I'm glad you're including the position. The online application I filled out was pretty thorough. The recruiter initially rejected my application because I left a gap of a few months between an internship and college. They want everything accounted for.
I'm no expert on background checks, but since you use your SSN for tax purposes, I'd be shocked if it doesn't show up.
I really don't see the issue, though. Is it frowned upon to leave out a short-term employment on your resume? I would have done the same thing! The resume is meant to highlight the applicant's strengths in a clear/concise manner. No recruiter wants to read someone's life story every time they browse a resume. I don't think it'll raise any eyebrows to include a job on your online application that wasn't on your resume.
