What We Do

A Premiere Provider of Pre-Employment Services

Pre-Check is an international provider of comprehensive background checks, employment screening, and recruiting solutions. We are committed to anticipating and fulfilling the needs of our clients through superior customer service, providing complete, accurate information in a timely and cost-effective manner assisted by consistently updated technology.

Pre-Check Complete

Using the job seeker’s (applicant’s) Social Security Number and highly sophisticated electronic searches (including a Statewide, multi-state and National Sexual Offender Registry), Pre-Check is able to provide targeted physical searches of both county and municipal court records for criminal activity. Electronic searches incorporate a 50 state sexual offender search, multiple United States Patriot Act searches, to include part of the FBI, US Marshall, and OFAC databases. Pre-Check sends researches to specific locations to physically search for felonies and misdemeanors. All searches within the applicant’s state of residence are searched for one fee. Separate per county fees occur for searches outside the state (see Basic Criminal Search). Requests received by 11:00 am Eastern time are typically completed in 2 to 3 days.

Our reference services provide confirmation of the applicant’s performance for previous employers during the previous ten (10) years. Whenever possible, we contact former supervisors. In the event that we are unable to reach former supervisors, we contact the other professional references provided.

Clients and Testimonials

Pre-Check has been a wonderful background check vendor. They offer the products that we need regarding human capital at an affordable price. The staff is excellent at notifying us when our paperwork is not filled out properly and their responses to email requests are done in a timely manner. Pre-Check’s service to our company is as if they believe that we are their only source of bread and butter which is what keeps us coming back!
Merri GiacomazzoPel LLC | Human Resources
Pre-Check has been a great screening partner for our business. As a regulated business, we must screen all employees before employment and occasionally after hire. Other companies have annual minimums, but we do not always need screening services annually. Pre-Check has been great to work with whenever we need them.
Nick FarleyEclipse Testing
I had been struggling for months trying to find a qualified candidate to fill a sales position at Spooner. I won’t bore you with all the trials and tribulations of the fruitless searches because all that changed when I tried Smart Hire. It was such a relief to have this hiring burden off my desk. All I had to do was answer some easy questions, and before I knew it, really good, qualified applicants were sent directly to my email inbox. All I had to do was set it and forget it!
