Waiting on the background check to come back, stupid M&A messing up their ability to find my info at one role. Never stopped anyone else though.

@OP, I had this problem with HireRight, I called every day and asked to escalate it to a manager, then I gave them my situation, send them my paystubs, W-2s, and all the other verification forms directly, and kept calling every single day to ask for an update

A1 that's the company, have never had problems like this before, and I've been run through governmental checks in other countries based on the type of work I do.

HireRight is very low rent in my opinion. I’d call and ask to speak with a manager, and they’ll put you through to an escalation representative or something. Then literally send them emails and calls every single day. I’ve found that once a rep gets involved the process goes much quicker

A1 I love the time estimate "your background report will be completed in 1 - 1 minutes and made available to XXX on October 28, 2018"

M&A?

Marsal Alvarez?

Merger and acquisition, worked somewhere that got bought and absorbed. So I technically worked with two companies, but the same job.

Why don’t you just provide W2/Paystub?

I did that and sent them the copy of the background check done by my firm. Still taking them a while.

Who’s the background check company? Are they verifying things like job title too?

Do they (hire right) verify job titles too?

SC1 they do according to the documentation I signed

Why don’t you give them an HR contact to call and verify?

Since the company I was part of was absorbed, the employment verification folks at the company that purchased them only have records that go back a few years for some reason. It's a pretty strange situation in general, and apparently an offer letter and my acceptance was not good enough to verify on their end.

So after sending all your documents in, what did they say?

Still in process which doesn't really answer any questions, I'm just getting antsy because I'm not giving notice until this comes back and the hiring company confirms all is good.

@SC1, I used worknumber to pull my entire wage history and sent that to them, and had my HR department email the escalation representative confirmation. This is pissing me off now just talking about it. But know you aren’t the only one this happens to, and I ended up starting on my specified date, it just took some blood sweat and tears on my own end to do their job for them

A1, is there a way to request an employment report through theworknumber as an individual? Last I checked you have to mail something in and wait like 3 weeks.

I had an employee key that I could use with the last four of my social to access my report. As your hr department how they verify employment and then see if you can send HireRight those forms

Yeah I had my check from my firm and the previous employer that their asking the most about. I sent both of those to them as well, just in case there's any confusion.

Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!
