If it is done over the phone, a single reference check should take around 15 to 25 minutes. If the reference check is automated, it can take as quick as 30 seconds for an employer to request a reference. Once we have the responses, our team usually take one day to process those and provide you with a report.

Reference checks are agreed by the hiring company and are there to confirm that candidates have been honest on their job application and with interview responses. Reference checks questions can relate to job titles, salary, employment dates etc. Some examples include:

  • When the applicant worked for your company.
  • Why an applicant left a company.
  • Whether an applicant was often late, or missed a lot of working days.
  • Whether an applicant preferred to work alone or in a team.
  • What an applicant’s biggest achievement was while working for a company.
  • Whether a former employer would rehire an applicant if the opportunity arose, and why.
  • How an applicant handled working under pressure.
  • What an applicant’s role was while working in a company.
  • Whether an applicant would be a good fit in a new position and why.
