Scam Companies

Naghahanap ka ng trabaho. Masipag na naghahanap online, nagpopost ng resume at sumasali sa iba’t ibang FB groups and job posting sites. May nag text, may tumawag, may nag comment sa iyong profile, isang kumpanya sa Ortigas ang naghahanap ng office staff at kapag nakapasa, ay maaring i-deploy sa Makati or sa Manila.

(You’re looking for work, diligently submitting resumes and checking available job vacancies on Facebook groups and job posting sites. One day, you received an invitation from a recruiting agency located in Ortigas looking for an office staff to be deployed to a certain company in either Makati or Manila.)

Isang araw lang ang proseso at dinagdag pa na kung meron kang mga kaibigan or kamag-anak na naghahanap ng trabaho, ay maari mo silang isama. Di na kailanganag mag formal attire, maari kang pumunta sa kanilang opisina kahit anong oras mula 9 am to 5 pm. Sa katuwaan mo, sinama mo ang buong barangay. Tamang-tama, mag-su2mmer, mag pa2sko, magkakaroon kayo na pera para sa mga outing nyo, sa pambayad sa bahay or pang date nyo ni bae.

(It’s a one-day hiring process and the recruiter added that you may bring your friends along if they are also looking for work. She informed you that you don’t need to wear formal attire nor you have to report at exactly 9 in the morning. Out of surprise and excitement, you asked your friends to tag along.)

Pagkatapos ng interview, “Congrats!” sabi ng recruiter. “Magpamedical ka na to see if you are physically fit for the job.” Yes, achieve! yun ang nasa isip mo. Then hihingan ka ng 300 pesos na pampamedical.

(After the interview, the recruiter congratulated you and asked you to take medical tests to determine if you’re physically fit for the job. Wow, that easy peasy. You’re finally getting a job. Afterwards, she asked you to pay 300 pesos for the medical fee.)

Teka, ba’t ko kelangang magbayad? Pailing iling at nakakunot ang nuo, di mo alam ang sasabihin. Kelangan mo ng trabaho pero ayaw mo ring magbayad ng pampamedical dahil malaking gastos yon.

(Wait, seriously? You are quite hesitant to hand over 300 pesos. For you, 300 pesos is a huge expense.)

“Kung wala kang medical, di ka namin mabibigyan ng trabaho.” Giit ng recruiter, medyo tumaas ang boses at parang inis.

(“If you won’t take the medical tests, we won’t be able to give you a job.” She said, irritation lacing her voice.)

Ang kaibigan mo na tapos ng magbayad ay nagsabi na 300 lang naman yun at maari mo naman itong mabawi pagkasahod. Sa isip isip mo ay tama sya at ikaw ay nagabot ng nasabing halaga…

(Your friend, who just finished paying, told you that 300 php is not a biggie if eventually you’ll be having a job. Convinced, you paid for the fee.)

then after 2 weeks, NGA NGA :X

(No job after 2 weeks)

Ito ay malimit na scam ng mga recruitment agencies kuno. Ganito ang malimit nilang postings:

  1. Most employment scams are done by most companies in Tektite Ortigas. Not generalizing though, but these practices are so rampant that if a recruiter asks you to report in PSE, that’s a red flag.
  2. Job postings with unrealistically low requirements and good perks can serve as a sign that the job opening is unlikely to be true (high school grad, with or without experience, with promotion and above minimum salary)
  3. Why ask the applicant to text you, instead of forwarding your resume to their company e-mail? Another red flag
  4. Payment for medical fees! The ultimate sign. I worked for small, medium-sized and multi-national companies but they won’t ask applicants to pay for medical tests, especially if the clinic is situated near, or within the company’s premises. Companies SHOULD PAY for medical fees, not the applicants. If the applicant took the test but the results weren’t forwarded, s/he has been duped.

How can we avoid such scams?

  1. Check if the company is listed under SEC or DTI (but even if they are listed, it’s not guaranteed that they are operating legally but you can check the registered address and owner’s name)
  2. What’s the history of the company? How long has it been operating? Are there any reviews available or record of applicants who were given jobs? Companies less than 2 years could be a potential fly-by-night business.
  3. Recruiter’s attitude towards applicants (Usually recruiters of these sham companies don’t like being asked a lot of questions. And even if they did answer your questions but they answer vaguely, that’s suspicious.)
