Unauthorized individuals and organizations sometimes fraudulently use the DynCorp International brand in an attempt to solicit fees from potential job seekers, promising placement in a position with DI or its family of companies. If you are looking to join the DI team, please read below and keep this information handy when pursuing a position with DI.
Signs of a Recruiting Scam
Scammers advertise jobs just as legitimate employers would through job boards and other advertisements, but there are important signs to look for in identifying a posting that may be falsified.
- Check the email address origin. DynCorp International recruiters, team members and personnel should have an email address ending in @dyn-intl.com. Any point of contact that does not have that email address origin is not a part of the DI recruiting team. Scammers will try to make very similar email address domains, so make sure to check that it is only from a @dyn-intl.com address.
- Requests for placement fees to expedite the hiring process. If you are contacted by anyone offering employment with DynCorp International, you should never be asked to pay a fee for recruiting.
- A communication requests money in exchange for guaranteed employment. Any communication requesting any amount of money in exchange for employment with DI is fraudulent. These communications do not originate from DI and are not associated with the recruitment process. DI and its family of companies never charges candidates fees or payments of any kind in order to secure employment.
- A communication requests payment as a fee for certification, training materials or other work-related expenses. DI does not require payment for any materials as part of its recruiting process.
- Requests for tax, bank account or credit card information. DI recruiters do not require the completion of tax forms such as a W-4, bank account or credit card information as part of the recruiting process. As a precaution, we recommend you do not disclose personal or financial details to anyone as a response to an unsolicited email request.
- Offers work at home opportunities. DI does not currently offer any work at home opportunities.
