Background checks

Post by DD on Thu Jan 26, 2012 12:55 pm

Hello everyone,

When employers conduct background checks, they usually consist of crimininal and unfortunately, sometimes credit checks, which is complete BS! Not the criminal check, just the credit check is BS.

My question for anyone is if you worked for a little while, say two years, in a field not relevant to the position that you are applying for and you don't have that info on your resume/application, can an employer have any means of finding out about that position?

The reason I ask is that I worked in retail for a short time, but that info is not on my resume, as I feel it is not relevant and there were some issues as to why I am not working there any more.
I would think that an employer would only be able to check on employers that are listed....any insight on this?

Let me know and thanks!

I have seen my backgroud check reports and they have address that i have lived at, they dont list places i have worked at.....

1) i am left with the impression that some of these mom and pop type "background check" companies are simply using public website (many county and municipalities have them) which DONT list soc sec numbers to get their info (that would account for the same name screw ups some people get...

2) i have seen a website (at least one) that claims to be able to access
past places of employment...cost about $40....

3) I delivered pizza for quite a while and i have been told to leave that off as non revelent although it shows an ability to handle money and customer relations...

There are plenty of those around. They call them people search sites. But as far as I know they mostly focus on your legal history.
Not sure they also cover employment history as well.

The IRS will know for W-2 and Social Security. The State Unemployment Office will know if it is W-2. if it is out of state you must tell them. Generally, if you don't list it the employer doesn't know. I don't list every Contract Assignment. Some are only for a day or few days. Never questioned, they know there will be job gaps.
