ShareAble for Hires: Background Check Pricing Options

The cost of picking the wrong employee, one who has a relevant criminal past or who has shown problems managing their own financial situation, can be expensive for a small, growing business. That’s why it is important to make an investment to learn more about your prospective employee’s background.

How much is a background check? When you research background check costs online you’ll find different pricing. From cheap background checks to expensive ones, the cost of a background check for employment can vary widely, depending on the type and amount of information an employer requests.

How much a background check costs for employment depends on a number of variables, such as:

  • Customized searches focusing on a county/federal criminal search or motor vehicle report
  • Number of county court record searches requested
  • Statewide criminal records search, which depend on amount of information accessible

The cost of a background check for employment can include various add-on or access fees incurred by additional research and/or additional requests by the employer for information.

In contrast, ShareAble for Hires pricing is simpler. We offer 3 packages that will fit your needs and budget. Our pay-per-use pre-employment background screening check cost model is a great option for small businesses that don’t do a large volume of screenings. There are no signup fees and no hidden fees, which helps keep your background check costs low. And unlike other background check companies that charge an upfront fee just to enroll, we offer free signup. No membership fees or minimums with our background check pricing. You only pay for what you need, when you need it.

When you use ShareAble for Hires, you’ll get a lot without paying a lot. Included in our background check price are reports generated from over 370 million criminal records. Our criminal history report has instant criminal data from 43 states* and includes results from:

  • U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC)

*Instant criminal results not available for Delaware, Hawaii, Kentucky, Massachusetts, South Dakota, Utah, Washington DC, and Wyoming.

If you want to a get a more complete picture of your job candidate’s background, then review your candidate’s credit history to help you better determine risk and learn more about their ability to manage their finances. This can be particularly important if your candidate is applying for a position with significant financial authority. By upgrading your package to our most comprehensive background screening, you can buy a little more piece of mind and get credit history information on your candidate. By spending just a little bit more for the cost of a background check for the full package, you not only get a full criminal history but also get the job applicant’s credit report information.
