What Makes GVS Right for you?

Studies show that employers spend little or no time checking the statements applicants make on their applications. Some employers make only a few perfunctory calls to previous employers. Most make no calls at all.

That’s understandable. Most companies are unwilling to provide anything beyond a confirmation of employment dates and it seems a waste of time to call the personal references provided by the applicant. Checking public records for criminal convictions or Worker’s Compensation histories can be a monumental task if you don’t know where to start. Maintaining the appropriate data bases and on-line subscriptions required to obtain driver’s reports and credit profiles are tedious and expensive.

GVS is experienced in developing standardized nationwide screening for large companies concerned with multi-jurisdictional applications, and also meets the specific demands of the small business needing a hand while making hiring decisions. To protect you, we continually strive to stay abreast of changing legislation as it relates to employee hiring procedures and screening.

Education Verification

  • Verification of schools attended, degrees, diplomas, dates attended

Many positions in your company require a specific level of education. With GVS, you do not have to take the applicant’s word regarding his or her education level. GVS has a staff ready to verify schools attended, diplomas, degrees, certificates and dates of attendance. Although some requests may be completed by telephone, others require a written or faxed request. When transcripts are not required, an educational verification provides a quick confirmation. Additional charges may be incurred for the following services: transcript fees, registrar fees, language line, premium time calls, international long distance or any additional expenses incurred in retrieving the education information you requested. Turn around time is from 24 hours to 2 weeks depending on the school’s procedures. Please provide the applicant’s name and information requiring verification. A signed release from the applicant is required in most cases.

Employment Reference

  • Verification of dates of employment, salary, reason for termination, eligibility of rehire, etc.

Many applicants do not provide accurate information related to the hiring decisions. Our staff is trained in the skills of interviewing techniques, approaching employers, and evaluating responses to determine whether further inquiry into a specific area is necessary. Upon request, we can help develop a specific list of questions that pertain to your particular industry or situation. All information is returned in a easy to understand format. Additional charges may be incurred for the following services: 900 verification, language line, premium time calls, international long distance or any additional expenses incurred in retrieving the education information you requested. Please provide the applicant’s name and any relevant information that needs verification. A signed release may be required, depending on the employer being notified.

Criminal Conviction Records Search

  • Felony convictions
  • Misdemeanor convictions (most cases)
  • Federal U.S. District Court Records

Criminal conviction record searches are available in three to seven year increments depending on the county and/or state. Criminal records are available in every county within every state. If necessary, information can be returned immediately; however, normal turnaround time is 48 to 72 hours. GVS conducts either a physical on-site or a direct on-line search from each courthouse. This enables us to provide the most accurate and up-to-date information available. Some states offer statewide searches, which are also available upon request. To request a criminal conviction record, please provide the applicant’s name, date of birth (D.O.B.), social security number, and the city/state or county you wish us to search. A signed release is not required.
