Fraudulent job offers have been made by individuals, organizations, Internet sites or social media accounts that claim they're representing Chevron. In some cases, job seekers are asked to pay a processing or work permit fee (as much as several thousand dollars) in order to begin their job.
These offers are fake and do not originate from Chevron. They are recruitment scams. Chevron never seeks fees from job applicants under any circumstances.
is your job offer a scam?
Several clues can help you realize your job offer may be a scam.
- Did you apply for a job at Chevron through our careers.chevron.com website? Chevron does not make unsolicited job offers.
- Are you being asked to pay processing fees, travel fees, visa fees or make a payment of any other kind - even if they claim that you will be reimbursed? Chevron never seeks fees from job applicants under any circumstances.
- Chevron may engage staffing agencies to help us identify candidates for positions. Third parties representing Chevron in the recruitment process will never request any fees from job seekers.
- Are they offering to arrange a visa? Chevron does not sponsor employment visas.
- Does the email come from a @chevron.com email address? Recruiting emails and online offers will come from YourCareer@ChevronCareers.com. Even if the email address contains the word "chevron," it may not be from Chevron. Examples of known fraudulent email addresses include: @canadachevron.com, @chevronoilandgas.uk, @chevron-s.com and @chvronuk.com
