Notice on Recruitment Fraud

NOTICE ON RECRUITMENT FRAUD

Recruitment fraud 

Recruitment fraud is a sophisticated fraud involving the offer of fictitious job opportunities. This kind of fraud is normally done through unsolicited emails, online recruitment services (sometimes even legitimate platforms such as LinkedIn), bogus websites and even text messages claiming to be from Allstate. The aim of the fraud is typically to obtain personal information or money. Recruitment scams may involve offering fictitious job opportunities and requesting personal information and payments to process false applications.  

Allstate is aware that both individuals and organizations have falsely claimed to recruit on behalf of Allstate. We take recruitment fraud very seriously and provide this information to help you learn how to identify and report recruitment fraud.

We recommend that you do not respond to unsolicited offers of employment from people claiming to work for, or be affiliated with, Allstate. Allstate will not request personal information before you have first applied on our career site. Only applicants that have filled out the official application on our career site can be hired. 

Identifying Recruitment Fraud

Perpetrators often ask recipients to complete fake recruitment documents, such as job applications, bank statements and/or visa/work permit forms.

It is important to look for these key warning signs:

  • Requests for personal information, such as passport details, credit card information, and banking information.
  • Requests to contact other companies/individuals that you’re connected to (e.g., lawyers, bank officials, travel agencies, credit card information, courier companies, visa/immigration processing agencies).
  • Requests for payment of a fee to process or assist with a job application.
  • An offer to pay a percentage of a fee requested if the candidate pays the remaining amount.
  • An urgent request for the applicant to take action on the correspondence or offer.

What Veteran and Military Recruiting Mean to Allstate

Happy Veteran’s Day from Allstate! Allstate STEM and Innovation Recruiting Manager and Veteran, Max, shared his career journey and what military recruiting at Allstate means to him.

Max is a former Field Artillery officer within the US Army. He left the Army in 2016 as a Captain and Company Commander. He deployed to Afghanistan in 2013, where he was awarded the Bronze Star.

“My career at Allstate is the first job I have had that is not connected to the military, because recruiting veteran talent at corporations is something that is really important to me. In my pervious jobs, I managed military and veteran recruiting programs for companies.

It’s encouraging to see that Allstate doesn’t have a dedicated military recruiter, because all recruiters own the military recruiting strategy. It’s on all of us to hire veterans, and it is a collective value as a department. At Allstate, we view everyone as a candidate first regardless of prior experience. Allstate does a great job of recognizing core competencies, how veterans’ skills will translate and understanding past experience doesn’t have to be directly related. We understand the veteran workforce and what it brings to the table.

When I came to Allstate, I wanted to make sure I was doing something that I found interesting, was working at a company that aligned with my personal values and had a team that is a great fit for me. I remember on my second day at Allstate, my department’s administrator sent me a deck with all of the veterans in the department and asked me to add my information. It was so nice to see the sense of community just within my own department. I immediately wanted to make sure everyone felt like they had the right amount of support and made myself available to get to know everyone. Allstate really gave me the ability to find other veterans in the department right away.

Outside of my department, I am the executive sponsor for Allstate Veteran’s Employee Resource Group (ERG) in our Irving, Texas office. This ERG helps veterans establish a new sense of comradery, pair people in a mentor program and learn about corporate America. Allstate really pays so much attention to our people. I try to encourage veterans to get involved in other ERGs when they join Allstate so they can continue to grow their community here.

Overall my time in the military paired with my time in a corporate setting, and especially at Allstate, has allowed me to pursue my passion of helping people find meaningful jobs. When I left the military, I was told what type of jobs should go into and didn’t realize everything I was qualified for. I hope to help other veterans realize how far they can take their career and what opportunities are available to them in the corporate world.”
