I got a job offer from Rentageek.com and their site looks fishy. Have any of you heard of them. Their archives are a year old, no newsletters. They want me to take a test at home from my pc tonight.

Their domain has been registered since 1996 which is a good sign. Have you tried ringing the phone number on their website?

It doesn't look dodgy to me :) What job role are you applying for?

Most of those types of places want you to do repair work for them. You have to find out the rate they pay (fixed price?) and also mileage? Plus, find out their payment terms. Sometimes they are 30 day pay or whatever.

Alot of places like that are pretty shaddy when it comes to paying on time and you need to document everything. But I would defiently call them prior to doing any work and that way you get a better feel for them.
