Background Check Basics
- What’s included in a background check?
Typical pre-employment background checks include identity verification and criminal records searches, but screening varies depending on industry and specific job requirements. Other common requirements for pre-employment screening can be education and employment verifications, driving records, credit checks, and drug testing.
- What information is needed to run a background check?
Different companies require different information to be collected from the candidate but usually include full name, address, date of birth, and social security number. Other background checks call for the candidate’s driver’s license number and educational and employment history.
- How long does a background check take?
On average, a background check takes between one to three business days, however, the length of time can vary depending on what type of screen is being run. There are several factors that can cause a delay in the screening process as well, including court closures or delays.
- How much does it cost to run a background check?
The cost of a background check depends on the scope and breadth of the potential desired screen. In general, a reliable background screening package that measures up to FRCA standards costs companies between $30-$100, depending on how in-depth your organization wants to screen. A unique package specifically tailored to your organization is the best way to save money, maintain compliance, and improve your hiring efforts. Verified First offers background screening packages specific to many different industries, including a la carte products like drug testing, verifications, I-9, and more.
