Have you checked your references lately?

Former employers are often happy to share their thoughts on a past employee, but they may not always say what you think they will. We make actual phone calls to your former bosses & HR. Conducted discreetly, our reference check process gives your reference's word-for-word commentary.

Your service saved my husband’s career. Even though he won his lawsuit for wrongful termination and age discrimination, his references were keeping him from doing what he loved, working. Your company provided us with the evidence we needed to avoid another court battle. Thank you.
