Overall Satisfaction with HireRight

We are using HireRight for our background checks for the entire organization. This enables us to have an integrated background check vendor with our applicant tracking system. HireRight provides our potential new hires the ability to complete all the information to begin the background check on an easy to use, web interface.


  • Integrates with our applicant tracking system, providing seamless data transfers between systems.
  • Possesses easy UI for potential new hires.
  • Has a easy dashboard to view and track the progress of each persons' background check.


  • The individuals at HireRight who are completing the screens can be very aggressive in obtaining the information.
  • Both a pro and a con, but they at times consider a slight inaccuracy as a discrepancy and flag it.
  • It has been a positive business decision to move from our previous background check vendor for two main reasons, cost and electronic submission/tracking system.
We have utilized First Advantage in the past and the issues were with using a paper process, the HR team needing to input all of the potential new hire's information, and long delays in turn around times on applicant screens. With HireRight, they have removed these obstacles for both our customers and internal employees.
One of the other factors in deciding to move forward with HireRight was their ability to check international applicants. They are able to verify both education and criminal records in countries outside of the US. The ability to pick packages and a la carte is valuable as well. For first time individuals in the workforce, it can be over the top as they have no info to verify.
