"First was to apprise to you about the new approach if this interview conducting method is different to you. We believe the world is always advancing so it is important to stay on top of things as change is inevitable." After explaining job requirements that this was online work from home and benefits of the company. Also provided a history of the company and then proceeded with the normal interview questions with some that pertained to working from home. Then I was told "impressed with performance. I like the fact that you were direct and the manner in which you hit every question on the head with good answers." "I’ll forward this session to my superiors for further review while they get back to me….." I was told that I would be issued a check that I would need to immediately deposit and then use to purchase items for home office. Then asked what I would be using the check for eventhough previously stated that they would be sending a computer with software and a list of items required by home office. After getting back to me regarding my advancement then was emailed an offer letter and W4 to fill out. I stated that I was doing independent research to verify it was not a scam and asked if they could verify where they received my application. No response.
I also called the Real chsinc.com to inquire regarding work from home and if any of these people worked for them. I never received a return call.
Felicia Webster- initial contact via email
