Background Check? [#permalink] New post 08 Apr 2010, 15:32
Does anyone know if IESE uses a background check like Kroll?
At a previous job, I was paid through the headhunter/recruiter for the first 6 months and wasn't officially on HR's books. For those who are familiar, it was a temp-to-permanent contract. I've called HR and they actually list my start date as 6 months after I started working there. I have at least 3 managers who can confirm I was working there during this time. I was considering notifying the ADCOM but wasn't sure it was worth making an issue. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

Hello,

I don't know what IESE does specifically, or if they do it for every applicant. However, in my experience, when a background check reveals an inconsistency, the school will usually contact the applicant for an explanation. In your case, it sounds as thought the explanation is quite simple, and you can always get a manager from the company to back up your story.

Don't worry... The school won't simply say, "This story doesn't add up... Rejected!" They do these checks to catch BIG lies, such as someone lying about running a whole department or earning a certain GPA in college. A small discrepancy like this, which can be easily explained, won't cause any problems.

So your suggestion would be to wait and see if anything comes up?

Yes, I would wait. Everything you submitted was fine -- nothing about what you reported was misleading. If the company reports your time in the job one way and you report it another way, the school will ask you for clarification. It's definitely not a big deal.
