Worried My Work Reference Won't Answer

I am currently in the middle of a background screening for clearance. I am worried a reference I provided for a past job won’t answer. What will happen if they can’t contact my past manager for one of my past jobs?

Don’t worry everything humanly possible will be done to contact your previous manager.

Not your job to worry about! Provide as much contact info as you can and inform the supervisor they may be contacted. Then have names and contact info ready to provide for other people who knew you there.
