So I narrowed down to roehl and prime for company training. I told them that when I submitted the app there are a few jobs I didn’t put down because I totally forgot about them. One of the recruiter said as long as they can contact the ones I listed I should be fine. But when orientation comes and background check don’t all my employment show up ? I feel like I repeat the same thread I am sorry about that. I just don’t want to be that guy that doesn’t comes back to the class room

BMI:

Body mass index (BMI)

BMI is a formula that uses weight and height to estimate body fat. For most people, BMI provides a reasonable estimate of body fat. The BMI's biggest weakness is that it doesn't consider individual factors such as bone or muscle mass. BMI may:

  • Underestimate body fat for older adults or other people with low muscle mass
  • Overestimate body fat for people who are very muscular and physically fit

It's quite common, especially for men, to fall into the "overweight" category if you happen to be stronger than average. If you're pretty strong but in good shape then pay no attention.

You absolutely must give them your employment background accurately. If they find discrepancies it's going to look bad. Now I don't mean if your employment dates are off by a month or you have the wrong phone number. That's little stuff. But to completely leave out some jobs is going to look like you might be hiding something.

Make sure you put together a very accurate employment history and ask them what you can do to update it in their system. Also, make sure you bring it with you to whichever company hires you and present it to them right away on day one.

It's very important that you are being upfront and honest with these companies. An honest mistake can happen but you have to make the effort to correct it right away. In this case you know the information you gave them wasn't accurate so do all you can to be up front about that and present them with the accurate information right away.

There’s just two. But I don’t know the numbers and one of them I don’t the number at all because they called me from an unknown caller so I have no way to get that info other just that I worked for that company

Not knowing their phone number isn't a tragedy. As long as you list the employer and the dates you worked there you should be ok. If you leave employers off completely they'll start getting suspicious.
