I was at a job for about 10 months five years ago. I was terminated for a "he said, she said" disagreement with someone I worked with only one day. She had been there for nearly 10 years and so they took her word over mine.
Today I had a job interview and didn't list that job on my application/resume and was asked about the gap in employment. Luckily I had an answer - I was in my final year of graduate school.
The two interviews went very well and I was told they would do a criminal background check and call my references today. The assistant manager said I would likely be asked to come in tomorrow for a final interview after all of this was done and be offered a position at that time. No promises, but that is how he put it.
This job is with a large retail business that employs thousands of people all over the world and my position would be entry level.
Neither of my references have been called today. Does this mean they found out I omitted that job from my application? If applying for a job, should I be listing this on my resume?
