Retail background checks matter now more than ever.

Onboard better hires faster. In a high-turnover industry that fluctuates by season, finding the right fit for your open retail positions has never been more important. We help you identify trustworthy new hires who are ready to work right away.

Streamline seasonal hiring

Trying to fill open retail positions is challenging enough. Add seasonal ramp-ups to the mix and you risk bringing on new staff who haven’t been properly vetted. Reducing internal shrinkage and other personnel risks is within your control – if you take a targeted approach to your recruiting. We help major retail brands streamline background checks to identify reliable candidates more quickly, even during heavy seasonal recruiting periods.

Seamless integration

Reduce duplicate data entry and create a smooth screening process by integrating Accurate Background with your ATS. Trim turnaround time by filtering and prioritizing criminal history results. We specialize in high-volume screening hires and offer mobile kiosk screening using a static link or URL, so you can hire and screen candidates on the spot at high-volume employment events.

Compliant screenings at scale

Our rigorous compliance standards and personalized customer support help protect your liability exposure, even during the most demanding recruiting scenarios. Built-in compliance tools can automatically trigger disclosures and notifications, whether running one background check or one hundred.

Improved candidate experience

Retail recruiting is competitive. Your candidates are likely applying for several different retail positions simultaneously. Our candidate-centric process helps applicants feel comfortable with your organization from the moment they log on. The candidate portal is optimized for use on mobile devices so applicants can complete forms, upload documents, give consent, and track the status of their application at any time from their phone.

Services for the Retail Industry

Criminal Background Checks

The nature of retail jobs makes them especially vulnerable to theft and fraud as employees have direct access to inventory and cash every day. Protect yourself from inventory shrinkage, lost customers, and damaged reputation that can result from one bad hire. Accurate’s retail screening solutions help you reduce employee theft without bogging down your hiring process.

Form I-9 & E-Verify

Every retail hire must be eligible to work in the United States. Accurate makes I-9 compliance easy with cloud-based, mobile-friendly, paperless I-9 solutions. You can instantly capture, collect, and store I-9 info with just a few keystrokes. Our automated system makes the process easy for candidates and reduces the risk of errors. Stay compliant and move at the speed of retail with Accurate.

Drug & Health Screenings

There’s only one way to protect your retail establishment from the many risks and expenses associated with drug and alcohol abuse and that’s to establish a drug-free workplace with the help of pre-employment drug testing. The Accurate platform makes scheduling a wide variety of drug testing services, including vaccinations and drug panel options, as simple as clicking a button.
