Hi, Big companies like Apple and Adobe do conduct background checks.

They will hire a professional background verification firm to do the checking. H******** is the firm.

If you ever get selected to work for any of those firms, don't be caught off guard by how detailed the verification report turns out. But if you have no serious variances in your resume, should not be a problem.

Just my 2 cents

Oh ya, Remember to write the truth in your resume whenever an external expert is checking your resume.

or things in grey areas like personality etc? what if they want to check for these and requested for superior who actually dont like you...

It's actually the payslip that was provided is altered that why my friend is worried whether it will constitute to a fraud in additional to termination.

Not trying to sound negative. I think altering the pay slip is quite serious as it concerns money. It suggests he has the tendency to do such things even when he starts work..

If it was something like job title. Actual is temporary officer but he wrote office admin, is like basically the same thing. So should not be a problem.

Default Btailess survey,

And c'mon dude. They are not so unfair to check for personality traits. They check this during the interview itself. They will drill and grind you with 3 interviewers.
