Pretends to be hiring for work at home job

 

My Complaint: Here is the link to where I found them:

www.upward.careers/job…

I was looking online for new employment and came across a work from home opportunity that I just couldn’t pass up submitting my resume to. I was up late at night but received both a text and an email first thing the next morning offering to interview at 9:00 that same morning. I have a job currently and there was no way I would be able to push things around there in such short notice to give them my full, undivided attention. So I asked to have it rescheduled and they set it up for the following morning at the same time. The entire interview was to be done online, which was different for me, but I figured if it was a work at home job then it made sense. I was told to either log in on yahoo or google hangouts.

(Here is the email I received)
