With our essential criminal records package, all the counties, statewide indexes, federal courts, and sex offender registries where the applicant has resided for the past seven years will be searched for a fraction of the cost charged by our competitors.


You need candidate verification and screenings now, and we deliver. We understand the fast-paced nature of the HR services industry. More importantly, we also understand the need for complete and thorough results for pre-employment screening, verification, and drug tests. Our HR services, reports, and dissemination are all customized to meet your needs.


Our customer service is customized and one-on-one. We do not use voicemail or automated answering systems during business hours. We provide assistance to all HR services with compliance issues for adverse actions, or if you prefer, we can handle the adverse action procedures, communications, and correspondence for you.


Unlike our competitors, we don’t rely entirely on public databases for our results. We deliver accurate information, every time. Every pre-employment screening assignment is a combination of automated searches and thorough fact checking and verification aided by our nationwide network of researchers who cover every county, state, and federal court in the U.S.


At KRESS, compliance with local, state, and federal laws is our top priority. For KRESS and your business to remain 100-percent compliant, we begin by verifying your business. This only takes 24 hours.


Whether you’re ordering 10 or 10,000 background checks or drug tests a year, we have dozens of packages to choose from. We can do basic employment screens or create a comprehensive HR services package that includes background checks, drug screening, verification and more.


Once your business’ account is created, we’ll need consent from all your candidates to remain 100-percent FCRA compliant. We take care of this for you. All we need is your candidates’ email addresses!


All of your candidates’ results are in the same place, and they’re easy to understand. You will also have access to our Automated Adverse Action system, which makes it easy to stay compliant when a report has adverse information.
