You may not have time to put your applicants or candidates under a microscope, but we do. Better than that, we do this professionally! The cost to hire an individual can be very expensive between applicant screening, interviewing time, evaluations, drug test and other costs. Therefore, when you select a candidate, you need to ensure that they are who they claim to be and that you know as much about them as possible. Performing a background check on applicants is an investment rather than a cost. Employers need to know who they are hiring and what type of trust can they place with an individual. Employees have access to sensitive documents, expensive inventories and company equipment. You need to trust, but verify. Our Complete Employee Evaluation will allow you to form the basis of your trust by verifying the candidate’s statements.
Let us do a complete or partial background check on an individual to help you determine if there is a good match. This service is ideal for employers who want to verify a candidates work history, working parents who are interviewing a nanny or those who want to learn more about their partner’s history. Services are available packaged or a la carte.
Our trained investigators will research your candidate’s:
Motor Vehicle Record
Providing a written summary indicating if the candidate is licensed, whether their license is in good standing and a listing of any violations. If an individual will be driving or have access to a company vehicle, this is particularly important. It also provides insight to the candidate’s personal habits and self-control.
Providing a written summary indicating if the candidate was ever charged with a misdemeanor or felony, if they were convicted and if they were incarcerated for any period of time. Exposing other employees or customers to a dangerous or unreliable person, could spell disaster for your company. Know what type of person you will be investing in!
Civil Suit Involvement
Providing a written summary of the candidate’s propensity to enter into civil lawsuits. We will detail the date of the suit, listing of all plaintiffs and defendants, the status of the suit and the disposition of the case.
Prior Employment Verification
Providing a written summary verifying or contradicting the candidate’s past employers. At a minimum, our investigators will verify dates of employment, positions held and termination dates. Any other information obtained will also be relayed.
Credit History Evaluation
Providing a written summary of the candidate’s personal credit history including comments on delinquency, any open suits, liens or judgments and a general analysis of their credit-worthiness.
Providing a written summary verifying or contradicting the candidate’s academic achievements including institution attended and date of graduation and degree held.
Physical Neighborhood Evaluation
Providing a written summary of a candidate’s residence along with the surrounding neighborhood. Upon request, we can also provide digital still or video photography of the neighborhood and residence. This is important to confirm that the applicant resides where he/she says she does as well as ascertain the applicant’s lifestyle, particularly in positions of a sensitive nature.
