Employment verifications allow you to check a candidate's work history as part of a background screening package.
Employment verification searches either the current or most recent employer or up to three past employers depending on the package you choose.
Candidates will be asked to provide their employers, positions, city, state, start and end dates (month and year), contract type, and annual salary.
In this verification, the manager is contacted by phone to verify the information. Three attempts will be made over three days.
If we still haven't received the information, or if the details are not a close match to what the applicant submitted, you'll see a "warning" icon (⚠) appear next to that information.
Once the search is complete, you'll also see a log of notes from the calls made.
Note: Use the log to determine whether a candidate is in consider status because they couldn't be reached (or didn't upload documents), or whether they gave conflicting information to what was verified. Both will trigger a "warning" icon.
