They reached the Himalaya of lack of professionalism
The process lasted several weeks, they basically dropped my file because they could not get an answer from a mail they sent to a generic mail address of my High School. I had to do all the work for them. They leave work at 3pm, lunch break of 1-2h... Read More »

Terrible customer service
Possibly the worst customer service I have encountered. I was repeatedly told to "stop interrupting them" when I attempted to ask a question or clarify information. When I asked for a supervisor I was hung up on. Finally spoke to a supervisor who... Read More »

Incompetent - Terrible
HireRight is completely incompetent. Outsourced talent is incapable of performing the simplest of tasks like verification of education. Language barriers and lack of internal communications and poor documentation result in repeated contacting of e... Read More »

They want you to do the work for them.
Literally every entry on my application has been disputed by these people as unable to be verified. They claim they cannot contact employers when a 15 second Google search yields the exact same number (active # I should add), as the one I provided... Read More »

Lies and misinformation
So, I submitted my background with all the complete documents on Feb 17, 2018 and the wait starts. I am told the ETA is March 03. 2018 which is almost 3 weeks, and the recruiter tells me that your verification is 92% complete. So I ask HireRight w... Read More »

Companies that use HireRight make themselves look less legitimate. Why would they use such an incompetent outsourcing service that places sensitive information at risk? Why are they asking for tax returns (which are kept unencrypted on some databa... Read More »
