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.

Great software for conducting background checks

Reviewed 4 years ago

Overall, its an awesome platform to integrate with your system for performing the hard manual work of doing background checks online.

Pros

Checkr provides a list of properly documented APIs which can be easily integrated with your system for performing background checks. The results shared by the APIs can then be used for making a decision on the candidate based on the background checks

Cons

Not much wrong about this software. It integrated nicely with your systems and for any issues which arise in integration, the customer can help you out for resolving those.

Fast background checks all done online

Reviewed 2 years ago

I love using Checkr, is easy, has multiple reports you can run, makes onboarding easier, looks and sounds legit and they keep you informed of the progress.

Pros

Checkr is easy to use, you can send the invite to candidates quickly and effortlessly via email but also send a direct link if needed. The whole process is easy for the user and in most cases, you get results quickly - sometimes in minutes. If the candidate is scheduling an appointment to get a TB test or Physical exam you can check where they scheduled the appointment. It's also possible to resend invited that expired. Search is easy and you can easily take a look if a report is complete. The background check process has clearly mentioned steps and you can track the process live. Checker is giving you an estimate of the duration and they are great at informing users via email whenever they have important updates.

Cons

When sending invites they often end up in the Spam/Junk folder so we need to give a heads up to candidates to check there as well. If sending more than one invite the link in the email will always bring the candidate on the same page (asking to fill in name, surname, contact phone, and email... they get confused when they have to do it over and over clicking on each link in every email they get. I feel Checkr is super busy, with a lot of users, and support is overwhelmed and therefore slow to respond, sometimes takes days/weeks.

Buyer Beware!

Reviewed a year ago

Overall, very negative experience with Checkr.

Pros

They make it very easy to get started and for job applicants to approve their background check.

Cons

Checkr doesn't make it clear that the prices listed on its pricing guide are just starting price (its in a tiny star at the bottom of the page). Nor does it tell you this when you order a background check or even after while they are processing it. You are just slapped with additional fees weeks later when they issue your monthly statement. By then, you've already requested additional background...

Saved me so much time when I was hiring contractors!

Reviewed 6 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.
