(Ad) It can take months to get to know someone, but most of us don’t have that kind of time.
If you need to truly know someone fast—especially if you’re thinking of offering them a job—then one of your best options is to use a background check service.
These sites reveal a person’s criminal history, social media accounts, current, and past addresses—even speeding tickets. This information can help you decide if you can trust someone with your business, family, or possessions.
All you need is their name or phone number, and a good background check site will do the rest. In 10 minutes, you’ll have a criminal record report and additional information useful in helping you decide if you can trust them.
Not all background check services are equal, though. For this article, we’ve spent over 30 hours researching every type of background check service and sorted them according to what they’re best at.
