Background Check FAQs

Mathnasium Corporate is not requiring re-screens if you have background checked your employees using all the minimum required checks before. However, background checks are only valid up to the dates they were performed, and typically they do not show any criminal activity thereafter. Sterling Talent Solutions always suggests a re-screen to get one up to date, considering the depth of the new screening packages, or an annual check to ensure maximum due diligence.

Unfortunately, there is no way for Sterling Talent Solutions to single out one search to “fill” a gap not previously checked. Too many variables exist to consider which gaps to fill and if there was activity that was not searched liability could exist. It is necessary to run a complete search to ensure maximum coverage and due diligence.

Because of the highly regulated, sensitive nature of the background screening industry the FTC and Fair Credit Reporting Act mandate entities are identified and legitimized via a credentialing application with information completed on page one and two.

Yes. Per guidelines for compliance to verify legitimacy of company and credit worthiness a bank and two references is mandatory. Please list your bank name (your account number is not necessary). Please also list two trade references for example: #1 – Mathnasium Corporate offices on Goldleaf in Los Angeles, and #2: Water supplier, Paper supplier, i.e. Staples, Office Depot, Alhambra Water, etc.
