Order background checks
To order background checks, click Candidates on your navigation bar and then select a candidate from the list.
Click the candidate's Private tab.
In the Checkr section, begin typing a work location for the candidate, then select a location from the dropdown results. A valid work location is required to ensure the correct disclosure forms are sent to the candidate based on the compliance laws in different states.
Next, select a package from the Package dropdown.
When finished, click Export to Checkr to initiate a background check order for the candidate.
The candidate will receive an email from Checkr directing them to a Checkr-hosted website to provide the information Checkr needs to run their background check.
View a candidate's background check status
Once completed by the candidate, most background check results will be available within 24 hours, but the time to complete can range from a few minutes to a few weeks depending on the type of check ordered, the geographic location of the candidate, and local courthouse operations.
The candidate's background check status will be displayed on the Private tab on Greenhouse Recruiting for your review.
Click Checkr Report to review the full background check on Checkr.
