I went through the whole process until they said I was offered the job at which time they stated, "You will need some Data entry/Accounting software, a MacBook and also a Berkshire certified time tracker to commence your training and orientation and also you need the software to get started with work. The work of the time tracker is to calculate your hours worked since this is an online work from home.
The funds for the software/mini office, Macbook will be provided for you by the company via check.The check you will use to make purchase for the equipment from the company
certified vendor and all equipment will have labels on them with the company name, they will have you connected to the company database, Got it?
Preg Donald: You will also be undergoing a 2 weeks training and orientation which will commence as soon as you have all working materials and you are rest assured that you will be paid
for it.You will be getting your paper work a HR document during your orientation and training from your supervisor,you are to fill,sign and send back to us okay?
Preg Donald: The check would be issued out to you 10AM Tomorrow , As soon as the accounting department sends the check to me I would forward it to you via email, as soon as you have it you are to have it printed out from your email ,sign at the back check and make use of your bank mobile APP on your phone to make the deposit, you are to deduct $100 as your sign on bonus. Got it?
Preg Donald: I’ll also be here to provide you with further instructions on how to make payments to the vendor in regards to acquiring your working equipment and software programs, got it?" I then proceeded to tell him that "Sorry but this feels like a scam if you work for intel, as you say, why would you not just send me the required equipment?" to which he did not reply.
