We recommend:

  • Basic level for hourly staff;
  • Standard level for Management positions; and
  • Premium level for Executive Management.

We charge a nominal admin fee of $10 on top of these costs. This is to cover our time spent setting up the check, keeping an eye on the progress, and reporting any negative results back to you. 

What do you need to run a Background Check?

To get started, we just need:

  • the full legal name and email address of the candidate; and
  • Your selection of reporting level (Basic, Standard, or Premium).

What is the turnaround time on getting the results?

Goodhire takes 1-4 business days to return results, depending on the level of search selected. Deeper search levels take longer, and the results can also be delayed if negative information turns up because additional investigation is then required.

What else do I need to know?

Background checks can be very useful, but they're not always necessary and utilizing them can be a liability if you're uninformed. The use of background checks is an area ripe for possible discrimination claims, so if you choose to move forward with one, make sure your decision is based on objective and fair criteria. If you need advice on what counts as objective and fair, our HR experts are here to help.
