    Our employment verifications are many times the most important part of the screening process. Trained verification specialists will contact the applicant’s employer’s human resources department directly to obtain a formal verification of employment. This includes the applicant’s start date, current employment status, position or title, compensation structure along with the amount of hours worked on average if the applicant is an hourly employee. This is key to ensure the applicant has not had any recent changes in employment status that is not shown on a pay stub. In addition, we work directly with The Work Number and have access to instant electronic verification’s including salary details without the need for a salary pin – not to mention we have negotiated reduced rates for our clients.

  • Consumer Credit Reports

    Credit reports will provide you with the applicant’s payment, address and employment history as well as a fraud evaluation tool to help you eliminate many cases of identity theft with credit alerts. You are able to view the entire credit report in a secure online, easy to read format to reduce the likelihood of this sensitive information getting into anyone’s unauthorized possession. Public records are also included on the credit report showing you any Tax Liens, Bankruptcies or Judgments that have been rendered against your potential applicant. Choose from any; or all 3 of the major credit bureaus – Experian, TransUnion & Equifax!

  • FICO (Credit) Scores

    The FICO (credit) score is used by many of our clients but is an optional item when placing your order for a screening product. We use the FICO score instead of an insider rating system to simplify the decision process. FICO scores are understood by most people, 450 is bad and 700 is great; why complicate the process by using a “percentage of delinquency potential” rating or a 1-100 scoring system that is offered by some of our competitors.
