Checkster is a promising application with some out-of-the-box features and great functionality. The user interface has not been made unnecessarily complicated, which enhances the user experience over the platform. This is not the case only for the admin, but also for the endpoint users as well. Accuracy has to be the best thing about the Checkster application. The marking system is easy to understand and interpret. Anonymous reports make the procedure completely unbiased. It makes the site loading process easier and effective for endpoint users.

Verified Review

I applied for a healthcare position at Lexington Medical Center in Columbia, SC and was denied a position because this company ..Checkster said the references committed fraud using the same cell phone to complete the questionnaire. I initially thought it was a good idea to participate in this type of new age way of checking references. Actually CHesckster cost me a good position because they are a Fraud. So basically they are saying all my references had the same phone? Doesnt make sense

Makes life great recruiting teams and referrals alike! We've reduced the time it takes to gather references, the internal resources required, and the cost involved. We get more responses from references now as well, since they are comfortable with the online format.

Use this product if you're struggling with staying on top of references for your candidates. it's extremely helpful and they provide ample support to your team if needed

Time management issues and lack of follow up with candidates for referral checks. This is a lot easier for our Physician / APP candidates than our process was before. we are finally in the 21st century with Checkster!

Easy to use and no issue technically to report, time saver to say the least and that matters so much when hiring across a wide screen of applicants. Fast results and effortless movement through the hiring process.

Check references so much quicker and without having to make several calls without an answer. Its like it cut the time in half for the hiring process. I also trust the information I receive and don't question how accurate it is. My Association is sky rocketing in accurate hiring. I like knowing I don't have to spend days finding information. I like the notifications I get throughout the process

My students/interns are getting an amazing reflection of their strengths and competencies in creative problem solving, critical thinking and collaboration. Checkster is providing real time impact and an understanding that can be transferred to the real world immediately.

As an institute built on training higher education students in the need and impact of 21st century essential skills, it can be difficult to understand the whys and whats of such skills since they tend to live outside of the academic domains. Checkster is giving language and direction to everyone involved that provided great tools for reflection

Using Checkster at work saves my colleagues and the business as a whole time in terms of doing reference checks. Checkster is a very simple yet effective tool in recruitment, both from the consultant/recruiter's perspective and also the listed referee. Checkster is quite a good tool in business especially if recruitment is one of the core functions

I like that the reference checks are in the employees' hands. The amount of effort that they put into the reference check gives you a good idea of the type of employee they will be. If they blow it off and do the bare minimum, if gives us reason to wonder if they'd be a good employee.

Checkster is actually integrating liaison ratings, saving effort and time for the recruitment team. Additionally, it has links to databases which may be enhanced as talent pools. You are able to tailor the research of yours to your character criteria. It offers quality control of the employment process as well as the potential to look at analyses and reports.

Savings in time that is real by automating reference validation, link searches and info integration analysis. A method which alerts you to attempts at misuse. This's extremely helpful when hiring a substantial number of staff members and you can't just contact each of them separately.

Checkster makes completing reference checks SO easy- can't imagine hiring for summer camp without it. It is the biggest time-saver ever. Playing phone tag with references was time consuming, and could take weeks. A huge benefit of Checkster is that reference checks can be completed in a matter of days.

Very user friendly for me and the reference giver. It's nice that it is more of a survey. I also like knowing it was done by the correct person, no suspicious activity shown. It appears more professional as well. I like that I get an email letting me know the moment a reference has been completed as well. It saves me time on checking back in. I also like to be able to send the reminder notification in case they forgot.

It saves alot of time and is easy for the user and the receiver to complete and process the information. It is clean and professional looking. All around a great tool for referencing.

I like the ease of use and depth of questions. This tool is the most useful tool I've used to date when starting the interview and onboarding process. It cuts my manual process down to a few clicks. The way that the references are customizable works for just about every hirable position in our company. Checkster has saved us time and money. They are able to do a job we'd have to hire another person to do. The time and money we are saving by using Checkster is allowing us the freedom to do more strategically. It has helped keep our company competitive by allowing us to get talent into the door at a faster rate. It drastically reduces the manual time I have to utilize to ensure accurate verifications for candidates. I am able to quantify areas of strength and improvement and create a more proactive plan for candidates.

The ease of sending the reference check, and the incredibly fast replies! The reporting is also easy to read and understand. One of the other aspects of the reference check that we love is the ability to share the report with others easily.

We went from manually calling references and hoping and praying for a call back or someone to pick up the phone, from using checkster and getting results quickly. This as improved our overall time to fill and lets be real--our sanity!

Sometimes the fraud alerts can be confusing but i'm usually able to figure it out

It's fairly easy to use. I like Checkster, but wish that we as Recruiters had more control over the functionality within the system. I can't add or change references' contact information and have to email Checkster if I need to add or remove a candidates' references' response. I have, however, seen improved functionality recently and appreciate that. It's a good way to gather references.

The request go to the candidates directly. The system lets you know if one or more of the references used the exact same access point to do the review to avoid fraud. Very specific in the questions asked. I used to dislike not being able to send the review directly to some supervisors but Checkster took care of that. It takes a lot of pressure from the hiring authority. All of our Principals love it!

