A job advertisement claiming to be at Changi Airport offers walk-in interviews at the JB Hotel
In May, Changi Airport Group (CAG) announced that it was looking to fill more than 6,600 vacancies as air travel makes a comeback.
Changi Airport has 6,600 vacancies, hiring locally at upcoming job fair
Recently, a photo of an alleged job posting from the company started circulating online.
It says Changi Airport is currently hiring sales and customer service staff, with salaries of up to S$3,000 and a four-day work week. Walk-in interviews will take place in Johor Bahru (JB), Malaysia.
However, many netizens are skeptical about the authenticity of the ad, suspecting it might be a scam.
The ad claims that Changi Airport is recruiting sales and customer service staff
Monday (August 15), Chinese press reported that Changi Airport is openly recruiting sales assistants and customer service agents.
Or at least that’s what a printout of a job posting claims.
According to the flyer, Changi Airport pays up to RM10,000, or more than S$3,000, for the roles.
Staff will work mornings or evenings and benefit from the coveted four-day work week. Training and uniforms will also be provided.
The job posting says walk-in interviews will be held at a JB hotel this Friday (August 19).
Netizens think Changi Airport job posting is a scam
Despite, or perhaps because of the attractive offer, most Internet users seem to believe that the job offer is fake.
Many commentators made jokes about how the interviewees could end up becoming victims of human trafficking.
This user said that holding “interviews” for big business in hotels is actually a common tactic by scammers to trick their victims.
In June, a man was arrested for luring hundreds of Malaysians by claiming to offer them lucrative jobs. So these fears and theories might not be so far-fetched after all.
Netizen urged everyone to check Changi Airport careers page or social media platforms for legitimate job postings to avoid being scammed.
MS News contacted CAG for a statement and will update this article once they respond.
Beware of unofficial job offers
Scams are everywhere these days, whether in the form of fake job postings or phishing messages. Therefore, the public is right to be wary of such things.
Since the Changi Airport job advertisement does not appear to be from an official source, one should think twice or do proper research before submitting an application.
Always make sure to check with official company websites or job portals, or even contact recruiters directly to confirm the legitimacy of offers beforehand.
To those who are currently looking for a job, we wish you all the best.
