How long should a background check take?
This depends upon the types of searches requested and the geographical locations. We can let you know the estimated delivery time on every background check you order, and we return the results as soon as they’re available. That means you can see the results of the National Criminal Databases Search, for example, even if employer verification isn’t yet complete. Although information from other searches can affect the entire investigation, so best practice would be to ensure all components are complete before taking action.
