"Affordable, thorough and simple"

What do you like best?

We switched to Checkr from another background check service and have been very pleased with the switch. One of the best features for us is the "peace of mind" someone has when they are the ones entering their personal information instead of sharing it with us on a piece of paper like we used to require.

What do you dislike?

So far there has been nothing not to like. The first time we ran a check that required a county search due to their being a record, the billing was a little confusing. However, it was cleared up with a note to customer service.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We run background checks for volunteers. The background checks are initiated through another application (Planning Center People). The tight integration between Checkr and Planning Center has meant less time spent on data entry and chasing down information in multiple systems.

"Simple to Use- but overreaching"

What do you like best?

The Checkr product is simple and effective for employers - we are able to really dig deep and know our candidates from the inside out. Yes, everyone comes to an interview with a smile and a good attitude, but the ability to know exactly who they are outside of the office on the first day is invaluable.

What do you dislike?

So, this is a little awkward, but the only issue we have had is prospective candidates/employees complaining that they received notice of the background check and that it goes back farther than allowed ( believe 15 years instead of 7) - and also can be a little invasive such as checking the credit score which as an employer I shouldn't/don't care about.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Check out what else is out there. It can be extremely useful but is a little invasive.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving the problem of hiring the wrong people, or hiring someone and that person ending up being someone completely different down the line because of something hidden in their past.

What Background Check solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Working with Checkr"

What do you like best?

Checkr bends over backward when we need something. There are times when we request a customized item and Checkr will do anything they can to make it happen and make it happen quickly in order to meet our deadlines. They also provide informative information that helps with the background check process.

What do you dislike?

There is not much that we dislike at this time. However, there have been rare occasions when we are unable to reach the customer service desk and when we have a need for a timely response it can be frustrating.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In our business, it is critical to fill our orders with qualified candidates quickly. Checkr provides timely results which have allowed us to fill our jobs on-time thus hitting our client goals and achieving our goals.

"Easy-to-use background checks that I don't need to think about"

What do you like best?

It integrates with our HR systems so that there's very little administration overhead. With our old BG check software, we used to "forget" to send out background checks with new hires.

What do you dislike?

Nothing - I wouldn't change anything about the product. It's simple and easy to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use it!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We deal with sensitive data and background checks are essential for customers to trust us with that data. Checkr automates the whole process for us.

"Checkr - Good not great"

What do you like best?

Checkr gives really strong background checks and gives so much information that you can get a real picture of what's happening.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes they go back too far, and cause potential liabilities with their searches. Different states have different rules on this so maybe they can match by employer.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Checkr gets the job done, plain and simple. There could be day to day improvements in the UI for ease of use

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Background checks - easy to use and fast.

"Great tech, inconsistent turnaround time"

What do you like best?

Checkr's dashboard and API integrations. The system is super easy to use and integrates well with our ATS.

What do you dislike?

Turnaround time. We're piloting another provider because the wait time for Checkr's background checks is unpredictable. We've lost a number of potential hires because the turnaround time is extended significantly whenever a ride hailing service floods Checkr with requests.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Checkr to perform criminal background checks on all of our non-exempt employees

"I think it's a decent product, but it needs some more work in terms of support"

What do you like best?

Easy for anyone to use, for both businesses and users. I also think the interface is better than some others I've used

What do you dislike?

We had an issue with the platform that we needed an immediate response for as we had employees who were set to start and background checks that we could not access due to a technical issue. We could not get an immediate response online and their phone number did not allow us to leave messages and no one answered for days.

Also do not like that we do not have customizable background check functions.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Simple background checks that take the function out of our hands.

What do you like best?

The SaaS solution is really flexible, I used it to hire some employees and it was really helpful. In general the collaboration environment was just great.

What do you dislike?

The support service is a little bit slow, I was told it was due to my subscription but it could be get better from my point of view.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are considering a world class solution for background checks, this is the one.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A business problem: poor visibility about checks in my company.

Benefits: A world class process applied in my place.

"Checkr for Small Business Owners"

What do you like best?

The processing time seems to be simplistic. I appreciate the short processing time for most applications as well. I also like the pre-adverse and post-adverse notifications. It further helps to eliminate unworthy canidates from the hiring process.

What do you dislike?

The pricepoint could be lower. However, the software is nice.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to hire trustworthy people who can handle customer sensative data daily.
