    Default I was offered the position,but now they're doing a background check...I

     

    lied on my resume and now I'm paranoid I was getting sick and tired of applying everywhere and not getting called in for an interview, so I started lying on my resume. I added a job that I never worked at. So now I've gone through all the interviews and was offered the position Monday...now I'm just waiting for the background check. Has anyone ever lied about their work history and still got the job? And please, all you self-righteous people, I don't need you telling me that lying on my resume is wrong.

    Most pre-employment background checks only verify the last 3 employers that you list on your application. I left off some employers that did not like me, but they were not the last 3 so I did not have to show any gaps in my employment record. I got that job.
    In the USA, it is easy to lose a job because you lied on your resume. Typically, Pre Employment Screen Background Checks include: Verification of identity, SSN, employment history, education, and address history. Checks State and county criminal records, sexual offender, terrorist watch, credit check, bankruptcy. (Federal criminal records available.) Matched by name & birthday.
