Your company recognizes the importance of background checks for employment, so you signed up with a screening provider. Now, how does the pre-employment screening process work? Here’s what to expect when working with Metrodata Services.
We’ll Develop a Package to Fit Your Needs
When it comes to background checks, one size does NOT fit all. For example, a school has different pre-employment screening requirements than an accounting firm. And an in-home health worker should have a more comprehensive background check than an overnight shelf stocker in a department store. However, some providers only offer set packages. As a result, you may end up either running an incomplete screening or paying for services you didn’t want. At Metrodata Services, Inc., we pride ourselves on the ability to create customized packages for our clients. We’ll take the time to review your business’s needs as well as federal, state, and local regulations. So, you can rest assured, your company will be hiring only the best people while also maintaining a compliant workplace.
We’ll Set Up a Straightforward System for You to Use
To make the background check process as effortless as possible for both your organization and your potential employees, Metrodata has an easy-to-use online system. We’ll set up a link that includes all the required paperwork including an FCRA compliant consent form. Your potential hires will receive an email, follow the link, and respond to a handful of basic questions. Then, the background check process will be underway.
You Can View Your Reports
Depending on the types of screenings, results may take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. (Metrodata can give you a better idea of the timeframe when we create your package.) Once the process is complete, you’ll be able to log on to Metrodata’s online portal and view the results at your convenience.
We’ll Help You Interpret the Results
Although Metrodata tries to make our background screening reports as easy-to-read as possible, sometimes you’ll have additional questions. Just give us a call. Our operation specialists would be happy to clarify any information for you.
You’ll Receive Ongoing Support
Let’s say, the pre-employment screening results are in. And uh-oh, you think you have a problem. Now what? If you don’t hire someone based solely on their background check, you could run into legal problems for neglecting to follow FCRA standards or various state laws such as New York State’s Article 23-A. Fortunately, Metrodata will continue to offer support and advice throughout the process. So, your organization can remain compliant before, during, and after the background check goes on file.
