15. A company has asked me to pay to be hired. What should I do?


If a company has asked you to pay a fee to be hired or to start your job (equipment etc), then it is most likely a scam. We suggest you don’t send money to any company to be hired. If you receive a suspicious contact, please alert us at

The only time you are asked to pay within Smartr is if you would like to enjoy Smartr premium features or partner services like upskilling classes. If you are in doubt, please contact our support team before sending any payment.
