About Bechtel

Alert! Fraudlent Job Offers

Bechtel has received reports about individuals receiving fraudulent job confirmation letters via email and mail, and unsolicited job postings, emails, and Facebook conversations claiming to offer employment by Bechtel for positions that do not exist.  Some of these emails are sent from or and purportedly identify various Bechtel directors, managers, or others as the senders. Some of the fraudulent job offers have also included phone numbers, and potential applicants have been encouraged to call in pursuit of job opportunities. These emails and other materials solicit personal information and sometimes money.
