hi Opera,
i fully agree with Vinay about the things he has mentioned to verify from the previous employer.
As per my opinion it depends upon the level at which you are recruiting a person. For senior level you can also check the following things:
1. Man Management skills
2. Leadership Qualities.
3. Integrity rating.
4. Ability to work under high pressure
It is always better if the reference is checked with the previous reporting authorities.
All the very best to you.
Warm Regards,

Hi dude,
Please don’t show your company name (Alturki) over here. It is one of the bullshit companies in the world. As everyone know that your company is in a pathetic situation!!!Even I have seen your company’s recruitment mail which insists candidate to sign off a contract with six month notice period!!!Even rocket manufacturing companies not pushing their senior most scientist to sign off a contract with six months notice period dude!!!Furthermore, If my memory is right 6 years back your company stopped payment for workers as a result of financial crisis due to great management techniques!!!story continues in the same manner till today. More over alturki is nothing(small zero) infront of main subcontracting companies like Galfar al misnad, Arabian industries and Al Hassan. Then what reference check your company required for senior staff to execute ‘closet’ fitting and ‘bathroom door’ fitting projects!!!

I fully endorse the views of Mr.Anton Kashnikov which is written in the interest of the writer. All others who work for companies like this one should also take a note of it. Fraternals in citeHR need such valuable suggestions and cautions from people like you Mr.Anton.

Dear ,
Has I any where mentioned that I am implementing the same kind of practice in my present job...Any forum member has not got the right to share the practice which he / she was following in his previous assignments????????? PERSONS LIKE YOU WORKING WITH THE NO.1 COMPANY OF OMAN (I DON'T KNOW WHETHER IT IS CORRECT????) ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO GIVE THEIR OPINION???????
Are we talking about the HR practices and procedures OR discussing about the ranking of the company... Is this a forum to express the personal depression / grievances?????
I don't want to reply in such words which you had utilised in your post... as I have seen your color....

I worked in a company 'A' for a year and then next I worked in another company 'B' for one year and presently I am working in another company 'C'. Now I have got an offer from one of the largest MNCs, say company 'D'. I have submitted all employment related documents to 'D' for Background verification.

Company 'A' is run very very unprofessionally. It's run by unethical people. THEY ARE VERY POWERFUL PEOPLE AND ARE NOT AFRAID OF ANY LEGAL CONSEQUENCES. I have the offer letter from them signed by the then General Manager of the company who has also moved out recently. I have the Relieving Letter signed by the MD himself. Out of one year of employment, I received salaries in Cash for just first 2 months, May 2013 and June 2013. From 3rd month i.e. July 13 I received through Bank Transfers only. Again, although I received Cash in the Second Month i.e. June 13, they deducted TDS and deposited in my name. So, on my PAN Ledger for June 13 it shows a tax credit from company 'A'. That is also a proof that they paid me Salary. I had an EPF Account also there. Apart from first two months i.e. May 13 & June 13, they deducted my PF and also paid every month to the EPFO from July 13 till last month of my employment. Although Company 'A' deducted Income Tax from my salaries regularly I do not have the Form 16 from Company 'A' but again my TDS are reflected on Form 26AS which can be downloaded any time from Income Tax Website. That was the background of my employment in Company 'A'.

Now my questions are:

1. What to do if company 'A' ignores or denies to certify the details of my employment in 'A' when Background Verification Agency on behalf of Company 'D' visits there?

2. In case, company 'A' does not provide details or provide some false information that do not match with those given by me to Company 'D', will the Background Verification Agency or the Recruiting Company 'D' let me know about it? I mean will I be provided an opportunity to prove myself by providing other supporting documents like Salary Account Statements? Or they will simply put Red Mark on my profile and dismiss my appointment?

NOTE: As per initial requirement of Company 'D', I have just provided Offer Letter and Relieving Letter of company 'A'. As of now, I have not provided any extra supporting documents like Salary Account Statement. I thought I should give those documents only if they ask for and not before that unnecessarily.
