I got an offer from Microsoft and during background check they only asked for Ssn and date of birth. What do they verify in background check. Do they cross check the background check results with the resume?

    • I think MS asks HireRight for verification of education credentials.

      This reminds me - I know a guy that was asked to leave the TS office after failing the background check upon day 1.

      Couple of DUIs, I think...

    Background check companies usually will verify the resume. For example, calling to the companies and education institutions you have attended and to ensure you have been there during the claimed period.

      They have stopped doing these kinds of checks. These days it’s mostly criminal background check

      Really! I just switched jobs and it was a simple background check where they did not ask me for previous companies, time spent and education history

      For me, they only asked for education even though I had past work experience (and my education was a while ago). They never asked for previous employer information for some reason.
