I think the company is genuine based on company search on Google, and the type of recruiting process. But can't say with all certainty. Let's see how it will pan out, though. (Even though I am almost sure of not moving to the next stage, my vid interview was horrible. Didn't even use up to 30 seconds )

My consign is that, they might be yahoo boys looking to gather people's video for some useless purpose.

You're right.
Now I'm not sure if I should do it.
Re: Is This Company Genuine? by veteran001: 11:27pm On Jul 08
The company appears to be genuine in a way. It is actually "SoFI" that is doing the hiring as shown on Glassdoor. However, somehow on Glassdoor, when you click apply (not the "easy apply", there are two options), you get redirected to Getsofi. Don't know, but the fact that SoFi, a public listed company in the US posted it makes me slightly hopeful.

The pay though....great!!! I must say..

Yea, it is different from sofi.com which is actually genuine. However, it's the same Sofi that posted a link to getsofi.com in their Glassdoor profile..

have you heard from them since completing your video interview?

I don't think I'll do the video, they should have requested for one on one video interview or something. This is Nigeria and scammers have different format.

It's a very very long test, the questions are mostly quantitative and some abstract. It's just one of those test that test your logic and how well you can reason.

There is no time limit, so you can take your time to reason before choosing an option.

If you want to know what they will do with your data, give it to them,

When you hear tomorrow that , someone with your name and a plastic surgery of your face goes and assassinate a world president like in Haiti, then you will know more about data privacy
