Recruiting fraud is a serious issue facing jobseekers. Please be aware that Vistar Media would never require personal information (such as bank account information) during the interview process. Should an employee from Vistar Media reach out to you, that communication will come from an @vistarmedia.com email address. During a typical interview process, you will have several phone, video, and/or in-person interviews with multiple Vistar Media employees before a hiring decision is made. We do not require payment from applicants for training or other costs incurred, nor do we offer compensation before hiring.
