Q: Will conducting a credit report affect the candidate’s credit score?

A: No. Unlike applying for a loan or credit card, our credit report is designed specifically for employment purposes. It does not affect credit scores.

Q: Are your credit reports lengthy and difficult to interpret?

A: Report contents can vary greatly based on the length of credit activity. Some reports are just a few pages long while others have dozens of pages. Our representatives are available to help you with any report interpretation questions your hiring staff may have. If you need help, contact us.
