How do you tell if a staffing recruiter is legit?
My husband went to an interview today and it was for a staffing agency. They said they would help him get the job that the employer has to offer. They say they are direct to hire. However, if my husband gets offered a job and accepts the job we have to pay $325.00 for their services. Yesterday while listening to them on the phone they said they don't charge anything and it's illegal to do so. I am really confused and I feel this is a scam.

If your family have to pay, it's a scam.

A legit staffing agency will never charge candidates. They make there money from charging the hiring company. Usually a percentage of your salary.

If you only have to pay upon getting a job, they're probably legit. In many cases the company who is hiring pays the fee but not in all cases. If they ask for money up front, before you actually get hired, it's a scam.
