Recruitment Fraud Warning

Unauthorized individuals claiming to be Tetra Tech employees are extending false employment offers to steal money and personal information from job seekers. These scams use legitimate job boards and social media platforms and may use an unauthorized Tetra Tech logo, employee name, and title. The perpetrators will require an initial investment, such as a payment for work visa, or will send a check that allows them to gain access to the job seeker’s account after the check is deposited.

Tetra Tech takes this matter seriously. By raising awareness, we hope to prevent job seekers falling victim to these scams. Do not engage if you believe a communication is fraudulent.

Tetra Tech will never request money or credit card information for an applicant to secure a job as an employee or a contractor. Tetra Tech also does not require individuals to release personal data—such as an address, social security number, tax documents, or banking information—early in the interview process. Beware of schemes that require the job seeker to create an online account, potentially to collect personal information using a counterfeit website.

Tetra Tech representatives communicate and transmit job offers using email addresses that end with Tetra Tech does not conduct job interviews through texting or platforms such as Google Hangouts and usually will conduct a formal job interview prior to extending an offer.
