      Hiring Scams

      In order to be considered for a job at Otabo, you must be in communication with an employee owning an otabo.com email address and have been interviewed in person. If you receive emails regarding job opportunities from someone who is not an Otabo employee or from an email address without an otabo.com domain, if you interviewed over the phone or chat, or have been offered a job without interviewing at an Otabo location, it is a scam.
