My husband is applying for a job with the county school system and they are asking for WRITTEN verification of the jobs he has held for the past 25 years, and it's up to him to get it, and his salary is dependent on such verification.
Half the companies went out of business, and other supervisors have moved on to new jobs. He calls their HR departments and they won't give out that kind of information... EVEN TO HIM... about his OWN work history!
Is there other any place you can go to get such work history information on someone?
Is this the most bizarre policy ever? They say it is because of all the security issues related to education now. He's just going for an I/T job, not a teacher!
Does this mean any time anyone our age leaves a job we better get a written transcript on the way out the door in case we run into this in the future?
He may have to turn the job down because of this, because there's no way he's taking 1/2 salary for undocumentable work history.
W2's -- Yes he specifically asked them if that would do (I was surprised to learn that he's kept all of them since his first job ever, even in HS!) And his Corp Income tax returns (he worked as his own 1099 contract programmer for the past 7 years too). Nope, not enough they said.
Good to know about the 7 years retention rule. That's a really good point, and he confirms that's what he has to do for his own corp paperwork.
He's going to talk with them tomorrow and let them know how ridiculous their requirements are.
I mean, he agreed to criminal background check and is even getting fully fingerprinted as part of the employment requirement. But this is just bizarre!
(And if he doesn't take the job, he says he's going to question what their HR person earns a salary for. Isn't verifying employment part of thei job?)
Maddening! By this measure, God help all us if gov takes over health care.
I got a call back on a job and they said I got the job once I pass the background check and work verification. One of my jobs I worked at paid under the table, never had me fill out paper work or anything and I'm worried if they call my previous job will say I didn't work there. Should I tell the job I applied for the situation or just wait it out?
I need the loan to pay a bill for $880.00. I have a big check coming in for over $1000 in a couple of weeks but I need the $880 now. I have no job verification because I am a college student. I just need the loan for a couple of weeks or less and then I can pay it back plus the interest.
My last job was horrible, and I suffered through it for 2 years. My employer told us all to find new jobs because she was going to either fire us or lay us off. Sooooo, after two of us started looking, we both got fired. The problem is, they didn't use this as a reason. They pulled our computers and accused us of spending too much time on the internet for personal reasons, and called it insubordination and poor work performance. What do I put on another job application? If I lie, will anyone even find out? I'm not sure what to do!
I got fired from a job about 3 years ago, but since I worked there for over 3 years I still like to use it on a resume. What I want to know is legally, what can future employers find out from my old job? Should I not be putting this job on my resume? Basically its the only job on my resume that was an "important" and professional job and I don't want people to know that I got fired and especially the reason I got fired.
What is the procedure for verification of mark certificates, community certificate and characters and antecedents in India.
Many people I know say they've gotten their jobs through craigslist but all my boyfriend and i have run into are scams or commission jobs. How can we tell if its fake or not? what are the obvious signs?
Jobs that deal directly with money? Such as cashiers or bank tellers, people in retail, or restaurant servers? What other jobs deal directly with money?
Some jobs are not relevant or less than a year, can they be omitted and NOT admitted throughout the whole process? What does the background checks show from HR when they run it? Is there anyone who knows anything with the HR procedures and what you can and can't do legally? I know a lot of people who struggle with this... Maybe someone with a good heart can help. Thanks.
I'm thinking about majoring in business marketing and advertising when I go to college next year but I am wondering if, because of the recession, jobs in this area are declining.
Just wondering if previous jobs show up on your background check. Also do you know where I can go to check my background check? Just to see what my jobs see.
We are going to close on our home loan at the end of this month, my husbands job is sending him to another state to work, and another company has offered him a job in the area where we already are. So my only concern is if there are any consequences with changing your job so soon after closing a loan.
I have an important job application to fill out this weekend, and there is a section where you are supposed to fill in all gaps of unemployment and list a reference who can verify this. The problem is that it states it can't be a personal friend, relative, or anyone you've worked with....so my question then is, who the heck am I supposed to put down? I mean, I was in high school and college when most of these jobs occured and I wasn't really keeping references in mind.
I just got a job a few weeks ago (after being abroad for 4 years). So before I apply for a credit card, I want to make sure my job will pop up when they do the check on the application.
I need job verification giving salary, title and job description from employer.
Am I entitled to get such a letter? What can I do if employer does denies or does not respond?
When you do a resume is it a key thing to put your length of employment on it? I have a bad history and haven't lasted too long on my jobs.
Another opinion I could use from you guys : The last job I had was the longest I've kept a job (2 yrs) but I was fired! Should I put it down on the resume or no? Will they contact?
I have been asked by two different job applications to fill out a free credit score check online that is mandatory before a in person interview can be scheduled. Its after or part of the initial screening. Is this normal? Both times I haven't completed the application because I am afraid it is a scam, since the jobs were posted on craigslist. Is this something I should expect? Does looking into your credit score affect it? I've heard mixed things.
I'm really looking into trying to get a job at raging waters and I'd like to know what it's like and how to go about getting certified. I am a very good swimmer.
This is very true fact that many of us register with thousands of online job sites but couldn't get even a single cheque out of it. Please answer this question and lets everyone be aware of online scams
Will you give voluntary consent for a third party to conduct a background investigation, reference and/or credit check, employment verification and a pre-employment physical (if the position requires a physical)?
Should I say YES or NO.
