Shelley Weiss, Human Resources Manager
Val Strough Cypress Coast Auto Group
"Previously we had been at the mercy of antiquated ways of gathering information on our
potential hires. We considered getting that info in two days a quick turn-around, but often we
would sit three days, sometimes longer. By getting these results in a matter of minutes, we have
completely streamlined our hiring process by simply making the switch to Verified First. I was
shocked to learn that those third party vendors also had license to "edit" the info they provide.
The kicker- we are paying much less for faster results!"
James McDole, Safety Director
Bryant A/C, Heating, Electrical, Plumbing
"Since we started using Verified First to do our background checks, we have had no complaints
from any of our locations in California. The personnel working at Verified First have always taken
care of our needs. This has a been a good experience for my company."
Richard Brower, Human Resource Manager
"Before I discovered Verified First I used two different companies to do our background checks
and MVR checks. It would normally take three days to get all of the information back. in one
particular case it took over a month to get the background check back. I was tired of waiting and
almost hired a registered sex offender because it took so long. Now with Verified First I get
result usually in minutes, never days. I would not switch back for anything. Thank you for your
prompt service, it makes my job so much easier."
