Hi,

I need some help for background check in [Company A].

Normally what are the questions will the [Company A] 3rd party person ask on wrost case.

In my case i have worked in 2 companies. But i told [Company A] that I have worked only in 1 company which is latest (2nd one)and provided the details for the same in resume and BGC form. rest all are good.

my question is: will the agency person come and ask about how i joined the latest with what experience and all

Normally what they will ask if they visit the company. please help me out.

We do not allow company specific discussions here at the ranch. Please review our guidelines.

Is there any reason you did not provide details about the first company ?

During my last background check, they looked at my last three companies, looked at my college, looked at all the local crime databases, federal crime registries, and even (not sure) on my financial background. And the information that they got seems to be how much the individual companies were willing to provide.

This is all outsourced these days. There are company that specialize in this stuff. So, I wouldn't be surprise if it should be the same.


To answer your question... obviously, they can only target the companies that you mentioned. But they do verify dates, so if you didn't provide a company, then you'll have a gap to deal with.

My last background check went back 10 years. (It was a number of years ago so 10 years included college.) I had to account for any gaps by providing the name of someone who could vouch that I was "unemployed" then. I gave my mother seeing how I was a college student rather than an unemployed worker. It was a government background check so I imagine they might have checked with the IRS to validate what I gave against my taxes.

Hi Henry,

The gap i have mentioned is not too big. I said i was unemployed that time. Just want to know if someone comes here about the dates,designation,salary etc..that is fine but will they get into more deep checking with what details i have joined here etc..any chance...?

Not sure what you are asking. Are you asking to find out if companies that you don't put down will be researched on? ... I don't see how, but I guess anything is possible.

I'm curious too, why would you want to omit experience?

Like many things, the answer is "it depends." For a government background check, it would likely come out. For just researching past companies, it wouldn't as far as I know.
