As you can see by ALL of the other reviews dealing with this company is a nightmare. I received an offer for a great position that I had been waiting for, for months! HireRight is the company that they used to do the background check.

First of all they were unable to contact/reach any of my last employers including a worldwide well known staffing agency. What was so crazy was the company that they were doing the background check for was the SAME company that had hired me previously through that staffing company. Yet and still they were unable to reach them to verify dates. So I had to provide a W-2's for them and two other companies that they "could not" reach. Thank God I kept all of those w-2's or I would have lost out on the position. They also falsely claimed they called one of my educational institutes I attended in the report and that they asked me for documentation and I refused. Which was a complete lie.

Thankfully since I did have proof of past employment by providing W-2's I successfully passed their: 'I- did-all-the-work-for-them background process' or they would have threw me under the bus and ruined my reputation!

This company which is located in Irvine, CA but outsources to India and where ever else should really revise and reassess their business practices! I bet you dollars to donuts that NO ONE that works for them in Irvine or these other countries has to go through this ridiculous background process. They are causing qualified candidates to miss out on good jobs and causing employers to miss out on great employees!

The ONLY good thing I experience with them is that there online applicant center was very easy to use and upload documents. The end.

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