What Should I Expect From A Background Check?

The turnaround time for a background check is affected by a number of factors. These are some of them:

1. The location of your candidate’s residence The scope of the screening and study that has been requested

2. Whether the applicant has provided all of the necessary information for the background check to be completed.

A background check usually takes 3-5 business days to complete. Please keep in mind that this turnaround time is not guaranteed.
