Is it legal for companies to lie on their job postings?
I applied for a job one time. The posting said it was an engineering job working in the lab. When I got the interview, the guy said it was a customer service job where I would be stuck on the phone all day. I totally ran away from it. Another job I quit from was basically an IT Help Desk job. Now they are posting the job where you do system administration tasks and once in a while, you would support internal customer/employees...when actually, the job is to only support internal employees by being on the phones all day with rarely any System Administration tasks. Can they lie like that?
