Beware of jobs posted on fitnessjobs.com.

There are a lot of scams on there. I heard about content writer jobs at NHE from my gym and found their ad on fitnessjobs.com but it's not a real NHE content writer job advertisement!! People at NHE say they don't have a fitnessjobs.com account and they do not use these guys services. The fake jobs application asks for your social security number (so that they can verify that you are at least 18 years old???) There's a section on the application that asks for your mother's maiden name too! The huge red flag is the lower part of the application form that asks for your bank account info so that they can wire transfer your paycheck. DON'T DO IT!

Don't fill out this application at all! NHE doesn't have application forms, you have to submit a resume and even fill out a job profile. Also, the email address on the fake NHE application that you get is from a Hotmail account! This is one of the oldest phishing scams online and at a glance looks legitimate, but if you think about it, you soon realize it's a scam.
I've researched this and found others who have been fooled too. If you want a NHE job, only go trough the NHE website; www.nhecertification.com . If you get an email from NHE, the email addresses and correspondence should all encompass the NHE website and the phone number should be NHE's and not some weird home phone answering machine with a guy with a Chinese accent and not some obscure email account from hotmail either.

NHE already knows about this...

AUTHOR: Tim C. - (United States of America)

I didn't see the fake NHE ads on the fitnessjobs.com site. I did see the warning about fake ads on the NHE site. Spreading the word, fast, probably made the scammers rethink using NHE. It would be pretty hard to mistake a fake for the actual NHE company because NHE has such a strict recruitment process, it's near impossible to fake it with a one-page PDF application form, but for what its worth they aren't there anymore. Now I guess we should beware of fake NASM ads?

NHE content writer scam

AUTHOR: Manny - (USA)

I complained to NHE too and they said they have contacted the management at fitnessjobs.com. The fake ads should be gone now. I only have my resume posted on Careerbuilder.com. I don't really trust my personal information on any other job search website, besides Monster.com.
