Momma only got the job because of NO work history.
Congratulations to "Momma" for getting hired and not having to deal with the total fiasco know as Hire Right constantly demanding W-2`s, tax forms, and still being unable to "verify" anything. I lost a decent position this past February because of... Read More »

Easy peasy, Momma's getting a J.O.B!!
I have a job offer pending this background report from a major hospital network. I completed my info and submitted it. They only wanted the past 5 years which was simple since I've been a stay at home mom for the past 7 and just worked at my churc... Read More »

Do NOT use this service. I was in a rush to complete background checks because our vendor required it. As our small organization had grown, we never had implemented a standarized screening process. I called a few reputable places, but the wait t... Read More »

Absolutely worthless
They could not do a simple check of my employment history or School Records. Something that took me 5 minutes to verify with the same information that I provided HireRight. It's my belief that they are outsourcing their work to India (based on the... Read More »

Total incompetence
HireRight was contracted to perform a background check on me going back 7 years. They were unable to confirm the simplest of records, either educational or work related, including understanding that 7 years prior to 2015 does not include 1984! I h... Read More »

Worthless Waste of Time
After letting my Paychex rep convince me to use this service, I filled out the paperwork, finally got my sign on. I input all my employees but kept getting a pop up saying they needed to credential me. Finally got the credentialing info, tried to... Read More »

Zero Stars
This company, as so many others have said, is completely useless. I have been waiting on a background check for over three weeks now. I am consistently asked for contact numbers from my previous employer, where I've worked for the past 13 years. I... Read More »

Incompetent and Difficult to Work with.
Hireright did my background check and did no follow-ups with references. Basically, if they don't get an email back immediately with their 2 page reference, they then say it's your responsibility to contact them and ensure delivery. Like anybody e... Read More »

Completely Incompetent
I was being hired by a large multinational that use HireRight. I basically had to do all the work on HireRight's behalf. They were so incompetent that they could not check my references from 2 years ago, even when I provided them with the HR conta... Read More »

HireRight...Beyond RIDICULOUS!!!
After having over 25 plus years of employment and background checks for potential jobs, never have I come across a more inept company when it comes to verifying important information for employment. Just when you think you are finished answering a... Read More »

They are established to humiliate the hard earned qualified candidates at the end of their nerve wracking process. They turn the whole process very uncomfortable and like other reviewers mentioned they ask you to provide them with your confidentia... Read More »

You will lose candidates if you make them deal with Hire Right - Waste of Time!
This company is a total joke. They don't do the background check, they just contact the applicant and request w-2's. After I filled out the information providing the phone numbers of the HR dept of my former employer they contacted me and requeste... Read More »

Pretty Good Experience
I made the mistake of reading the thousands of reviews regarding this organization and about gave myself a stroke. The process (specifically the drug test) was extremely long. They have no sense of urgency and refuse to contact the phone numbers y... Read More »

This company is a joke.
If you are unable to accurately do a background check, I can save myself the time/effort and give my work history information directly to the HR department for the job I have applied to. This is a large waste of my time, and from the reviews cou... Read More »

Inaccurate Information, unprofessional and unethical
I recently went through a background check with this ridiculous company and it cost me a position that I already had received an offer for. The information they provided my perspective employer was completely inaccurate! They have me listed at 10... Read More »

I'm not sure what the big deal is about all of the negative reviews. It appears to be a lot of job applicants who are ignorant about the background check process. Yeah, HireRight asked for my W-2, but that wasn't that difficult to provide. I spoke... Read More »

Unprofessional, unethical, unreliable, immoral and void of any value!
I have spent nearly 2 decades in IT with most as a contractor. I have been through numerous background checks and HireRight has been completely and absolutely without any merit or professional quality. They request items under the law they can't,... Read More »
