Accurate Background
conducting background checks on prospective employees using federal, state, local, national, and education verification data. Each member of our six-person team is in charge of doing their own background checks on each candidate. It accomplishes the job effectively, and delays are typically brought on by inaccurate county data. It is considerably more pricey than its rivals.

Pros
Accurate Background
  • The user experience when submitting the background check is easy, straight-forward and well thought out
  • The results are always reliably fast. If there is a hold up (for small towns the clerk usually has to submit information manually) they provide us a reason for the extended wait time which is appreciated
  • The pricing is very reasonable

Cons
Accurate Background
  • Education Verifications- they reach out to National Clearinghouse but in my experience if don’t get a response they just close the case. We’ve had instances where the degree is only verified after we push them to continue to follow up. We are also charged pass through fees that range from $7-21 on top of the base price for the education verifications. I think, this is standard but seems pricey.
  • Cost - we are moving on from Accurate as we have found a significantly more cost effective option
  • Cost Transparency - to understand what a single background check costs, we have to reach out to the support team. I wish on the order it would break down the cost of each.
  • Sending emails from accurate - in the last year, I had an issue suddenly pop-up. I use to be able to click a button "send email" where the background check would populate in my outlook. Suddenly, that stopped working...I made no changes on my computer or with security/network/etc.. I reached out to accurate and they were adamant that it was something on my side and provided no help. I now have to send background checks to myself on my phone b/c the email won't populate. It is very frustrating!

Accurate actually makes an attempt to get things verified. They do not just call 10x in one day and then close it

Accurate Background
  • We have full confidence in the caregiver(s) we send to our clients' homes
  • The pricing structure makes it possible for our small business to use this as a supplemental service to double-check state issued reports that are not as reliable
  • User experience is great - Our incoming employees are never frustrated or confused when completing the authorization as part of their onboarding
