Avoiding Employment Scams and Job Offer Frauds
Having a high BBB rating is just one indicator of a work-from-home company’s reputation. However, it’s not the only rating you should consider. Many legit companies don’t have ratings on the site, or they may even have poor ratings. You need to look at the big picture when searching for remote jobs.
Another way to avoid scammers is to look at reviews on Glassdoor.com. On Glassdoor, employees can leave anonymous reviews about companies, so you can see if a company has a positive work environment and mission. You can also learn about hidden fees, salaries, and employment benefits.
