DATE: January 2011 - Outsourcing References
It's 6:00 p.m. and another long afternoon is winding down. You have just spent your day interviewing many candidates for that "all too
crucial" position that you have to fill by Friday. You start to review the day's events, and everything seems to be a blur. Faces become
numbers, and resumes all start looking the same. You may even start to question yourself. "I think interview number five is surely what
we are looking for, but then again, maybe I will find that shining star tomorrow." After all, you do have six more interviews scheduled,
and this is on top of your normal day-to-day Human Resources responsibilities. All you know is the clock is ticking and you have to
make the right decision…and Commercial Investigations LLC is here to help!
In today's tough economic times, the job market is tight and hiring is limited. There is much more pressure on job seekers to "stay one
step ahead of the pack." Many applicants feel they have to exaggerate their resumes just to get ahead. Even honest job applicants
are sometimes forced to push the envelope just to stay ahead of the competition. We believe there is a major advantage in

A complete and thorough reference check is something our highly trained investigators specialize in. We operate in a call center type
environment where we can focus on individual calls, which is very efficient because we are available all day. This setting also allows us
the luxury of never missing an incoming call. As mentioned previously, a normal day for any Human Resources Professional is spent
juggling many tasks in little time. We pride ourselves on our fast turnaround time. We have the knowledge, resources and time to
follow up and research difficult to contact references.
By outsourcing reference checks to us, you will get a third party who has an unbiased opinion of your candidate. We use a standard
set of questions that can be customized, so we always ask the right question at the right time. Another advantage of outsourcing
reference checks to Commercial Investigations LLC is that we can identify any warning signs of an applicant who has a less than
favorable work history or poor relationships with supervisors. The bottom line is that long term employee retention is something we all
want to see as the outcome.
A lot of time and money is spent during the hiring process, from the initial interview of the applicant to the training of your new
employee. The question we ask is, "Why replace one individual that didn't work out with another potential bad egg?" At Commercial
Investigations LLC, we strongly feel you will have an advantage by outsourcing reference checks to us. Within a short turnaround time,
our investigators will work diligently to get you the end results you are looking for, allowing you to free up valuable time to focus on
other aspects of your hiring process. The benefit to you is that we can unmask the potentially bad employees before they are hired,
and assist you in finding that "perfect fit" your company is looking for before someone else finds them!
