They’re going to find it whether you put it or not. If you’ve been hired, I don’t really believe this will have any impact. It’s more likely that not disclosing it will be a bigger issue than disclosing it imo.

So should I just put them down? I mean, I am already working for the Big 4, would they really not hire me because I was fired from a job the summer after my freshman year?

Sounds like you made your decision....why ask everyone what to do if you don't want to leave it out?

The company forced me to do anyways.

I wouldnt

Not sure if they would even be able to tell that you were fired through the background check. They may only be able to verify that you worked there for the dates that you did

A background check's purpose is for criminal matters, lawsuits, liens, etc. They may see you worked there but reason for departure won't come up unless there were criminal charges related to it. I would leave it out, just for brevity.

Are you sure? I mean, if it asks for all employment in the last seven years, isn’t it bad to leave it out?

I haven’t really made a decision. I suppose I just don’t want to jeopardize the offer. If I list it, how bad would it be if they found out I was fired from a job in college?

I’ve had small things like this come up on background checks (I interned at a company over the summer, temped with them during my senior year, and joined full time after graduation; only listed the company once and the background check flagged the 2 other times) it was quickly sorted out with no concerns, but they will find out

Did you get W2 wages or were you paid under the table? If you got paid under the table no way anyone would find out

W2 wages

Is this a background check for just general employment or for a clearance? I doubt it will show up on a general check....but I don’t think anyone is going to care you got fired, you just have to explain why if it comes back

Just a general check for a big 4

In general, I imagine getting fired from a job five years ago wouldn’t matter much, right?
