    I have been offered a job at co-op, my details have been sent off to the head office will they check the two references? The two past employers of mine Primark and Poundland, Managers who names I put down no longer work there so when they ring the store they wont really have a clue who I am. What do they actually ask when phoning for a reference anyway? My induction is like 3 weeks away aswell so im presuming they will check these references during that time.

    Some don't check references at all if they can't be bothered. Some only check one of them. They will just ask did (you) work there and how long for as the store should have some sort of record for you there.
