While some consumer reporting agencies offer both employment and tenant reports, others specialize in one area. This article is a look at a variety of employment screening services, and strives to answer the question: Does specializing in one area of the background screening industry improve the quality of screening that is provided?
The simplest way to dissect multiple consumer reporting agencies’ processes is in comparison to another company’s. Here, we will compare the report options, customer service, and membership with professional screening associations between five companies and AAA Credit Screening Services (AAACSS); while remaining as objective as possible to give a fair overview of what each company has to offer.
This chart represents a summary of our findings:
AAA Credit Screening Services offers tenant and employment credit and background screening services. In addition to a diverse selection of tenant and employment background reports, AAA Credit Screening offers live phone answering customer service and a turnaround time for e-mail contact under one business hour. A test e-mail that was submitted during business hours via AAA Credit Screening’s website contact form received a response in less than 10 minutes.
AAA Credit Screening is an active member with the NAPBS, as well as the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and the National Association of Residential Property Managers (NARPM). Of the five companies, AAA Credit Screening is the only company with fully cross-trained employees who are FCRA certified background screeners. AAA Credit Screening Services is also the only company that offered Worker’s Compensation Reports, and IRS Income Checks, two reports which can be crucial in the employment and tenant screening processes.
