Hi Jaio,
Millions of references and candidates have used Checkster's streamlined, automated reference checking process. We find candidates appreciate the experience given their added control of inviting references themselves to provide feedback and tracking whether they’ve responded. And references respond well too — we see an average of 6 respondents per candidate, much higher than what's received via phone checks. We also pride ourselves on providing top notch customer service. If at any time you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We're here to help!

RUN RUN RUN...... DO NOT LOOK BACK ........ REFUSE TO USE THIS PRODUCT........A SETUP FOR IDENTITY THEFT..... Look at all the other reviews.....This company is a setup fro invasion of privacy and identity theft. This company has many products each searching as a resource for very personal information. Cold and unprofessional and does it all on line without physical address or contact information, and is transparent to regulators.......and sets itself up looking like an email from me as opposed to a request for reference from a potential employer.....Then in the email asks references for their unpublished phone number. Clearly trying to set up its own data base for marketing or possibly for scamming purposes
I have informed my search company that I will not be working with checkster
I had to apologize to my references. One reference recalled being called by checkster and asking for personal financial and employment information from this same company in the past
THIS IS A BAD NEWS COMPANY

Horrible experience for my references. Its a lot to ask of them to spent 20 minutes essentially doing an in depth employee review.

Gave 5 people as a reference and all 5 emails sent looked like they were coming from me. My old head of security who is challenging the state of Georgia thought it was a scam. Thats how bad it was over all. Don't use even if free.

Requires minimum of 8 references. TOTALLY RIDICULOUS. Completely unprofessional and cold. Will only accept email as a form of communication. Sends a sketchy, unprofessional letter to your references making it appear YOU are the one soliciting them. I had to personally apologize to my references who are trusted and respected colleagues!!- for how bootleg this was.

Totally impersonal and intimidating.
Requires 7 to 25 references to compile a report for hiring company.
Will not except all "excellent" on a check of list concerning candidate. Instead a pop up explains all excellents not allowed. Therefore, cannot go forward with the survey until candidiate is downgraded. Not exactly accurate and unbiased is it?
Sends out letter to references from applicant regarding filling out the form. Anyone knowing the applicant would recognize this letter does not sound like the applicant and would question whether this is legitimate. Looks like a phishing scam.
End of survey asks questions regarding the reference, also looks like a phishing scam.
Suggests applicant remind any references that have not filled out form to do so. Really, remind adult supervisors and coworkers? Shouldn't CHECKSTER be doing some of the work. Aren't they getting paid?
All references must have email addresses. No other form of contact is accepted.
Very, cold, impersonal, very robotic like.
