If you order our 7 Year Comprehensive Criminal Background Check package, we will run an instant criminal multi-state database search, a national sex offender registry search, social security number trace, alias search, and 7 years of county felony and misdemeanor criminal records. We offer additional products including verification of employment, education, and licenses, credit reports, court records, DOT verifications, motor vehicle reports, and drug tests.

ApplicantPro works with its sister company, ProScreening, to run background checks. You can order and view background checks on your top applicants easily through the ApplicantPro platform. However, because ApplicantPro and ProScreening are separate entities, they will bill separately. All background checks will be invoiced from ProScreening.

On average, a background check is processed and completed in 2-3 business days. Keep in mind that the turnaround time may vary depending on what is included in the report. More in-depth reports containing verifications (employment, education, etc.) can extend the turnaround time, as we rely on responses from employers and/or educational institutions to complete the report.

Your candidate will receive an authorization request email to "authorize" their background check. This process is made quick and easy through our online authorization portal. Learn more about the exact process the applicant goes through when authorizing their background check.

Yes! If the products we quote don't compare to what you are currently running, or if the pricing is more than what you are paying now, simply let us know! A copy of a recent check or invoice from your current provider will allow us to do what we can to give you an apples to apples comparison so we can do our best to give you the best price possible.

We're sure you have found a great candidate, but it's always good to double-check on their past. Once you run a background check, you'll KNOW they are the right one!

We understand that each employer is different.

Our team can help you design a program that fits your needs. Check out what our background checks can cover:

criminal background checks

Criminal Background Checks

Our Criminal Background Checks are pulled from a number of databases that will paint a complete picture of your applicant's criminal past, if they have one. Build a background check program based on three criminal search tiers, ranging from Basic to Best. The higher the tier, the deeper we dig!

drug testing services

Drug Testing Services

We have Drug Testing Services that will make the drug screening process a breeze. No more back and forth between the clinic and the applicant. Just order the test and we will find a testing center and schedule the appointment for your applicant. The results are sent electronically to our system for you to view.

verification process


Make sure your applicant is who they say they are! Our Verification Process will easily check all the information an applicant has supplied. We can verify employment, education, and licenses.

motor vehicle records

Motor Vehicle Records

MVR's are a must for employers managing employees who drive on behalf of the company. An MVR will report the current status of a driver's license and any previous violations, accidents, suspensions, revocations, and more where available.

DOT Verification

DOT Verifications

DOT Services include Safety Performance Reviews, Motor Vehicle Records, CDLIS (Commercial Drivers License Information System) records, PSP Reports and DOT Drug Screening services.

and more!

And More!

Go a step further with additional services including Social Security Number traces, Federal and County Civil Record searches, Credit Reports, Personal and Professional References, Healthcare Sanctions searches, and more!

What Our Clients Are Saying

client quote

Arvig has been using ApplicantPro for our background checking need for several months now. Prior to switching to ApplicantPro, we were using another third party service, and it was a manual-entry process, which was burdensome and time-consuming.

Since we were already using ApplicantPro as our applicant tracking system, we were very excited to hear that Applicant Pro could assist us with our background checks.

We have been very pleased with ApplicantPro's background checks. Not only does it save time by eliminating data entry duplication, but we have been very pleased with the turnaround time and the thoroughness of the results.

Once we began using the background services I was further relieved to experience just how easy it is to request a background search right from the applicant system using the integration tab!

During the course of the background search, you can check its status at any time to learn what stage it is in. The processing time is quite fast compared to other vendors I have used, most likely due to the customer service focus that ApplicantPro has. If there is an issue during the process, they are quick to email me and ask how I would like to proceed.

Any questions I've had along the way have been promptly addressed and answered, making me feel like a valued client.

We are able to use different background checks depending on the employee and what our client has requested, the result are put simply and clearly.

There is never any question and overall we have been thrilled about what ProScreening has done for MetaSource.

I would recommend ProScreening to anyone who would like faster, more efficient background checks.
