I am from India. I have worked in Company A and Company B, planning to move on to Company C. Now Company C will be starting the background verification very soon. Company C asked me for the manager details and HR details (i.e. name, contact # and Company Email Id) of the previous two employers.
Below are the problems I can see, don't know how to overcome them:
1) Company A does not exists any more. I came to know this few days back. I have got all the relevant documents for my employment with Company A but I am not sure about the manager and HR details; even I don't remember their names. How to tackle this situation?
2) Company B is a well renowned MNC but I don't have good terms with my reporting manager, he is angry since I decided to put my paper. Then what to do in this case for providing the manager details?
Best policy would be to be upfront with Company C and tell them what you are telling us.
but I am not sure about the manager and HR details; even I don't remember their names.
HR I can understand. But not remembering your manager's name is a bit hard to believe.
It shouldn't matter if your ex manager is angry. The background verification process is to ensure you really did what all things you claimed in the documentation you provided Company C. As long as you haven't lied or provided misleading/false information, you should be OK
