I applied for a job. Hireright asked for a background check by sending an email to a group distribution list at my employer [email protected] The next day about 10 people gave me a copy of the background check and asked "are you planning to leave?" I looked at the email and it was sent at 3:40AM and likely sent from a low cost labor pool in India. My boss and his boss grilled me. I eventually had the leave the job because my credibility and integrity were destroyed by hireright.

I complained to hireright and they did not do a thing. The said that they opened a customer case and gave me a case number. That was the last thing I ever heard from hireright.

My advise to anyone is to ask their potential future employer if they use hireright before you fill out the employment form. Make it crystal clear that they can not contact your current employer until you have been hired.

These guys are beyond incompetent they could ruin your career.

In summary, I would not recommend Hire Right to a friend.
