Great service with simple API setup

The easy-to-use API and webhooks enable our organization to process hundreds of background checks automatically. We would not be able to run at the scale we are without this ability.

PROS

Being able to configure webhooks directly in the dashboard makes it a snap to connect Checkr to external Applicant Tracking Systems. This makes implementation possible even in low- or no-code organizations.

CONS

Some of the reports and background check results can be difficult to interpret. Thankfully customer service walked us through all of it.

Reasons for switching to Checkr

We were processing huge amounts of background checks and verifying them all manually. We needed an automated solution in order to grow.

Great choice for Planning Center integration

PROS

We use this as an integration with Planning Center to background check our many volunteers. It is quick and easy to use. I like that it provides an estimate of when the background check will be completed, allows you to cancel the invitation, and provides tags to filter the information for easy budget tracking.

CONS

The thing I wish they would change most is remove lines that contain cancelled invitations. It is a waste of space. I would also like to see the tags as a column on the Candidates page.

Reasons for switching to Checkr

We needed something that integrated with Planning Center.

Misleading product descriptions

The product descriptions say that the background checks are sufficient for school district employees and teachers. However they do not provide the required fingerprinting level check for these position. So I wasted money that they will not refund on BG checks that don't actually meet the minimum standard for the industry. The customer service was no help and displayed no interest in resolving my issues.

PROS

I liked the integration with Gusto and the ease of use

CONS

Terrible customer service, bad product descriptions, and inadequate level of background checking
