Okay, so I work in HR (amongst other fields) and we order background checks for our employees. So I’m checking on our latest prospect and I get kind of curious about what my background check says.
So while I’m in the background check website (run by a different company then my own, if that matters), I pull up my file.
Only to discover that I have two red flags.
One is that the dates of my employment are off. It says I started at my prior place of work in July and left the following August. I put on my resume that I started in March and left the following July.
I can somewhat understand the difference in regards to the first three months - I was a temping for the company for those three months. So no problem - I update my resume with that information. As for working the extra month, I have no idea. It seems strange to me.
The second red flag is my job title. When I was hired at said company I was an AAII. 1/2 into my employment I got a promotion to an account lead. The HR representative at said company apparently said that I was only an AAII and never an account lead.
My question is, can I get into contact with the HR rep of this company to sort these things out - or is that against the law? I haven’t ever heard of anyone doing such a thing so I really don’t know - I suspect it’s not illegal.
