Accurate Background

Accurate is a global organization that has background checks available internationally. The report formatting could be improved. It's messy and difficult to read.

ZipRecruiter

ZipRecruiter is a great platform for entry/low-level positions as it's a very popular job board that can stretch to thousands of potential applicants. When it comes to more senior roles, because it's incredibly easy for anyone to apply, it's time-consuming and difficult to find a "needle in a haystack" for an open position

ZipRecruiter

  • ZipRecruiter makes it almost too easy for candidates to apply for roles using their one-click apply method. This leads to many unqualified applications for open roles.
  • The platform should look to offer more options for employers to source candidates better. While it does offer the ability to add screening questions, it lacks more specific-related questions to truly test a candidate's skills.
  • Their internal database is a little quirky and does not have the powerful (or useful) search functions available.

Have not had to utilize support recently, but in past instances they have reached out within 12 hours to help rectify any problems or answer any questions about features and functionality. The only issue I ever had with them was trying to clarify, when they previously advertised that they posted on 200+ job boards, if that meant that your job would for sure be posted on each job board. Turns out, by the way, that they only guarantee distribution, not posting

Accurate is much better. The most thorough background check company I have ever used.

ZipRecruiter is less costly than LinkedIn plus you get the candidate's resume with their contact information immediately. You know that the candidate is interested as well, so scheduling for an interview is easier.
