No legitimate employer charges you for training IMHO. Training a new salesperson is part of the cost of doing business. If they're asking you to pay for your training, what is the likelihood that they are gong to do other shady things. Considering the costs of hiring a new employee, like setting up their health insurance, pension plans, etc.... the cost of training an employee is relatively small, especially if the training is necessary for them to function well in their position.

Run while you can.

Hopefully, you haven't given this company your information, like social security number yet. Posing as an employer is a pretty common scheme for identity thieves, since the information needed to apply for credit is often the same as what is given when applying for a job.

To give you an example, when I was hired to work in Washington, DC about twelve years ago, the company that hired me paid my moving expenses, put me up in a hotel for a month while I was looking for a house, hired a realtor to help me find a house, paid the points on my buying a house, and paid for my training.
As CD said, where is the company's commitment to you as their prospective employee. Why are they not investing in you.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
