I dont even bother checking references anymore, worthless.
If you were fired from a job and leave it on your resume, the new employer will find out when they conduct a verification of past employment.

Leaving it off and then telling someone you were travelling the world is a red flag in and of itself. They'll either think you're lying or that you're a flight risk. Neither quality is one worth hiring.

The only reason you think checking references and doing background checks is a joke is because the jobs you are hiring for are jokes. You probably don't see the value in spending time and money on bus boys, waiters or sink jockeys. You know... menial jobs.
