A Warning About Recruitment Scams
Thank you for considering Weyerhaeuser as your place of employment.
We believe attracting great talent to our company is essential to achieving our vision of working to be the world’s premier timber, land, and forest products company. However, our status as a company, and the status of many other Fortune 500 companies, is occasionally used by scammers who try to defraud job seekers of money or their personal information.
The most common scam targets job seekers and can involve interviews, job offers, mailed checks and requests for money. The initial correspondence begins when someone claiming to be a Weyerhaeuser employee or executive – and using the name of either an actual Weyerhaeuser executive or of a person who does not work for our company - claims that Weyerhaeuser has a job opening.
Every open position at Weyerhaeuser is listed on our external career site, which you can access anytime from wy.com/careers. While other job aggregators on the Internet may post our open positions, you can consider our career section the source of record for available jobs at Weyerhaeuser and we encourage you to check the validity of any position for which you are contacted.
You should be suspicious if you’re contacted about an open position that goes against any of the following practices:
- We never communicate via free email providers like Gmail or Yahoo. All recruiting communication from Weyerhaeuser will come from contacts who have a weyerhaeuser.com email address.
- We do not interview or provide offer letters through Google Hangout.
- It’s rare that a senior management team leader is directly involved with the recruiting process.
- We never ask for banking information or a Social Security Number during the recruiting process.
- We would never ask you to work from your own computer, download software programs without the blessing of our IT department, and/or pay for the software programs that we are asking you to utilize.
If you’ve received a Weyerhaeuser job offer that you suspect may not be legitimate, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have been victimized by this scam, you can report it through the Better Business Bureau’s Scam Tracker or the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center.
