Background check

I worked at a startup for a while as a full time employee and for sometime as an advisor for equity. But, in my resume in order not to complicate I just put as if I worked there full time. I recently received an offer from a company and as part of that i need to go through background check. Do I put for that company in background check application the dates when I was full time or including the time as advisor?

    Just be honest. Put the actual truth. You know it’s wrong or you wouldn’t be asking.

    This exact situation happened to me. I only put down the period I was full-time in the background check.

      What happened. Did you provide pro-actively explanation to HR?

      There wasn’t much to explain as they didn’t ask. I just mentioned briefly that I had contracted for x period of time.

    Don't trip just put down the truth, tons of people do contract work and it only gets flagged if you're a criminal.
