Security Notice: Fake Job Postings
March 27, 2020
Paychex security personnel have received reports of fake job postings, where individuals are contacted by others claiming to represent Paychex with career opportunities, through social media (Facebook), text messages, or even mailed letters.
Although Paychex does employ talent acquisition professionals and contracted recruiters, Paychex does not offer work-from-home positions that involve check printing or payment processing. While you may have noticed that we’ve moved 95% of our staff to work from home during the COVID-19 outbreak, this change is not reflected in our online job postings.
The following should be considered suspicious:
- The job posting is sent to you via unsolicited text message
- A job offer to work from home, printing or processing checks
- You're asked to purchase equipment like check printers, or check paper
- You're asked to provide your mailing address so further instructions can be sent for check processing
- You're told you’ll be paid later and/or via MoneyGram, Western Union, or money order
- The offer is coming from someone with a non-Paychex email address who claims to be an employee
If you see a suspicious posting or aren't sure about a claim, contact our social media team and we'll investigate. For a list of current job opportunities with Paychex, visit our Careers at Paychex website.
