Frequently Asked Questions

You’ll know you’re being contacted by a real representative of TTEC when:
  • You receive an email from a @ttec.com or @teletech.com email address
  • You are interviewed before you are sent an offer letter
  • You will find the real job on our website at TTECjobs.com (or TeleTechJobs.com)
TTEC will never:
  • Ask you to transfer or wire money
  • Ask you to pay for recruitment-related expenses
  • Ask you to interview in Google Hangouts or other online public domains
  • Send you an email from any address that doesn't have @ttec.com or @teletech.com in the domain name
  • Send an unsolicited job offer - asking you for your driver's license, social security number or bank account information

Note: for certain at home or remote jobs you may be required to have your own computer or other at home equipment for use in your job. This is common practice for the work at home field. We never require you to purchase anything from TTEC.
Online job search engine FlexJobs.com recommends asking yourself a few questions when responding to an online job opportunity:
  • Is the hiring company’s name listed in the job listing?
  • Do you need to pay to get the job, buy supplies, or invest in the company?
  • Does the job listing sound too good to be true?
  • Does the company ask you to engage in a transaction on their behalf as a requirement for getting the job?
  • Does the language used in the posting sound odd or strangely written?
  • Does the name, email, or website of the recruiter or job posting match up the actual company’s info?
  • Do you have a bad gut feeling?
If you feel you’ve been deceived, we first recommend that you share this with your local law enforcement agency. Then, please do let us know by reporting the incident here and we will do our best to investigate and shut down the perpetrator so that others do not suffer the same fate. And remember, we value every applicant who decides they'd like to work with us at TTEC.
