Five Star Electric has received notification of persons receiving job offers that do not originate with Five Star or our parent company, Tutor Perini. These offers often request detailed personal information and/or payment of fees.
Fraudulent employment scams are increasing around the world and target many industries; the construction industry is no exception. These scams often use company logos, names and titles of actual company personnel, spoofed phone numbers and slightly modified email extensions. They may also reference real construction projects with real job openings.
Be advised that Five Star Electric DOES NOT:
- make unsolicited employment offers via email, text, social media or any other format
- request any fees be paid as part of the recruiting or hiring process
- use recruiting agencies that charge job seekers a fee
- ask prospective employees for any financial details, such as credit card or bank account numbers
- require candidates to provide social security, driver’s license or passport numbers
- utilize any free email services such as gmail.com, hotmail.com, yahoo.com, aol.com, etc.
A legitimate offer of employment from Five Star Electric will only be made after a candidate completes an official application and has been interviewed by company personnel.
