I was with my previous employer for one year and within that one year they have a four month training period. After leaving the company I've applied for another position at a different company. I received an offer letter and I am now in process employment verification and background check phase.
I provided my references and contacted one of my former colleagues and he informed me my previous company doesn't consider those four months of training as part of my employment. I've listed on my resume I was with the company for a full year as I was never informed otherwise when I left my previous employer.
This may come up during employment verification, what should I say/expect?
