My LinkedIn at the moment says im open to internships and I was suggested to apply at GAOTek Inc. and so I did. (I dont expect to get in anything as im just starting University in the fall) There seems to be some question to whether its a real company or not. Has anyone ever heard of it? All the positions require 0-5 years of experience and is done remotely.

Company: GAOTek Inc.

Did you search for them? What did that search turn up? Why do you have doubts whether this is a legitimate company?

Well when i searched them on google, normally a company will have info set up like their phone number, website, founder, etc. This company only had a location which is in ontario, Canada. But then the website says their in New York. Theres also a bunch of review that all look the same on glassdoor.ca

Their website states that they have two offices: one in New York, and the other in Ontario.

I don't know anything about the company, but I did notice that they are selling products on Amazon Canada - mostly scientific/industrial measurement equipment.

Ive seen that too and normally i would just assume its a company just starting up, which is not the case according to their site.

Heres a snippet of their LinkedIn page:

GG: please don't edit old posts which have been replied to; that makes the answers look confusing. I have reverted the edits.

I would normally ask you to post the changes as a new post, but we also have a policy of not discussing named companies on this forum. You would appear to have decided not to apply to GAOTek Inc.; I shall ask you to leave it at that.
