Be Aware of Recruitment Fraud
In Bangladesh, there has been several cases of recruitment fraud. Individuals are contacting job seekers claiming to represent H&M, offering them roles and then inevitably asking for payments for securing the role. Please note that H&M will never ask for payment at any stage in the recruitment process. All our job openings are posted on our official LinkedIn page and website. If anyone applied for a position or received a notice for a position at H&M and it does not appear on our website, please disregard it. We recommend that no one should respond to unsolicited offers of employment or offers that do not appear on the official website of H&M.
Warning signs of potentially fraudulent activity:
- Requests for money transfers are one of the major signs of potentially fraudulent activity. H&M doesn’t require applicants to submit money for processing or any other expenses
- Applicants are asked to participate in an “interview” over phone and select immediately after the conversation. H&M does not make any job offers without meeting the candidates. Recruitment in H&M is carried out through a well-established selection procedure comprising 2-3 rounds of interview with the candidate by inviting in our office premises or through video interview request from our official domain (@hm.com)
- Receipt of communications from domain names not affiliated with H&M. The H&M policy for email communications requires the sole use of “@hm.com”. Emails with a domain name not affiliated with H&M, should be disregarded
- Insistence on urgency for you to act on the correspondence received within very short time frames should cause concern and may indicate potentially fraudulent activity. H&M takes at least 2 weeks to process the whole recruitment through proper evaluation
Legitimate information regarding career opportunities with H&M can always be found on our Website or on LinkedIn page. If you have any concerns, see suspicious job advertisements, or receive suspicious communications that refer H&M, please disregard it.
Be aware and share to stop fraudulent activity. We thank you for your interest in H&M.
