We Understand Background Checks In Retail

Screen your job candidates easily—and at high volume.

As an industry with one of the highest employee turnover rates, hiring efficiency is your top priority. And that goes for background checks, too.  

Challenges: On a worldwide basis, your industry employs more people than almost any other sector. You also put up with an exceptionally high turnover rate—and must continuously process very high volumes of new job applications. Seasonally, and often at scale. Sales associates, cashiers, and customer service representatives. Buyers, merchandisers, and advertising managers. Branch and store manager and their assistants. Inventory control specialists and logistics coordinators. Moreover, you rarely have the margins for high pay and career planning – which just increases churn. Those are tough challenges, but we have solved them for other retail entities.

Experience: We are experts at supporting retail companies—in great measure because we know your challenges and have world-class background screening solutions, packages, systems, and capabilities that streamline retail hiring and screening processes. Our retail clients include, for example, malls and supermarkets; department, specialty, and convenience stores; home goods sellers; automobile supply stores; and retail banking and professional services, among many others.

Outcomes: Let us help you establish a rapid, high-volume background check process that gives your HR teams centralized controls and a consistent candidate experience, whether you hire and screen candidates for one branch, division, or business—or hundreds. With comprehensive screening, we can help you reduce your turnover, increase your application-to-hire rate, and establish a healthy pipeline of talent for dozens of retail positions.
