Singaporean recruitment agency MCI Career Services has confirmed that a viral job posting about four-day work week positions that offer up to a RM10,000 monthly gross salary for jobs in Changi Airport is real

In an email response to SAYS, today, 18 August, the Bukit Batok Crescent-headquartered company said there is a misconception about a job posting that the company is running recruitment for, stating that the job offerings are not a scam.

"We understand that there have been recent news coverages on human trafficking scams, in which job applicants were offered high wages for various positions overseas through social media job postings, only to have their passports seized by human trafficking ring operators upon their arrival," it said in a statement posted on its Facebook last night, 17 August.

"However, we do not know why (a Singapore news outlet) has used MCI's authentic job posting without any context or consent in this Facebook post. We have reached out to (the news outlet) for more information."

According to the statement, the vacancy post was a paid job advertisement published on Malaysian Chinese daily China Press for the purpose of its overseas recruitment drive in Johor

"[It] will be held this coming Friday, 19 August 2022. We have made arrangements for interested job applicants to attend a walk-in interview at the exhibition hall in Holiday Inn Hotel, Emerald Level 10, Johor Bahru," it explained.

"In regards to the job position advertised, the working location is at Changi Airport, however, we would like to clarify that our client (who shall not be named) is not Changi Airport Group."

Previously, many netizens suspected that the job posting was fake due to its high salary and the one-day less work week arrangement

Singapore's Chinese newspaper Shin Min Daily uploaded the vacancy post on Facebook and received over 300 comments.

The post credited China Press for the job posting but many netizens commented that the job offer looked too good to be true.

Several Facebook users made comments such as "false news", "scam, not real", "I don't believe", "see how many [will] be scammed?" in the comments section of the post.

SAYS then reached out to MCI Career Services for clarification and received a response this morning.

The opening positions are sales assistants and customer service specialists.
