How do I know the difference between a scam or legitimate company?

I interviewed with a company over hangouts today.  At the end of the interview, they accepted my hired me and messaged: 

"The pay is $35 per hour and training is $18 per hour You will receive your pay weekly, Friday of the week via Direct deposit ,check or Paypal Depending on which you prefer. What payment option do you prefer?" "we will send you a check to buy working supplies"  

then, I told them "OK. Well, I prefer to go through PPH. Since I have signed the payment acknowledgment through them"   

They replied "I have told you that you will get paid through people per hour, but the company will send you a check to purchase your working materials okay"

Is it normal that a company will send money for supplies?
