As a longtime client with a deep understanding of food and beverage franchises, Dana values the time savings Reliable Background Screening provides during the franchisee and employee background check process.

She states, “Reliable Background Screening has been a great partner providing us with background and credit check services. Reliable has streamlined the process so that we have little to no administrative task involved in the process. Everything is done online and all reporting is electronic, from sending the links to our applicants, to review of the final background and credit reports.

PRIVATE COUNTRY CLUB

The Estancia Club is an internationally recognized, member-owned club located in Scottsdale, Arizona, consistently rated as one of the country’s top golf courses and is currently ranked the ‘Number One Course’ in Arizona by Golf Digest Magazine. The member approval process for this state-of-the-art establishment is guided by the Membership Director, Lori Wacaser.

When Lori became increasingly unhappy with the club’s background screening company of 20+ years, she connected with the Reliable Background Screening team who provided Estancia with a winning proposal they couldn’t refuse. “We didn’t consider anyone else. I just really liked what Reliable had to say, and also the way they handled themselves during the proposal process. They were not at all pushy and simply gave us the information we needed,” she said.

What she likes most about working with Reliable is the overall customer service, saying, “Everyone that I’ve dealt with has been professional. They provide a great service at a reasonable price.” Her enthusiasm speaks volumes, “Reliable provides a much faster response, extremely fast, and the prices are almost half of what we had been paying. We love them!”

HOSPITALITY COMPANY

As the Director of Human Resources at Mountain Shadows and a seasoned hotel human resources professional, Correna Zadoorian had used various background screening companies to screen potential hospitality employees. Correna previously used an automated system to screen her staff, leaving no face-to-face interaction and multiple system malfunctions such as failure to send aliases, married names, and catch user errors. As a result, screenings were unsuccessful and inefficient, causing valuable time to be wasted.

Correna made the switch to Reliable Background Screening and never looked back. She states, “I like the reassurance that I’m getting the correct information, and that there is a second set of eyes checking at all times. You can tell it is a family-owned company, and I know that they care about their customers. Even Rudy, the president, will answer the phone and help me through a problem. They both care about their company.”

EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTION

As Director of Operations for A+ Charter Schools, Damon Norris engaged Reliable Background Screening to develop a thorough background check program for the organization’s staff and volunteers.

Recognizing that fingerprinting, the standard screening tool used by many educational institutions, only covers a certain percentage of crimes, Damon chose to go above and beyond to protect his students and team members. He states, “In my extensive experience in education and business operations, I have seen multiple times where a fingerprint clearance card is not as up to date as it should be. They are good for several years, but in the interim, issues can arise but go unnoticed by an institution. At A+, we chose to invest in a comprehensive screening program to check all employees for anything that could raise a red flag. I always say you can never be too careful when parents are entrusting their kids to your care.”

DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS, A+ CHARTER SCHOOLS

“The partnership that A+ Charter Schools has formed with Reliable Background Screening has helped us keep our students and staff safe. The expertise that Reliable brings to the table makes me feel confident that we can make educated hiring decisions. They have quickly become one of best partners for the school.”

I am extremely pleased with their attention to detail, accuracy, thoroughness, and sense of urgency in supporting our background screening needs. Reliable has my highest recommendation.”

NATIONWIDE EDUCATIONAL FRANCHISE COMPANY

Lightbridge Academy is a national franchise company that provides early childhood education and daycare services, ensuring the educational success and well-being of each child. Reflecting on the service received by the Reliable Team, Chief Development Officer, Mark Mele states, “Reliable Background Screening has proven to be a valuable and necessary tool for our company. Their seamless secure platform makes the process of obtaining and accessing background checks simple.

The process they created for obtaining background checks removes the liability from our company, by not giving me access to the client’s personal data such as Social Security numbers, account numbers and other sensitive client information. The portal they built for us gives me access to the client’s background check once it is complete. I would recommend you compare their program to the program you are currently using. I give Reliable a 5-Star Rating.”

PROPERTY MANAGEMENT COMPANY

Heather Herren is the Principal Broker and Owner of Rock Residential, an Arkansas-based property management company. Prior to switching to Reliable Background Screening, Heather worked experienced background check problems with false positives and an ineffective turnaround process.

They are on top of it.” Heather explained that Reliable does a lot of the leg work for screenings, and they contact every county of every address that shows up on every background check. Heather stated, “We don’t have to do anything, we don’t have to fill out any paperwork, it is automatically taken care of with Reliable Background Screening and they make our jobs a lot easier.” Rock Residential utilizes Reliable for both its resident screening and employee screening needs.

LARGE REGIONAL HVAC EMPLOYER

Tanya Ruddell is the Human Resource Manager for one of the largest residential heating, ventilation, and air conditioning companies in Phoenix, Arizona. Tanya is responsible for ensuring that all prospective employees undergo a thorough background screening. When she began her search 6 years ago for a company to perform background checks, she found several companies that bundled making employee badges, performing background screenings, checking referrals and other online monitoring services. Tanya did not need or want those services as a package. She wanted quick, simple, thorough, and reliable employee screenings.

One of the aspects Tanya likes most about Reliable, is that it gives her the option of quick online ordering. Tanya stated, “All I need is an accurate simple product, and they provide that to me.” Her user experience is simple – she goes online, orders the services she needs, and receives the reports.

“Their accuracy and communication are exceptional, I am completely content.” Tanya also added, “They keep us informed timely and recommend the right screening products for each background. I appreciate they are not continually trying to further sell services.” Tanya’s six-year relationship with Reliable has proven to be valuable, and productive because she knows her staff are properly screened.
