It has come to our attention that someone has been impersonating the Arc Oregon and offering work-from-home positions. This is a scam. We are not currently hiring and we never recruit using direct emails to potential employees. If you receive an email purporting to be from The Arc Oregon and offering such a position, please ignore it. You can learn more about fake check scams and report them here.
