PostSubject: Background check employment question   Thu Mar 06, 2014 12:45 am

I'm applying for LE jobs in Florida. I completed the academy and put in multiple applications at various agencies. I'm working on an application now and realized I haven't been putting an employer on my previous applications. In 2008, I worked for a company for a short time period who offered additional hours through their sister company. I didn't apply for this extra work but was allowed to take it. I now realize looking back the sister company sent me separate checks while I worked at my main employer probably less than 40 hours of work.

I've come to a dilemma should I put this work experience on my future applications? If I do this my future app's won't match my previous ones which will be pulled during a background check and my app's will obviously be inconsistent. A LEO buddy told me I just should wait until a background interview occurs and mention it. I also haven't been listing a job I worked for a month while I was 16. Most agencies I've called before putting in an have told me it isn't necessary to list a job before I was 18. Should I put this job on future applications too?

INCLUDE THE JOB. MANY AGENCIES WON'T LOOK AT ANOTHER AGENCY'S APPLICATIONS. IF THEY HAPPEN TO, AND ASK YOU ABOUT IT, JUST BE HONEST.

I agree with CA77. Most police departments aren't going to compare applications unless there is a specific reason to. List your past employers as accurately as you can. If you didn't intentionally inaccurately provide information, then it shouldn't negatively affect you.
