    On my CV I wrote references upon request. Despite getting the job after only 3 hours of the interview (confirmed by phone and email), they havent ask for me to provide them. The company is relatively small, why would they not ask for references?

    I work for a large department store and they never asked for references either, they just didn't need them.

    I've had a couple of jobs that haven't been bothered about references - some employers just prefer to make their own mind up rather than listen to someone else's opinion. They're obviously confident you will be a good worker, absolutely nothing to worry about.

    Its probably because they dont need references. If they wanted you to provide one they would have asked by now.

    If I could tell which employers wouldnt ask for references I'd put I was a qualified surgeon on my CV and that I worked with the Australian Prime minster for 8 years before sailing on a voyage round the world with captain jack sparrow.

    Have you signed anything? A lot of companies nowadays use background screening companies to do the work for them. Or if its really small, they probably couldn't be a****ed.
