My father applied for a carpenter position in Miami, FL, for major ship construction company. He cannot speak english at all and send the resume in italian, he got a reply a few days later by someone from the HR (email was automatically translated into Italian) and the HR person said his resume was impressive and they were interested, they sent instructions regarding the documents they needed to get him a working visa in the US. He replied simply by saying he was interested in the job and he wanted to know more, and they replied by sending him a signed employment contract!
I have read it twice, it looks legit, it's a 3 years contract paid 5600 usd per month, with a 30 day test period where the company will pay the flight tickets, accomodation, and any other expenses.
I thought it was a scam at first, but the company exists, it's a big one, he does not have to pay anything except for the visa application in Italy (small amount), nobody interviewed him or called him, it's so weird to me!
I am considering taking an unpaid 30 days leave from my job to go with him since he would not go by himself, since it could be a chance to move the whole family later on if they confirm the contract after the first month of work.
What do you think about all of this? I don't even know if this is the right place but it's happening all so quickly, he should be there in about 35 days and it takes at least a couple of weeks to get a visa.
