Greetings friends , I have a quick question :
I established a partnership with a friend a couple of years back in order to start providing IT related services , after 3 weeks we decided that it would be better to operate under a corporation ( company ) protocol and hence we integrated the activity of our previous ( now annulled partnership ) into an existing company that my partner had established three years back , I have all the invoices and yearly tax documentation . In my application I wrote that I partnered with a friend and started a company , will kroll red flag my application ???


I have absolutely no idea why this would cause any sort of red flag. First of all, they are very unlikely to go into that depth beyond determining the existence of said company. As it has existed for a few years, what is the issue? In addition, if there are any questions at all, the Kroll administrator for your check will talk with you if any issues come up. You have the legal documents to support your position. Remember, it isn't like the school wants to ding you or red flag you. This is also true of the background check company. The more of an issue that comes up, the bigger the workload it creates for them. Unfortunately, according to some recent articles on background companies, unless you are hiding a dirty past or outright lie about something bonehead-stupid, you are likely quite safe.

I have an important question about the Kroll Verification process. My official job title according to HR records is an archaic, unused one, but retained for salary-level purposes. The job title I reported on my application form is the one that is the industry standard and is used within my team. Will this be a big issue for Kroll?

I have informed my boss and he says that it's ok, and that if asked he will mention the reason for the discrepancy.

Should I be very worried? Is this a reason for a school that has admitted me to rescind the offer? I have only one admit so far, and its for my dream school so im very anxious about this....

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.


As I've stated multiple times in this thread, unless you made a deliberate attempt to deceive the adcom in your essays, resume, or work experience, you don't have anything to worry about. Kroll isn't looking for a way to yank people's admissions, they just want to verify that no blatant liars slipped through the cracks. If there are any minor discrepancies (or if they can't reach a contact you listed) they'll call or email you and give you a chance to clarify. I've never heard of anyone getting unnecessarily hassled by Kroll.

If they really need information, they will find it--either by asking the manager for the name of someone who would know, or by asking you for another contact. I can guarantee that you're not the first consultant who's gone through this process in the past.

Hey Guys - happy new year! Sorry, but I'm reviving this old thread. I caught a mistake in my community volunteer section after reviewing my application proof in greater detail. I applied to a top 10 business school program. Dates and hours are wrong (I put five months of involvement whereas I was only involved for two months). This is something that is back in 2009, and involves picking up trash / cleaning.

Is this something that background check firms will need to verify? The exact dates of my involvement? Been worrying about it and just wanted to ask someone who knew better. Apart from this, I have several other more material community service activities that I'm in presently.

Thanks!


Don't worry about this much. If Kroll or any other background check company has questions, they will reach out to you directly.

Thanks Aerien. Appreciate the response. Do you know if they typically review stuff like this that happened that long ago? Sorry if I'm jumping the gun here.


From what I've heard they of course confirm all the major stuff -- education, jobs, etc. As far as confirming every line item of community service someone's done, I guess (but really have no confirmation) that checks are either done for places that are easily confirmed (eg major organizations) and/or are only checked in detail if something signals as a red flag. If you happened to mark something off by an hour or two or a month or two, it might not be a big deal -- and they of course can and will reach out to you if there are any clarifications needed; if you say you want to college and you didn't, well you have much bigger issues then.

My employer told me that Kroll called both him and HR. They checked 2 bullets on my resume with the manager. I am not sure if my case if common, but they actually scared me because my manager does not have knowledge about every project(bullet) on my resume. I am wondering if anybody else has the similar experience.

Hi guys,

Would love some input from people in the know: I have 3 situations that I'm a little concerned about when it comes to background verification:

1) My supervisor left the company a few weeks after my app was due and my new supervisor is extremely hands off and we've only spent a month together. Only my previous boss and the one before him can really testify to my experience. How would Kroll handle this? I've already given HR a headsup about background verification so they have my docs updated.
2) I am hoping to quit my job in 2 months or so to spend the summer backpacking. Does anyone know when background checks are conducted? With scenario #1, I'd rather be in the vicinity in case they need to get in touch with an employer or need any verification, so I'm unsure of when to actually leave.
3) I got a huge raise after my first 2 years and my supervisor at the time told me at my perf review that I was being promoted but nothing was formalized except in pay because I was told "Titles don't matter here." since then, my supervisor has changed and we've been acquired, so I'm worried since I said I was promoted in my app, it might come across as disingenuous although it was 100% true. Should I have my prev supervisor write in a letter to HR confirming what was discussed? My responsibilites definitely changed and several managers can attest to that.

Thanks so much for all your help!

Check stuff on your resume, your graduation date and GPA etc., court records, pull a credit report - pretty standard stuff really.
Most large employers already do this for all new hires.

ha ha. they will have a problem at some companies. If they rang up anyone from my company asking for that information they would be told they can't give out personal details for security reasons.

What about old bench warrants? 5 years ago I got an open container ticket (not in a vehicle, on the sidewalk) but never paid it. I'm pretty sure there is a bench warrant out on me now. I know I was stupid, but I was young and was moving to a new state anyway. Now I am out of the country and will not be able to fly back to the states to take care of the ticket until the summer before the MBA program starts. By then it will be too late, the MBA decisions will be made. Will something like this disqualify me if I get accepted? It would totally suck if I got accepted and then "disqualified" because of a stupid old open container ticket.

By the way, the state where I got the ticket is far far away from where I want to go to school (if that matters).

I may have troubles with the conversions I made from R$ and EUR to USD, but it's something very easy to explain. I also considered somethings like house renting that the bank pays me as salary, but once again very easy to explain.

As DJ stated, don't worry, unless it's a big lie

Also most schools co sponsor the student loans, so they want to make sure that you are a responsible debtor.

Good question about the credit check because there is nothing on the application that asks you about your credit. How could they reneg on the admission if your credit is bad? You never lied about anything. However, based on the costliness of business school, I understand the concern about credit. If your debt to income ratio is already out of control then how are you going to handle more debt with no income?

Given the fact that most B-school graudates are able to get into a decent job after graduation and the fact that student loan payments dont start until after 6 months post-graduation, I really dont see how a credit score is relevant. Also, international students with bad credit will then get away with it, right? So, how can an admission be rescinded based on credit score.

I agree, it would be strange to be rejected after they check your credit, but the debt to income ratio is a legitimate concern--despite the deferral of your student loan payments until after you graduate. Some people have mortgages, car payments, credit card debt, even college loans to pay off--all at once! How are they going to pay for that when they are going to school full-time, especially with no savings? It would be very difficult to take out a student loan that covers all of that, given the liquidity and credit crises that the market is experiencing--just look at Sallie Mae. Just like there are a few cases of people who blatantly lie on their app and schools rescine their offer as a result; there is probably few borrowers who have atrocious credit to the point that schools must rescind their offer. In the end, I bet schools will try everything to make the financial packages work, as opposed to the fraudulent applicants who are kicked to the curb.

I dont think there is any reason to worry about this Kroll stuff
they just want to check whether you are what you say are
did you do thejobs you claimed? did you get approx the same salaries you put in your forms? are your recommenders genuine? stuff like this... i'm sure they wouldnt be counting pennies
