Do most employers conduct reference checks BEFORE they verbally offer a job to an applicant?
I asked my older sister, whom is a HR Recruiter, and I also asked an HR person from another company. Both of them said that, in regards to the companies they work for, they do background checks, employment verifications, reference checks, etc. only after a verbally offer for a job has been made to an applicant.

Normal. Checks can be conducted after a job offer, conditional on references. If references are poor, job offer can be withdrawn. Why can't you listen to your sister?
