Reference Check Service $16.95 ORDER NOW >
(Included in Premier Package)
A reference verification provides an additional level of information on a job applicant, above and beyond what is listed on their resume. Previous employer comments about the applicant’s work ethic and abilities provide a more accurate picture of what the candidate is like at work. In some cases, a manual reference verification will reveal inconsistencies with what the job applicant provided on their resume.
Combined with a full background check, A Good Employee’s reference check service goes a long way to help enhance the process HR professionals must complete when screening an applicant. AGoodEmployee.com conducts a manual reference verification by calling references on your behalf and asking a series of efficient questions that help verify your job candidate’s reputation. Questions can be customized upon request.
Our trained staff hunts down the right person in HR and gathers the following information:
- Company Name
- Employee’s Position
- Date Hired/Start Date
- Date Left/End Date
- Last Pay Increase
- Was the employee on-time?
- Employed Status: full-time, part-time, or seasonal
- Current Wages / Salary
- Any substance abuse problems?
- Did individual work well with others?
- Additional Comments
How long does it take to get back the results of the reference verification?
Typically the entire process takes 2-5 business days. Within 24 hours of placing your order, we will call the previous employer. If we cannot reach the right person right away, we will continue to call the employer once a day for five business days. In some cases, employers may require us to show them the signed authorization from the applicant. We will make sure to contact you and gather the information required to keep the reference verification running smoothly.
A manual reference verification is one of the best ways to uncover how a job applicant performs in the workplace. It also ensures that a candidate has a positive reputation among previous employers and acquaintances. Their past experiences are often a reflection of what their work habits might be like if they work for your company, something a background check alone might not tell you.
