Notice on Fraudulent Job Offers

What is Recruitment Fraud?

Recruitment fraud is a sophisticated scam offering fake job opportunities to job seekers. This type of fraud can be carried out through false websites, fake e-mails claiming to be from the company, or phony social media profiles. The fraudsters often request recipients to provide personal information and to make payments as part of their fake recruiting process.

Cargill’s Commitment to Privacy

We are aware that job postings may have been made by people who claim to be recruiters for Cargill, even using Cargill employee names, but who are not affiliated with Cargill. We have also been made aware that unauthorized individuals may have posed as Cargill recruiters, made contact about job opportunities, and extended job offers via text message, instant message or chat rooms. These job postings and offers are not authorized by Cargill. Cargill is not responsible for fraudulent offers or requests for personal information.

How to Protect Yourself from Recruitment Fraud

Positions posted on the Cargill.com/Careers site are legitimate. 

Recruiters who ask candidates to submit unusual personal information like bank statements or utility bills, to pay a fee in order to be considered for a job, or to pay "start-up expenses" after being hired are not affiliated with Cargill. Cargill does not use private messaging tools such as Google Hangouts, Gmail, Facebook, Facebook Messenger, or other similar tools to extend job offers.

If you find a Cargill posting on a site other than our careers site, verify its legitimacy before applying by visiting the Careers section of our site and searching for the requisition number.

If you believe you have been a victim of a fraudulent offer, please contact us.  Thank you for your interest in working at Cargill.
