    Receptionist/Data Entry Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Spring, TX
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Prysmian Group (Spring, TX) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied to an ad via Craigslist, in which I received an email back from a Terry Charlton to add a Dayane Ribiero to Google Hangouts to conduct an online interview. The interview as I thought using google hangouts would of maybe been a video call or even hopefully a phone interview, but it was neither of those. They started the interview through a huge conversation on google hangouts asking me many series of questions. After getting through the whole process about 25 minutes later I was offered the Receptionist position in which I would work from home. Going further into conversation I was told I needed certain supplies like Laptop, Printer/Scanner and like 5-7 different office accounting programs and in order to get these programs I would be sent a check via FedEx or USPS to my home address in which I would need to go deposit via my drive thru ATM only! After funds are made available I would need to contact Mrs. Dayane and let her know that funds are now available and through which of the vendors she uses to get my supplies from and if I understood these directions. After going to the Prysmian website she sent me the link to earlier in our conversation there is no number to contact Prysmian and couldn't believe they are willing to send a check to a random person whom they haven't gotten the chance to meet with face to face. I messaged her back and after more consideration of everything said to me.. I could not risk releasing any of my personal information to her without knowing if this is really how Prysmian does their recruiting. She immediately signed off of google hangouts and never responded back to my message. This was the most absurd thing I have ever heard of doing.
