It has come to our attention that fraudulent recruitment scams are being conducted by individuals or organizations claiming to represent Metro Inc. or its subsidiaries such as Food Basics. This type of fraud tends to occur through online services including fake websites, online job boards, or through unsolicited emails. The aim of the fraud is to mislead applicants via false employment applications to Metro Inc., with the intention of obtaining their personal information and obtaining their money.
Please note that ALL of our job openings are posted on our careers website at careers.metro.ca. If you applied for a position or received a notice for a position at Metro and it does not appear on our website, please disregard it. We recommend that you do not respond to unsolicited offers of employment or offers that do not appear on the official website of Metro Inc.
Warning Signs of Potentially Fraudulent Activity
METRO does NOT charge any fees to submit a job application to our company, nor do we ask for any payment to obtain a work permit when an offer is made. No personal documents apart from your résumé is required. Furthermore, METRO does not make any job offers without first meeting the candidates.
Legitimate information regarding career opportunities with METRO can be found on our website at careers.metro.ca. If you have any concerns, see suspicious job advertisements, or receive suspicious communications that reference METRO, please do your due diligence before responding or sharing any of your information. One recommended approach is to contact members of METRO on LinkedIn that appear to be in HR to confirm whether the email or opportunity shared with you was indeed legitimate.
We advise you to contact the police, your bank, or credit agencies, if you believe you have been the victim of fraudulent activity, particularly if you have provided personal information, or banking information.
We thank you for your interest in METRO.
