Asking for my fiance. She got a job offer from a decent engineering services/consulting firm (mechanical engineering major). She signed the offer letter and even had a drug test and background check. Now we have got an offer which works for us better personally. We are planning to decline the first one. Now surely they will be unhappy. But can they do anything legally? The second firm will also do a background check, will there be any issue there also? (Like a previous background check showing on record). Would be great to get your inputs as we have until Monday to decide. No difference between comp. But the second one works much much better personally.
Yep our plan is to take the offer which works personally. But both these firms are sort of old school. Not like tech firms of Bay area like Google, FB, Uber etc. So not sure what the risks etc will be.
