received a job offer today I was very excited however they asked me to download a app called hangouts to do the interview the interview was very non traditional and had many unique questions but I pushed through. Then they said I was hired and asked for my Verizon wireless account email and password to order the products I needed at home. I called them out on it and they just told me to have a good day I wanted 2 hours of my time that I could have had a real interview very disappointed

Unfortunately more employers are using the telephone for job interviews instead of in person interviews, so that isn't unexpected but I've never heard of a potential employer: ask for a password to an account, and IM interviews aren't really normal. Some employers will want to schedule by email, and phone interviews are usually done on cell phones since that tends to be a request on applications. This could be a scam, but if you have anything with an actual phone number and address then try to find directions and/or call them because Google checks may say whether this "business" is a scam or has been reported as one.

if It said anything about you being approved by the hiring department it was a scam. I almost got taken. Google Hangouts and Skype are the new interviews now. Go figure. I like it. I only have to look good on the top half and I don’t have to travel to get rejected. :)

I’m sorry to hear about what happened to you. I know that it was very disappointing. However, just think what could of happened if you weren’t smart enough to catch on to what was happening to you.

I'm sure there's a lot of that kind of stuff out there everybody wants you to apply online it's a different apps and such and it seems like bad things happen whatever happened to going in and doing a traditional paper app instead of having to put your whole story out there for anybody to use and abuse there's got to be something that we can do to protect ourselves we're supposed to live in a world of automation but it's a scary thing
