We have probably all been through a background check before, most likely as a new employee or a tenant. You likely already have a general understanding of what is involved. However, there are a lot of details and different options when it comes to a full background check, covering not only who performs the screening, but also what information you receive at the end of the process and what you can legally do with that information.
3rd Degree Screening is a comprehensive background check service, and we are here to help make screening your employees and tenants simple. We have the resources and the experience to give you the data you need so you can make more informed decisions and create a safe and secure workplace, school, or property.

Background Checks: the Nitty Gritty
Not every background check is the same. Here at 3rd Degree Screening, we can customize our services to give you precisely the information you need, so you don’t have to pay for what you don’t. Tell us more about your business, your industry, your concerns, and the position in question, and we can tailor our services to help.
School districts hiring new educators, for example, will want thorough employment and education verification services, so they can confirm a candidate’s qualifications. A landlord or property management company, on the other hand, can turn to 3rd Degree Screening for reference checks and an eviction record. The options are practically endless, and a dedicated service like 3rd Degree can offer you results on drug testing, criminal records, driving records, and much more. Contact our team today to find out how we can help you learn what you need to know about your newest candidate!
How It Works
Contrary to what some people may believe, there isn’t a secret master database with everyone’s information on it that background check services like 3rd Degree can use like a search engine. In fact, a full background check typically pulls from several different resources, as well as good old legwork, contacting old employers or landlords and confirming basic information. We work hard to ensure that we can give you the data you’re looking for – and that that data is accurate to the best of our ability – and it takes more research and effort than you may think.
Why Initiate a Background Check?
You probably have an answer already as to why background screenings are important, but let us lay it all out on the table. Someone’s resume or application can only tell you so much, especially if they decide to be untruthful when filling out the form, and the information that’s left out can be essential to making the best possible decision for your company.
A full background check is essential for those applying for jobs in high-security environments, or for candidates applying for high-trust positions like that of an elementary school teacher. A background screening can help you confirm their qualifications, get an idea of their reliability and trustworthiness, as well as inform you of any past mistakes they have made that might indicate future behavior. A piece of paper with these kinds of facts is certainly no substitute for getting to know someone, but it is an important first step to welcoming someone into your property or workplace.
Why Hire a Background Check Service?
As we mentioned, finding all the information you need to make a good decision on an applicant isn’t always easy. You have to know where to go and how to find pertinent data, as well as how to evaluate what you find for accuracy. There are also some legal stipulations you need to be aware of when handling someone’s personal identification information.
A professional background check service like 3rd Degree Screening makes vetting your candidates straightforward. Once you give us the initial paperwork, such as written consent to a background check and the applicant’s name and social security number, then we can leverage our expertise to find the records you need. We’ll do the legwork — all you have to worry about is making the final decision.