The ease of use is wonderful. References like it because they can reply at a time convenient for them...never interrupted with a phone call. The answers tend to be more candid. Email reminders sent automatically allows me to focus on other things. Potential fraud alerts warn us if the candidate is trying to bypass the system. The reports are crisp and clean and very thorough.

Allows the process to take place behind the scenes. We have found our time freed up instead of running after references. The anonymity means references are being more truthful even if the response happens to be negative. Our clients appreciate the honest feedback.

The fact that I am no longer wasting time making phone calls. Spending time on those calls, or trying to reach someone without any luck takes time from my other tasks and Checkster frees up that time. It is also very informative, some references may not be completely honest in a phone interview, but feel more comfortable online.

This is a real question that they ask referees: “Given the importance of WHS are you aware of any injury/illness that may prevent (candidate) from working? If yes please provide details.” Surely this is illegal, it’s definitely unethical. A person’s medical details should be private, not finessed from a third party by a poorly designed survey.

We utilize checkster for every potential candidate. It sets the tone for ownership on the candidate end and has great measurable data in the responses based on the positions and check up type. It is quick, easy and very easy for the candidate to follow up on their reference check status. It also has the ability to detect any fraudulent responses and sends alerts for the hiring manager to investigate before taking next steps in the offer process.

You will need a minimum of four references and you can use managers, peers, colleagues, clients, teachers etcetera.
The problem is, if you are using an employment agency they will only accept references from two of your previous managers or supervisors, and they must be recent employers, not older ones.
They won't accept mobile telephone or social email addresses such as Google or Hotmail so you can only use work related email addresses which stipulates where your manager works.
And the system cannot send a text message to a landline telephone number either.

Checkster offers critical context about prior employment experience and ensures we have a clearer understanding of our prospective hires. It also weeds out candidates that lack integrity. And as an added benefit, Checkster drives new employment leads. 85% of every Checkster reference opts into our applicant lead management system.

Checkster solves many problems by automating the process, making it easier and less costly for the employer and taking less time from prior employers. It also creating anonymity which fosters much more open feedback. Checkster also reduces legal exposure created when references aren't handled properly by the employer or reference giver. The system catches integrity issues that you may not uncover until someone is hired. And last but not least, Checkster drives employment leads and in today's labor market, we need all we can get.

The BEST time SAVER EVER!!! If you have ever done reference checks you understand the time suck and frustration of dealing with leaving messages and waiting for calls back to complete the check. It is ridiculous! It is a completely outdated way of doing references- this saves so much time and frustration and the outcomes are better than if I would have talked to the person myself anyways. LOVE CHECKSTER!!! I can not think of anything I don't like, they have thought of everything to make this as user friendly and as simple as possible!!! Try it- just try it and I guarantee you will never go back to manual calls again! Best thing I have implemented in my current role! Time saver is #1! Having a great report from the references is a huge benefit,, the check forms we were using didn't give the full picture - checkster does!

Our company uses Checkster's Reference Checkup (soon to be called Reference Insights) during our application process for employees, volunteers, and interns. We have consistently found the Checkster site and software to be easy-to-use, simple and effective. The average time for receiving reference feedback has been significantly reduced!

Checkster has freed up staff time by providing a quick and efficient medium for requesting and obtaining references. No longer are we having to attach Word documents to emails or follow-up on reference requests directly. Checkster has empowered our applicants to see which of their references have been returned and which are still incomplete, allowing the applicants themselves to nudge their reference people and set the pace for this part of the process. In essence, the legwork of reference gathering has been primarily undertaken by the Checkster system and the applicant!

Time saving, low staff, able to reach people in off hours that normal calling would not provide. Being able to contact more than one individual for more than one candidate saves so much time. It also helps us get candidates hired and into roles they desire in a reasonable amount of time. In the staffing agency realm, things are always moving quickly, and we often do not have the time or resources to reach out to every reference individually without taking up too much time. Checkster has made our process flawless. We can also see when a reference check was sent out and send reminders if someone has not yet responded.

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

The service is fast and the results are qualitative as well as comprehensive. Checkster was already implemented with my client. The product was very easy to understand and the response time was also great. The only recommendation would have been to have a full custom survey available for surveys. Some roles are not cookie cutter; therefore additional detail is necessary. Less of my time has been spent calling references and waiting for responses. Checkster has taken care of a lot of that footwork.

I like how easy it is to obtain references and have those references provide all the information you need regarding potential hires. You can standardize your evaluation of candidates this way by sending the same survey to all references. Enable businesses to obtain references in an easy, organized manner and get the information you actually need.

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

The variety of questions this asks is awesome. It sends in the data already aggragated which makes it easier to digest. It is a way of getting references without having to call tons or people and gives the applicant peace of mind that you won’t immediately call their current job for a reference unless they add them.

Cheskster consolidates the ratings of the reviews from the references, hence saving time and effort on part of the recruiting team. Reduces fraud. also provides database of references that could be optimized as a talent pipeline.

Automated reference checks. Really saves the time for reaching out to the references and consolidating the feedback and analytics.

Integrity alerts if anyone try to misuse the system.

Very useful when doing high volume hires and unable to call each reference individually.

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.
