Chose GoodHire
GoodHire was our go-to for a long time, and will always stand out to me as an excellent vendor. We had to move on however, when our needs changed and we required bulk background checks which they could not provide. Otherwise, I think Goodhire does a fantastic job and makes for …

Checkr
Checkr is streamlining and automating the background check process, which is a tremendous benefit for a small HR team who typically doesn't have the bandwidth to manually conduct education verifications or criminal searches, but hires in a massive scale. Checkr nicely integrates with my ATS, Payroll, and security monitoring platform for SOC 2 compliance, making things more efficient, especially with a small HR team. Ordering background checks takes only a couple of clicks.

After confirming a candidate's information, they marked. The highlighted background checks' suspiciousness was decreased with a bit of additional information and intuition, and they turned out to be fine. Whether it be by email, phone, or chat, their customer care is really helpful. We use Gmail, which is linked to our GoodHire account, and we get answers quickly.

We have not used any services other than Checkr. We started using Checkr over a year ago and have had no need to try other services. Checkr provides us with the services we need in an easy, complete format. Background / Criminal history checking are our primary use of Checkr and it provides these seamlessly.

Our previous vendor had slow turn around times, often we would see background checks taking weeks to return results to us. We would also note discrepancies in state compliance and have to point them out to be addressed by their system. Good Hire seems to be more compliant with state regulations and have had quicker processing times for our end users

Return on Investment
Checkr
  • It is sped up our onboarding process quite a bit since background checks now happen at a pretty fast pace.
  • Integration with our ATS has also kept our workflow simple, so my team doesnt need to get training on a separate software and manage multiple logins.
