Employee Screening

Need help with Employee Screening and Background Check Services?

ASG is a leader in simple, cost effective employee screening, employee screening services and detailed background searches conducted by Licensed Private Investigators.

The employee screening industry is in a constant state of change. Disclosure forms, adverse action letters, federal and state compliance can all present significant hurdles in the hiring process. Our job as a consumer reporting agency (CRA) is to ensure that we can provide reports that are accurate and compliant.

We strive to make sure the pre-employment screening process is as simple and efficient as possible. In order to accomplish that goal, we have developed a secure online submission portal. This portal presents a number of advantages that we believe help elevate our level of service past that of a standard CRA.

  • Professional Review by Actual Investigators
    • Each employee screening is reviewed by a professional investigator to ensure integrity and accuracy of records. With the vast majority of employee screening services, a computer is the only thing that looks at your applicant’s information or the search results.
  • Simple, Fast Online Order Submission
    • We save you time and money by sending an e-mail link to allow each applicant to fill out their own disclosure, digitally authorize their signature, and submit the request to our team of professional investigators.
  • Works for Any Size Business
    • Our online portal can be configured for any number of users per company. We can also create child companies to help with large scale operations.
    • Our system has been designed with simplicity in mind; one user could manage an entire operation with ease.
  • Simple Secure Invoicing
    • Set up a automatic payment and avoid the need to cut checks. Upon a successful charge, you will receive an invoice indicating your balance (if any) and itemizing all charges for simple accounting.
  • Easy to Use Interface
    • Our interface is simple and clean. Reports are clearly labeled as “No Records” or “Records Located”, with an explanation of charges when applicable.
    • Can be operated on any internet connected device.
  • Online Report Hosting
    • Each background check will be stored in our secure online system for posterity. Your company may login at any time to review or print documents as necessary.
Our services - Employee Screening and background checks
Background Check form

There is no longer any doubt about the need for pre-employment screening services and applicants from all walks of life now know and expect that a background check will be performed on them when they seek new employment. The only real issue left is the selection of a background check firm to assist you in the process.

The Pre-Employment Screening division of ASG Investigations was established because of the large number of clients who expressed concern over the lack of quality, comprehensive employee background check companies available to assist employers. Their concern was that most of these companies are run by computer “experts” who are looking to sell information gathered from computer databases rather than investigating an applicant’s background at the source. These same employee screening firms and online background check scammers are big on disclaimers and short on results.

We are NOT computer programmers looking to make easy money off of yet another employee background check website.

We are licensed private detectives. We know where to go to find data that is accurate, documented and verifiable. This helps to keep your existing employees safe and helps to eliminate erroneous reporting on your applicant’s information.

We are NOT an instant online employee background check company.

We certainly understand that having access to all information instantly is a great concept and would make life very easy for our clients, but the reality is that it is not possible to locate your applicant’s records through any computer system with the simple click of a mouse. There are no National databases of criminal records or secret websites that contain people’s “real” job history. One day we may have those options, but not today. Instead, what is possible is to work with a pre-employment screening agency that knows how to conduct real background investigations quickly and affordably. Our clients have the same need for fast turnarounds and high levels of customer service that you do.

If you ever have any questions or concerns, we encourage you to call us today to speak with an investigator.

Nationwide Employee Screening, Employee Screening and Background Checks

“We can’t afford to hire trouble. ASG makes sure we don’t!”

Background check

The facts are clear. An alarming number of resumes and employment applications contain false and misleading information. Background checks, pre-employment screening and employee screening are vital to protecting your company and your employees.

Altered dates, false claims, inflated salaries, inflated titles and responsibilities, false or incomplete prior employment history, false separation reasons and undisclosed criminal histories are some of the most frequently encountered problems on resumes. More disturbing is the number of unqualified applicants who have secured false credentials to get a job.

As an employer or human resources professional, you already know how much damage a bad hire can cause and how difficult it is to terminate the employment. Accordingly, it only makes sense to hire the right people and avoid business disruptions, inappropriate behavior, endangering co-workers, liability, litigation, theft & fraud by employing a quality employee-screening agency.

The problem you face is, which firm do you entrust to conduct your background checks and employee screening? There are many companies offering these services on the web, but if you take a good look at them, many are simply data brokers and really offer you nothing more than information they purchase. This is particularly true with regard to the INSTANT RESULTS websites that claim to conduct a background check. In reality, all these companies do is purchase old public record data and dump it into a database. When you, the customer, enter an employee’s information into their system, it spits out that old data. No human is conducting anything, let alone really checking out the employees’ background. At ASG, a private investigator is personally conducting your employee screening background and providing you with more than old outdated records. We also review and question the findings at every step and provide you with our expert opinion on what we find.

Background Check Experts – ASG Background Check Services

When you need a background check to learn the truth about someone, ASG has a background check designed to meet your needs. Each background check is unique and what may be relevant in one case is not in another.

As licensed private investigators, we know what information is possible to develop and how to provide an accurate, detailed background check – no matter where your subject resides. We also know that it is very important to consider who we are investigating when determining what type of background check you need and what records you expect us to find.

It is important to understand that the term “background check” is a generic one. Each background check is different and the level of depth you want to go is nearly limitless.

We are not a database company, or data brokers. ASG Background Check Services is a full service private investigative agency specializing in background checks where accuracy and due diligence matters.

We know what background check information is available and how to get it quickly and cost effectively. No short cuts, no gimmicks, no fluff. Our clients are people concerned about themselves, their families, co-workers and loved ones. They cannot afford to waste time and money working with a firm that provides more disclaimers than information.

Beware Of Online Background Check Scams

Beware of the “Instant” Background Check

Most of the “Background Check” websites that you will find on the internet are nothing more than sites that automatically search through FREE public record sources or buy old outdated information and resell it to you at 20 times the cost.

What they do NOT do is to provide you with an actual background check. This is particularly true for the “Instant background check” companies.

The results they give you: Fast but meaningless data or data that is comprised of information you likely already knew. Ironically, they forget to tell you that there is little or no chance that their background check will find anything meaningful.

The companies that sell this type of information are not licensed private investigators and cannot give you the accuracy you want.

What Makes ASG Background Check Services Stand Out From the Crowd:

  • We are Private Investigators, not a database search company
  • We provide 80 years of professional experience and judgment

  • Our background checks are done by investigators, not databases. Tell us about your concerns and we focus on what you know about and care about most.
  • We provide a detailed report of our findings

If you find that you need more than just a background check, we are a full service private detective agency able to bring the full assets of our agency, with nationwide resources, to handle any type of background check or investigation you may require.

We encourage you to call us today to discuss your background check needs. An investigator will explain the background check process and the results to be obtained. The call is completely confidential and toll free.

Important: Obviously, criminal activity is a major concern to all of our clients. It is also important that you understand that criminal records within a background check must be done at a local level.


If a company is offering this type of background check to you, they have created their own “national” criminal database which is not reliable, accurate or complete and is ridiculous at best.

Each state has different ways of recording criminal record information. Some have state-wide criminal record databases but most do not. Each court, at the city or county level, also has its own unique way of recording criminal records and allowing the public access to them. At ASG Background Check Services, we know exactly where and how to look for them in the fastest and most intelligent way to give you quick results without compromising completeness or accuracy.

We have designed several different background checks for each state and for differing levels of depth, tailored to meet your specific background check needs and save you money. If you find that any of these packaged background checks will not meet your needs or you would like additional information, we can quickly modify them and have you up and running in minutes. We customize background checks daily to accommodate our client’s needs.

Please feel free to contact us to discuss your specific needs. Your call is strictly confidential.
