athenahealth has been made aware of unauthorized career opportunities offered by individuals posing as representatives of larger U.S. companies, including athenahealth. The fictitious jobs are advertised on employment-search websites, such as Indeed.com and Craigslist.com, and prospective employees are required to share their personal and financial information (e.g. credit card, bank information), provide copies of their government-issued identification, and/or send money for application fees, processing charges or work permits.
The victims who are told they are "hired" are often instructed to deposit a check (which is later returned as fraudulent) into their own account and to forward overpayment to individuals - usually via wire transfer.
Important information for job seekers:
- athenahealth has a formal application process and we do not request you to interview on a Google Hangout or via text messaging.
- athenahealth will never request money for the opportunity to apply or work for athenahealth.
- athenathealth does not require completion of tax forms, bank account or credit card information as part of the recruiting process.
