Saved me so much time when I was hiring contractors!

2018-09-14

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.

Pros

They send an e-mail to your potential contractors or employees. After clicking the link in the e-mail your contractors can fill in all of their personal information on their own time.

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.

Easy to use

2019-12-06

Checkr is great and gives great reports whenever the background checks come back.

Pros

We use it integrated with Planning Center which makes it super easy for our volunteers to get background checked and have it documented in their PCO profile

Cons

It is a little costly, but it is worth the money for the ease in how it works with Planning Center Online

Fast, Affordable, and Easy

2018-10-27

We worked with customer support as we were having a hard time activating our service, but we just didn't read the documentation correctly, and with the help of support got it up and running very quickly.

Pros

It works with our database and integrates so that we are able to focus on the client and not focus on checking off a box.

Cons

I haven't been able to find anything wrong yet.

Great background check program for volunteer program!

2019-12-05

This has been an easy, affordable option for our homeschool co-op.

Pros

All I have to input is my volunteers’ email. No more gathering and storing and imputing sensitive personal information!

Cons

It’s connected to another service so I can’t use it independently.

Best Background Check Software

2019-05-12

We had an outdated program to run background checks with, but it was slow, pricey, and not very reliable. It was also not integrated to any other program, so once the results were out, they could be lost and we would have to pay all over again. Checkr solves all this and more. I am so excited to be using this program now.

Pros

I was easily able to run a background check on someone already in my database. It’s also a lot cheaper for the type of background check you’re getting than some other companies around.

Cons

However, everything else was a easy and straight forward.

Simple & Intuitive Background Checker

2019-10-17

We background check all managerial level associates.

Pros

We got a response on an applicant within I believe 24 hours -- SUPER QUICK and VERY COMPREHENSIVE!

Cons

I did not like it that we had one applicant who had used an alias and this caused a plethora of issues because he also had a common name.

Easily integration with Planning Center

2020-03-11

My church has to regularly run a background check against any new volunteers and this tool (Checkr) allows us to do it with minimal effort and yet still have all the confidence in the result. We also had the issue of only certain people knowing how to use our previous background check resource and it became a bit of an issue trying to understand who had been screened and who still needed to be checked. Checkr solved all of that

Pros

The biggest perk to using Checkr is the integration with Planning Center.

Cons

We have been using Checkr for about 3 months and I have yet to find and issue or probably with it. It meets my every need

Simple and affordable

2019-05-09

I work at a church, so background checks are important for people working in various areas of ministry. Running background checks with Checkr is a breeze and affordable thanks to the different options and tiers they have available to choose from. That’s great because, for example, you don’t have to spend the money on a driving record check for someone who isn’t going to drive for you.

Pros

Background checks seem like a scary thing at first, but Checkr was easy to set up and easy to learn thanks to their wonderful support documentation.

Cons

I haven’t found anything to not like about it yet. Granted, I haven’t run too many background checks yet, but so far, it’s been a very positive experience.
