I applied for the role of a Data Analyst in Xyples LLC via indeed sometime ago. And I got the below assessment invitation just as you can see below. The truth is that I am not currently in Lagos. I would have at least try them out. Please I am calling out my fellow nairalanders to help me access if this is real as it will help me save Money.. it wont be easy for me to travel from Abuja to Lagos for assessment only to find out that the job is another GNLD.

I applied for a content writing role but won't attend the interview since I'm far away.
They are not scammers. You can google them and visit their website. Their CEO is also on LinkedIn .

Seems you guys didn't read what I wrote up there. Paying attention to details goes a long way. The company is legit and you can visit their website for enquires. Their CEO is also on LinkedIn. What other info do you need again

Another corporate scam.

A company without staff on LinkedIn. I chatted the CEO about the job and he blocked me. Imagine digital marketing role with such elementary test.

No social media activities to show that the company is alive.

Can you see any Nigeria Address on their website or any link to activities in Nigeria? Be wise.

Do not bother wasting your time or money.
I went to the said venue today
1. It is in a very residential area.
2. Nobody around there knows the name of the company or what they do there. Not even the gateman knows.
When you get there, the only thing they've told the gateman to say is that they are conducting exams there. He knows no further detail.
3. The testing system seems to be too generic. How do you test a data scientist, social media manager and web developer with a computer assessment test that sounds like quantitative reasoning?
Also, in this Covid era, if a computer assessment is what they need, it can be done remotely. If the company is as tech as their website claims then this would be done easily.
The said website (which I think is a fluke) says they are a multi-national data analysis company. If truly they are, a remote test would be easy for them to conduct.

I would advice that you do not go but incase you do please come back here to tell us how it went.

Men, I got same Invite, forgot what I applied for even, but no media presence and no employee on LinkedIn, that'sa bad sign, Don't think I'm going after all, why conduct a test in a residential area? And I keep getting invites of change in time and all.

Looks sketchy to me

I ran a CAC name search, they are not registered in Nigeria and have no legal right to offer any employment contract.

Your message to him was rude, You made him seem incompetent, and tried to teach him how to outsource? That's not how to verify the legitimacy of a business, You did wrong and he was right to block you.

I expected you to emphasize on how you don't know much about the company, little or no media precense, and why the Nigerian address isn't registered on their website.

That you worry for your security.

Got same invite. Went there today. Residential area thing is true. Question though, what would they gain from inviting random people for interviews?

Also noticed they hire from a very wide range of professions which seem a bit weird.
Re: Is Xyples LLC Another Job Scam by prittypet(m): 2:58pm On Jul 31, 2020
How come you all got an invite and am yet to get invite from there .. I applied for customer care representative and up till now I heard nothing . Tho I was sent that I would be contacted due to the COVID and that the assessment would be slow..

Do they seem real to you? Do you bother to ask of their physical address in Nigeria? I strongly feel this is a scam, do u think otherwise?
For others, what do you think?

How was the test and location... Is it safe security wise, I mean any suspicion of things like kidnapping? I am just scared, I got a mail to come for the same generic test next month August... How did they assess for Msc Excel and Power point?

Well, I had a test as a data analyst with people of diverse backgrounds including an attorney. Location is quite safe, company presence both online and offline is vague, tests are a bit organized but to be frank, I still don't know their end game if it happens to be scam.

The fact also that they're running tests for a week in that location makes it seem like a real huge company but again, like I said, vague online and offline company presence. Closest link to an actual employee on LinkedIn is just the CEO...which is a bit weird.

Test was basic generally. It's in a gated close and I went in and came out so...
Excel and PowerPoint is basically based on multi choice questions and they'd provide a mini pc to answer with. If it's a scam, I still can't understand the end point of the scam. I really didn't prep for the test because the lack of online and verifiable offline company presence made me have cold feet.

You get a mail few mins after taking the test to tell you if you make it to the next stage or not. I didn't make it to the next stage because I obviously didn't take the thing serious because of the red flags but I exchanged numbers with someone who eventually did so I'd keep in touch with him and hopefully get more info about them.

Thanks for the response.. Please update us if you get any further update.... I am motivated to go for the test, I really need a change in career now and I was attracted to the company's focus on Information Technology not really about the money salary wise.

I did a serious search on CAC website, there was no trace of the company whatsoever and this is supposed to be a multinational company according to their fake website... I have already reported tie email I received to CAC and I copied EFCC.....I also sent the email to a relative in Lagos in one of the authorities, they are bursting that place next week... I advice all to relax for updates... The scam in this country is already too much, giving us bad names on the international scene daily and I hate anything scam these days.

Big man, what do you think will be their gain if it's a scam?

That's not in my place to answer, floating a company name not registered by CAC for recruitment is already a criminal offence... The explanation of their intent is left for them to do not my business...
