I currently work as a lead developer for my company. I recently applied for a job and got the job offer. However, when they asked for salary in the background check form, I included my bonus which is 10% and 401k benefits and other incentives. So suppose say my actual salary is 100k, I rounded everything to 120k.(with a 20k difference). Will this cause an issue in my background check or will it affect the rate I am being paid at my new company.
Also, I mentioned my title as lead developer and have been for the past couple of years. But my company's HR never bothered changing my title (I had no clue or access to records of what my official title was).
My manager kept mentioning my title was lead and after I bothered checking today with HR, I was told I am registered as a software engineer. Few months ago I recall it saying I was a developer.These guys keep changing titles like its no one business and since it's a big company, switching it to a new title becomes an approval nightmare.
At this point, I wonder if it will cause any major issues while the new company does background check and is it serious enough to make them rescind my job offer. My reference(manager) can confirm with them I am actually a lead and doing my responsibilities as mentioned on my resume and I also have everything else accurate on my resume, be it employment dates or older job titles. I just don't want to lose this new opportunity because I was stupid enough not to check my job title with the HR when I was promoted internally.
Any suggestions or advice? Can they even check salary or job title?
