    I have been working at HireRight full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers, front line staff, & benefits. The new CEO, Guy Abramo is probably the most down to earth CEO we have had. Easy to talk to, actively listens, and approachable. This goes a long way with the culture we have here in the Tulsa office.

    Cons

    Human Resources. I have never worked for a company that was run by HR the way HireRight is. Beside the continual (and most often, unnecessary) changes in policy, the HR staff is arrogant and not helpful unless it benefits themselves. (this is globally, not only in the Tulsa office)

    Advice to Management

    Focus on and celebrate your front line employees the way you continually congratulate yourselves, pay competitive wages, and allow employees to feel they are being heard rather then not speak up for fear or retaliation.

    Pros

    Casual attire, but that’s it

    Cons

    Completely unstable company; lawsuits, BK and three CEOs in as many years.

    Health insurance deductable is so high it may as well not exist.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at the senior leadership page. See some news faces? Good. See some old faces, ones that’ve been around through the lawsuits, BK and layoffs? THESE are the people that need to go.

    Pros

    I love that you get out of your career, what you put into it. Management truly supports their employees and wants to help them achieve personal and professional growth.

    Cons

    Pay rate is on the lower side and no overtime is allowed.

    Advice to Management

    I believe overtime should be allowed for those who truly want to spend extra time supporting their clients and bettering their background check experience.

    I have been working at HireRight full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are adequate. The industry is still growing which means there are still opportunities for advancement and will likely continue to be in the near future.

    Cons

    I've worked for this organization for years and have seen our team succeed under less-than-ideal circumstances, but I have never seen morale as low as it is since we were purchased by private equity a few months ago.

    Teams are overworked, exhausted, and utterly ignored by a new management team that has stripped any semblance of diversity from its leadership and in the words of one new Director, "Why should I care if anyone here is happy?" Leadership has no real understanding of the industry and little desire to engage with the staff beneath them. As a result, work is being done recklessly in pursuit of unrealistic deadlines by teams working to simply survive instead of protecting our customers and their interests.

    Communication is poor, often times inaccurate, and superficial at best. What good is holding a town hall if the leadership team is incapable of responding to a simple escalation? There's a general sense among the staff that nobody is in charge.

    I don't foresee this culture getting better, and find it more likely that things are going to get much worse before anyone is willing to admit there's a problem.

    Advice to Management

    Accept that your existing staff know this industry and have insights that may be valuable to take into consideration before making big decisions. Appreciate the value that having diversity in your leadership team would provide.

    I worked at HireRight full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work was easy and coworkers were mostly nice and some that I didn’t care for were at least tolerable. Not much drama in this office.

    Cons

    Work was super boring. The execs try to position HireRight as a tech company that is doing amazing things in the industry. It’s really not.

    I worked at HireRight full-time

    Pros

    CoWorkers are amazing people and willing to help always.

    Cons

    New management hires have been known to have no background in the field and will manage not knowing answers to questions you have, and territory has changed and old selling tactics that have failed in the past implemented resulting in loss of staff.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your people and not what's best for you given that management doesn't make more money unless your sales staff is successful (and happy).
