How to Tell a Good Screening Provider from a Bad One

Not all pre-employment screening providers are created equal. Some provide the bare minimum service they can get away with and are prone to serious errors and problems that can delay the hiring process indefinitely. Others (like KRESS!) take pride in offering superior customer service and accurate, timely screening results that can be relied upon. When you’re looking for a new screening provider, how can you tell the difference?

Typically, there are three main factors that our prospective clients judge pre-employment screening services on:

  1. Price
  2. Speed
  3. Accuracy

Everyone wants top-notch pre-employment screening service. Unfortunately, some businesses don’t want to pay much for them—or can’t afford to. Many cut-rate screening companies are out there who cater to this demographic with low, low prices. Often, this is the first warning sign that you will not be receiving quality screening services. If a price quoted to you seems almost too good to be true, it almost certainly is. These cut-rate providers do not provide the quality or depth of research to employers to make sound business decisions. They might be cheap, but they’re often a waste of money.

Speed is another selling point for many pre-employment screening providers. Naturally, every business wants to receive their screening results back quickly in order to maintain an edge in a competitive hiring market! Plenty of screening providers promise their clients that they offer the fastest screening results in the industry—next-day results, or even faster, in some cases! Unfortunately, many employers discover only too late that this speed comes at a price: Often, these screening companies are fast because they cut corners. That leads to inaccurate, incomplete screening results that can cost employers lots of time and money to recover from.

Finally, our clients always want to know about the accuracy of their screening results. This is where KRESS shines. As veteran industry leaders in the Houston area, we have forged strong client relationships with large corporations such as ExxonMobil as well as smaller, entrepreneur-focused businesses through an unyielding commitment to the accuracy of our results.
