My company runs around 75 background checks a year and we are looking to use a new background check company. We are looking at Checkr but find it odd we don't have to sign a contract or anything. Curious what companies you might use (and like), and if anybody has an opinion on Checkr!

    Business Outlook


    Middle management is accessible, work is remote & flexible, decent pay.


    Strategic decisions are confused, not communicated well to employees. Career path is ambiguous and kept deliberately vague. Too much shuffling employees around.

      Average Interview


      There was a screening call plus 4 rounds of interviews and to top it off a project for the final round. I thought that was way too much time to be invested for the process especially if it was not going anywhere. Felt like a waste of time and effort and I don't like the feeling of making to the final round and then rejected when things genuinely felt like they went well.

      Typical tell me about yourself.
