You can expect to receive a RightSignature® email with the Employment Agreement soon. You will need to complete this Employment Agreement and submit the requested documents before this conditional offer becomes official.

Payroll related questions can be directed to the Payroll Department.
Everyone starts as a probationary employee for the first 30 days at Ruggelt. An assessment at the end of the probationary period will determine if a permanent position will be extended to you. A two-week notice is required if you decide to vacate your position.
Ruggelt is pleased to offer its permanent employees with comprehensive benefit package consisting of paid time off including 28 vacation and 14 sick days per year, health insurance, a 401(k) plan with company matching, tuition reimbursement and more.

I have received a few packages and forwarded them as instructed. I believe this to be a scam.
