Hi Everyone:

I recently got a job and Sterling is doing my background check. When I filled out the info on Sterling website, I put "sales manager" as job title in one of my previous working experience but the truth is I got promoted as "sales manager" but I left the company before the promotion went effective. So basically I was a senior sales associates. It was 4 years ago and I had another working after that. During my interview with the my potential employer, I told my hiring manager that I was a senior sales associate and on my resume I also put "senior sales associate"...So will this discrepancy cost my job offer?

Another question is, my reference in my first company left the company earlier than me (most of my colleagues left the company now so he is the only one I still have contact with). Will the background check company contact the HR of the first company? (though I didn't put the phone number of the HR department).

I really wanna get this job so your opinions are highly appreciated!!!
