Job Candidates: Beware Recruitment scams

Recruitment scams are increasingly being carried out online through false job advertisements, job websites (Facebook), or through unsolicited emails, posing as legitimate companies such as Descartes.

Here are some guidelines for our applicants who are interested in employment with Descartes:

The Descartes recruitment team will always:

  • Communicate with you from an email address ending in “” and will not use any other email domain for recruiting related contacts.
  • Post all open positions on our career’s website.
  • Conduct multiple in person interviews (video substitute during COVID) prior to extending offers of employment. If you did not go through this process, please be on alert for fraudulent activity.
  • Never request payments of any kind or require you to purchase any materials or tools in order for applicants to secure a job.

Any suspicious posts should be reported to Facebook directly with their built-in tools and optionally can be reported to [email protected] and include the suspicious content as an attachment.

Descartes treats fraudulent matters seriously. By publishing this information and investigating the reports received, we aim to try to prevent scammers from carrying out fraudulent activity against individuals who are legitimately interested in joining Descartes.
