I have a job offer based conditionally on a standard "background check", which includes references.
The problem is that they are asking for 3 references in total, and note "managers/supervisors only". Well, I haven't had that many jobs! My current job is my third one.
It does note "If you are supplying a reference from your current employer, will you give permission for us to contact them for a reference interview".
Considering they are requesting three references, I have no choice but to use my current employer as well as my previous managers from previous roles, but what's the use if I say no to my prospective interviewing my current employer?
