If you get fired from Deloitte (or similar), what would they say in a background check? Would they say “would not rehire” or something like that? Anyone have any issues with this?

It’s basically illegal in most states to mention any kind of negative verbiage when confirming whether a person worked at a firm or not. For example, if I find out that during my background check, a former employer said something like “that guy was an asshole” I‘d have legal grounds to sue.

Depends who you put as the contact for D. I’ve gotten calls from HR depts where the former team member listed me as the contact on the background check and I just had to confirm the month/year they worked with me

To that end: always only put the Corporate hotline

I think an outside background check would only show your start and end date along with title and salary.

They definitely would not share salary

They only confirm the dates worked. They do NOT confirm salary unless you specifically sign an additional release through the Work Number on a case by case basis.

I went through a background check for a (very, very low) clearance and got grilled for like 45 minutes and 8 different ways on why a former employer had me listed as “non-rehireable”. So....they may list you as that but it’s, or at least how it’s been explained to me, generally reserved for cases where you left for bad reasons. HR issues like racism or sexual harassment, stole money, something like that.
