GoodHire Review - Sample Review Article of a Web Based Service Provider

GoodHire Review 
A Brief Overview of GoodHire

GoodHire is a US based background checks company that helps businesses expedite their hiring process by providing quick background scans, verification of potential employees’ educational backgrounds, social security numbers, criminal database records, work history, and more. In addition to this basic package, there are add-on features like checks against global terrorists watch-lists, vehicle records database, county court records, international employment and educational records, additional checks for US based candidates like healthcare sanctions, and more.

GoodHire is an ideal background checks platform for companies based in the United States. The international checks offered are only applicable to candidates being employed in, or, living in the US. It offers very flexible pricing packages. Small businesses and large scale platforms can create specific service plans according to their hiring requirements and ask for custom quotes. It is best suited for businesses that require simple background checks against existing criminal, healthcare, medical, and legal records for hiring in the US.

It might not be the best service for businesses on a budget as the basic package, although cheap, doesn’t offer much by way of features, and Add-on features are very expensive.

How Much Do You Need to Shell Out for GoodHire Services? 

For small businesses with limited requirements of up to 50 background checks per year, three different packages are offered 
  • Basic - $29.99
  • Standard - $54.99
  • Premium - $79.99
This fee is not inclusive of the one time set-up fee required to create your account with company profile and other details. Standard and Premium packages attract additional charges whenever a third party database is accessed, but do not have any upper limit on the number of candidates you can look up. 

Other services are charged separately like $9.99 per candidate for the ‘National Criminal Database Search’, ‘$14.99 for ‘Federal Criminal Databases Search’ and so on. 

For businesses with extensive hiring needs exceeding 50 candidates per annum, custom quotes can be sought based on volume of hiring. A dedicated team in San Diego assists users in setting up this premium account.
