Employers you should watch out for
"Extraordinary” remuneration
Salary is always the number that candidates want to see first in the job post. Grasping this mentality, many employers have offered towering salaries and extremely ideal working conditions, … in order to lure "chickens”.
Deposit (fee payment) requirement
Many candidates are surprised when they come to the interview and are asked by the employer to pay a fee. However, a well-qualified employer never takes anything from the candidates.
Be sober and tactfully refuse to leave this crazy interview!
Submit original documents
Many candidates are so in need of work that they did not read carefully the terms of the contract before signing, even submitting the original documents. When they wanted to quit, they were harassed, their salaries were withheld, and even their original identification documents were kept.
