Random woman offered me a job in a store? Scam?
There are scam busting sites with online lists of the names scammers use, their fake job offes, their email addresses, stock copy/paste emails, paid-for-in-cash cell phone numbers, stolen pictures and fake websites they use. You could start your search and post/ask at such sites. Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, website addresses, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even partial sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer.

Most companies do not do this, the only exception may be a modeling agency or a film studio looking for specific 'extras' for a project, but they would not hound you. If she didn't even say what kind of work it was, just ignore her.

Could be a scam, could be just a sales gig - sales people can be pretty direct and blunt in getting contacts. Feel free to ask more questions if you'd like, but don't commit to anything you're uncomfortable with and certainly don't give out ID theft information like SSN.
