Getting Started with VeriFirst Background ScreeningAfter a decade of writing this blog, we're proud to have dedicated weekly readers. We hope to have helped with hiring, compliance, and getting through the challenges of the past few years. If you're reading here, thank you for sticking with us. Now, maybe you’re curious about what we can offer your business. 

Just what can you expect when you choose VeriFirst as your background screening provider?

Employee Screening Consultation

Our FCRA certified client representatives are available to help you decide which background screening searches you need. We're also transparent about turnaround time and clear about compliance. As we’ve been helping our clients for over two decades, we make it a point to stay on top of federal and state regulations.

Background Check Costs

After we’ve helped you decide which types of searches you will require, based on a number of factors including job type, department, and risk assessment; VeriFirst will provide a price quote that is itemized for each background check. There are no monthly minimum requirements or reoccurring annual fees. Each quote is personally generated to meet your precise requirements.

Customer Agreement

To activate your account, we require that you review and sign the VeriFirst customer agreement and terms and conditions located here: Get Started. Once complete, a VeriFirst representative will contact you to finalize the activation. Generally, to issue access to VeriFirst data - the following will be required to comply with Federal regulations:

  • Account Registration Form (includes company information and your permissible purpose)
  • Copy of your company’s Business License and/or Articles of Incorporation
  • If ordering Credit History Reports, a 15-minute onsite visit (at your primary place of business) will be scheduled

Activation and Test Screen

Once your account is activated, the VeriFirst customer support team will run a test screen in your account. You are not billed for this, as it is strictly a test case to ensure your account has been properly connected. The test applicant we typically use is “Joanne Hutchinson”. Again, there is no charge for this screen.

Establish User Credentials

Within 24 hours of activation, our Customer Support department will send you an email notification with your initial account access (Username and Password). Once this is complete, you can set up an unlimited number of additional users. Each user can have their own level of access that you define. You can also restrict who can see your company’s screening activity by user.
