Easiest background checker around!!

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: Checkr gives me the chance to look at the whole picture of someone I’m hiring giving me the chance to make a sound and safe hiring decision for the company.

Pros:

How easy it was to navigate around the site it wasn’t a long drawn out process like other sites!

Cons:

The lay out could have been better. Things placed in different areas than they were.

Easy to use and good communication with customer support.

Denied for no good reason

1.0 last month New

Comments: Horrible. Turned me down for doordash and ubereats over charges i was never charged with that don’t even have anything to do with what I’d be doing for them and I had talked to ubereats and doordash and they thought it should’ve been approved after challenging it with checkr, but nope. Checkr doesn’t like when you’ve been proven innocent in court. The cases just popping up as things you’ve gone through is enough for them to deny you work for another company that just uses them for background check approvals

Pros:

Nothing. This has been a horrible experience and I wouldn’t recommend anyone use you for background check approval services.

Cons:

The things you base approval on. Shouldn’t deny people a job for another company over things they were never charged with that also have absolutely nothing bad towards the jobs they’re applying for.

Wonderful software solution for a variety of businesses.

5.0 7 months ago

Comments: We have loved the ability to submit hundreds of background checks and to quickly and easily see their status/results.

Pros:

I like that Checkr is an easy-to use and well-supported online solution. We really appreciate the ability to pick and choose what features we want and that Checkr has a pricing solution for any combination of features.

Cons:

As with any background check system it can be frustrating when dealing with improper background check information or errors that come up when requesting a background check due to user (applicant) input error.

Vast Improvement Over Sterling

5.0 6 months ago

Pros:

Much more agile, easy to use, and cheaper than Sterling - a far, far better user experience for both the administrator and candidate.

Cons:

Nothing to note! Great customer service and lots of attention in the onboarding.
