Brad C from UHC Wednesday, June 14, 2017 #54262 I would strongly caution applicants not to become involved in this. Employers wanting to check references need to pick up the phone and call them instead of forcing the applicant to provide email addressed and then try to con managers into completing a survey which most major companies prohibit them from completing. There appears to be no verification that the references are accurate- this is simply software that mines information and the job seeker gives up all their rights when applying through them. Response from SkillSurvey:20 July 2017 at 11:58Hi Brad,More than 20 million candidates and references have used the SkillSurvey solution since it launched a decade ago, with both parties agreeing to participate in the process. Online reference checking actually gives more power to job candidates in that they have control over which references to provide and know through status reports which references have been reached and provided feedback. There are also technical safeguards to ensure reference authenticity. All reference contact information is available should a recruiter or hiring manager wish to follow-up via phone. 4 of 5 people found this review helpful. Did you find this review helpful?
