purchase the product in order to do the job. I said ok, she then emails me a check for $1900 in my name right then and there I knew it was fraud, she was so adamant about me... see more

Someone posing as a company called Advanced BioDesign has been recruiting and interviewing me via google hangouts. We have not spoken on the phone or via video. Only text back and forth. The people they are pretending to be are real, but I assume that the actual people do not know that their names are being used for this scam. They selected me for a job and offered it to me, although they did not leave any room for me to accept or decline. They... see more

Good afternoon everyone. I just received 2 job offers. One from a very stable collections agency and one from Cardinal Health working from home. Cardinal claims to offer training with a pay of 17 per hour and then 30 an hour after training. The interview was done via Google Hangouts. Anyone heard of this and if so is this a legit opportunity? Thank you.

The Internet is ripe with these type of scams. I'll admit to falling for one once, where I deposited a bogus check... see more

So, I was requested to interview for a customer service vacancy, which will allow me to work remotely. I would love to be able to work primarily from home, so of course I I was thinking, this is the opportunity that I've been hoping will come my way. The interview wasn't face to face nor over the phone. Rather, the interviewer conducted it all through Google Hang Outs. I found it a bit strange. Nevertheless she hired me and required all my... see more

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

This job is posted looking for admin help. You will not be able to speak to the 'owner' only chat via google hangouts. Job seems to be an elaborate scam. Either to finally get your SS# or bank account or free work.
Beware. Devil's in the details, and this 'guy' is full of shady details.

Beware of Google Hang Outs. Companies that are legitimate do not interview that way.
