Here are the most Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) by Job Applicants & Employers:
How do I decide whether it is worth the price?
That depends on the value you place upon your accomplishments and your future. For a person who understands the advantage of furthering his or her professional career with a verified job and credential history, the fees are minimal. The cost of each verification is about the same as going to the movies and buying popcorn.
Think of all of the sundries and things you have spent money on just in the last month and ask yourself, "Are any of those going to benefit me the rest of my life?" "Is any other thing I just dropped $20 on going to help me better my job or career, so I can support myself or my family better?"
How far back should I go when creating Verifications?
Most employers keep records on past employees for between 5 and 10 years.
How private is my information?
I am an employer? How do I use MyESRCheck.com?
First: if an applicant sends you a resume or application with the MyESRcheck.com seal and access information, you know you are dealing with a serious and qualified candidate. Use the e-mail and access code the applicant provides to view the verified background check online.
Second: You can use MyESRcheck.com as a way to vet vendors. Simply require your vendors to come to MyERScheck.com. An employer can set up a vendor package ahead of time and provide it to vendors who will come to our site.
Third: MyESRcheck.com provides a simplified background check process. Sign up with MyESRcheck.com and we will provide a package code. Send your applicant to our site with an Employer ID and Package Name and we do the rest. The legally required release is done online for a completely paperless and hassle-free system.
We are a school where background checks are needed due to licensing requirements. How do we do that?
With MyESRcheck.com, it is simple for schools to have applicants complete their own background check. Simply sign up with MyESRcheck.com, and we will design a standard package that fits your needs. Give your student our website address along with an Employer ID and Package Name and we handle everything else! And, there is no paperwork involved for the students. It is all handled online (with the exception of certain international background checks).
What happens if I disagree with some of the information?
There may be occasions when an applicant disagrees with information obtained by MyESRcheck.com. Here is how that works; If you are doing your own check, simply do not give access to the employer until you contact MyESRcheck.com and let us know what you disagree with, why, and supply some information we can use to resolve the matter. If you are sent to this site by a school or employer, you have rights to have the matter re-investigated under the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).
Are there ever any surprise costs?
NO! When consumers sign up and check out, they know their total cost before they approve it. There are never any additional or surprising costs. Likewise, employers can also set up packages and know the cost structure ahead of time.
