Pros
I have great confidence in Checkr's ability to get me a quick report and link the information to profiles on our database.
I can log into People on Planning Center and will go to the volunteers profile in People and then execute the background check from the view. It's awesome and a perfect perk to using planning center.
Great customer service from set up, to billing, to use of product. Any time I've needed to contact customer support, they have been friendly and helpful.
Cons
For the way that we use Checkr, there are no things that I dislike about Checkr at this time.
The drop down arrow when there is so many re-run BGC is confusing.
When I first started using it, the software would crash.

Awesome experience. No paper work, any time results, more to digitialization, no need to store verification forms physically for future use prospective.

Pros

With this amazing software, can do background verification online. Saves time and more accurate. Just need to fill some basic information and required information is just a click away.

Cons

This is a new concept however not so popular. Need marketing of this.

Checkr has been a great asset to our ministry

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

Integration with Planning Center, ease of use, ability to track the status of background process or if one is expired.

Cons

I wish we could add context to the initial email so that our volunteers know that it is coming from our organization and to be clear on what information we check and that we are using Checkr for our volunteers not for a job application. This has caused some confusion lately.

Customer Service discrepancies & constant issues; nobody Account Manager

Reviewed 8 months ago

Not a great first impression for us. A lot of email communication which is a time suck. No available customer service to remedy your issues in a timely manner. We've made the decision to look for a company that provides an account manager or live support.

Pros

The product is fairly easy to use and turn-around was very quick

Cons

1 - The Employment Verification section is all over the place. The timeline and description of what their process is within the background check results is very confusing due to the language/descriptions and time stamps they use. It really doesn't make a ton of sense and they need to fix it. You also have no idea what time zone they are referencing. 2- lack of CS teams understanding of our needs/inaccurate...

Advantage and disadvantage of Checkr

Reviewed a year ago

Their is no problem at all, if I'm being honest, I wish that the Checkr will go directly on the candidate page like so we do not need to search them manually because sometimes, it can eat all our time and our AHT will be affected and we don't want that. However, using Checkr on check the BGC on our drivers is its very punctual and easy to use and utilize.

Pros

The features that is most impactful, specially to us, is the background check. Using this we are able to see their BGC result and assess what action we will take based on that. Also, we do not need to send the details of the result of their BGC because Checkr have an automated message that comes through the driver's email once their BGC result is ready or if they have an issue regarding to that. Plus, Checkr is so easy and convenient to use, whether you are first timer. We can definitely process easily with the help of this software.

Cons

The cons that I can see on using Checkr is that when we search the drivers manually using their name, email, or even UUID, it sometimes occupy alot of our time. It takes 2-3 minutes before its shows up. Furthermore, since we are assisting drivers and we usually need to see the candidate page and not the report page. It will be more less hassle if we click the driver's BGC from their application that route us to candidate page instead of report page.

Saved me so much time when I was hiring contractors!

Reviewed 4 years ago

Using Checkr I was able to focus my time and energy on running my marketing business, rather than chasing down personal information and gathering forms around town from contractors for weeks. Checkr sped up my hiring process by several weeks because I was able to get background check results online within days.

Pros

I loved the fact that Checkr handled the whole background check process for me completely online. I saved so much time when I was hiring contractors to service the online leads I was getting. All I had to do was input some basic information about my contractors like their e-mail address, and Checkr started doing the rest for me right away. They send an e-mail to your potential contractors or employees....

Cons

If I had to find a negative, I would say that the platform seemed very new and it offered very basic features, services, and a very simple design. The platform is being updated all the time though and I was able to perform a variety of different types of background checks efficiently.
