Does Kroll verify employment with the manager/recommender or through your HR dept (for large companies). I'm asking this because for my previous job, I wasn't getting paid by that company...it was through a contract through an outside party. I had the same responsibilities as the regular employees, same managers, same title, etc.

They will call your recommenders just to make aure that they wrote the letters. For employment verification, you need to give a number where they can call. I would give your manager's number and also let school know that you were not getting paid. They have staff or a tie-up with someone in pretty much all the countries.

For Kroll, are you able to give your manager's information as a way for them to verify title / salary / etc.? Or does it have to be HR? I don't want to tell HR quite yet since it would definitely hurt my promotion chances...

Hi everyone,

About two years ago I founded my own company, which I've sold recently, during that period I also worked for some months in a large Bank. I'm about to begin my applications and I don't know what to do about it. What would the adcoms think about someone who had a full-time job and manged a business at the same time ? Should I omit that I worked for a bank? I don't live in the United States, so I don't know how does the background check works for foreign applicants and how far it goes with the investigations. Whould it be a serious ommission?

What do you guys think?


Same boat. Founded a startup, sold it two years in. While at the same time had a FT job in banking in Europe. I was honest about it both in my apps and interview. "There was no way i could afford food if I didn't hold a full time job while my startup was in incubation mode". Since that was the truth, it was really up to the bschool to believe me or not. I assume they did since I've been accepted.

I was ready to provide as much info regarding my startup (registration papers, news articles, etc).

Don't sweat it.

How about background checks for International students, how does kroll go about doing those, as I am sure its much harder to get info.


I'm also interested in this.


Seeing how most business schools have student bodies that are >30% international, I'm pretty sure Kroll has experience getting the information they need regardless of your work or educational background. If they can't find something they'll ask you for assistance.

For my part-time job that I did when I was in school, they also contributed to my tuition. Can I include that in my salary ?

To add another question to the stressful, yet probably no reason to stress about it, background check thread...

Does anyone know if they get access to your work's performance reviews? Obviously, they verify the company, title, salary, etc, but anything more than that?

I realize there are a bunch of applicants/matriculating folks to review so I'm 99.9% sure the answer to my question is "no" just based on resources/time, but I wanted to check just to be sure!

Not a concern but more an annoyance but does anybody else find it kind of odd/obnoxious that you have to pay for your own background check? I mean I had to pay to apply to school, pay a fortune in tuition now that I'm accepting and then I have to pay for the school to investigate my application for them. It was only $25 but still, just struck me as really strange to have to pay for them to verify what I told them.

Hah! Yes, but I would take a $25 fee over the $100 that I'll have to pay.

Hi,
I've competed in half-marathons few years ago but unfortunately can't find my medals. Would it be an issue if the AdCom/Third Party companies (Kroll) as me to prove my claim about competing in half-marathons?
Thanks!

I accidentally realized I wrote my job started a month earlier than it actually did. This was just a careless mistake as I wrote that my previous job ended in November but somehow started my current job in October. Also in my resume I have my job listed as November. Is this going to be a problem?

When your recommender is contacted, what does KRoll or ReVera verify? Do they ask for basic stuff such as their title, whether they recommended us etc? Or will they go in details such as my salary info, stuff on my resume or even the essays? I asked one of my senior colleagues to write my recommendation so he does not have my salary info. Just wondering if I need to prepare him or give him more details.

Do they verify employment of recommenders themselves: things such as how many employees they manage etc?

Also, my company outsources employment verification. So not sure how KRoll or ReVera will verify my bonus and stocks. If you have any info, please help.

Thanks a bunch.

simple answer: why do you care ? Let Kroll do their work. You have paid $25 for it. Your admit is not going to be rescinded if they don't find information (that is their incompetency); that will be the case when they find a gap in the information you provided in your app and the real thing.

Schools say everything that you provided can be checked by the verifying agency. But, mostly, it's the basic information such as job dates, whether your recommender actually wrote your recs etc.

They ask different stuff based on what each particular school wants them to verify.

As I've said about 6 times on this thread, unless you were deliberately misleading on your application, you have nothing to worry about.

When you are a consultant and has your client manager as recommender, the client manager doesn't have any idea about your salary. If the manager tells them that he doesn't know some of the information, how I can route them to my main employer?

Hey can someone who has completed the Kroll background check share with us on 2 things.

1. does the questionaire you fill out include a checkbox saying "No or Yes" to if you have disciplinary violations? Not criminal, but like withdrawal. etc.

2. Extra-cul. Heard this is too manual for them to do, but do they really check?

I know someone has asked before, but can someone paste the list of questions for Kroll background check? particularly education history check.

will they check disciplinary records?

I understand that it will be mostly where the degree, when attend, gpa, and awards, etc. But is there a checkbox for disciplinary records when you fill the forms?

If someone dont feel comfortable about sharing the whole questionaire in public, i will really appreciate if you can share with me about this PM with monetary rewards.You dont have to reveal your name and I can pay paypal to you.

I have a UG from a YSPH. Graduated one year ago.

You know by posting that frantically you make it pretty clear you lied about something on your application right? Or at least a lie by omission I would guess. If you didn't then there is nothing to freak out about.
