How it Works

How it Works

A Good Employee provides an easy to use the system to make the screening process for hiring simple. From registration to hiring, our friendly customer service team is available to guide you through the background check process. Our simple steps ensure you are FCRA compliant and give you the information you need to hire a good employee.


The Federal Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) requires us to certify that you’re using the report for the right reasons. Before ordering your first report, we’ll be in touch with you to verify with you that you are running a report strictly for employment purposes. If needed, we’ll also personally guide you through our system.


Once you’re registered, you can order background screening reports at any time directly from your account. We’ve conveniently bundled the reports that are most commonly ordered, but we can also create a customized package upon request that fits your employment needs. Depending on your industry and company size, you may want to schedule a free consultation with us, to set up the best package possible for your company.

Are you planning to order more than one report? We also offer volume pricing that will help you save on screening. Contact us for special pricing and reports.


A Good Employee’s quick turnaround times help make your hiring process extremely efficient. As soon as a report is available you’ll be notified via email to access it in your account where you can easily manage candidates.

 Some reports can be accessed almost instantly. For example, a previous address history or nationwide criminal search will come back within minutes. More extensive reporting that involves manually checking court records or verifying resume items is completed in only 3-5 business days.


A Good Employee’s easy to understand reports simplify the screening process for hiring. Use your account dashboard to view and print reports available.

Need assistance? Our friendly customer service can explain each report to help you make an intelligent hiring decision. We’ll also provide you with FCRA compliant guidelines and adverse decision letters to ensure you are following appropriate regulations.

After you make your hiring decision, your account dashboard will allow you to access your report history and billing statements. We make it easy to order, decide, and manage.
