In addition to our standard questions, we encourage our clients to provide customized questions for us to use when we contact both past employers and references... Questions that you believe are critical to ensuring the applicant's knowledge of your specific industry.

Records are searched using on-site resources as opposed to less current databases and will generally list all offenses and dispositions. Federal, State, and Civil investigative searches are also available.  Statewide records are available through the State Repositories in most states; however, these facilities are not always current in their information.
