Pre-employment Background Check

Not doing a pre-employment background check on your employees can cost your business in instances of theft, embezzlement, lawsuits, or even worse, a deadly shooting.

There is no universal way to perform a pre-employment background check. The level of depth and scope will vary based on the purpose of your search. A pre-employment background check for an entry level employee will not be the same as one for a high level manager. And a pre-employment background check on an individual will differ greatly from one performed on an organization. Our pre-employment background checks can be as comprehensive as you need, depending on your requirements.

Sharpline Investigations provides it’s clients with a vast network of data including, but not limited to, information from county records searches to international searches. Sharpline has hundreds of cutting edge pre-employment background check screening techniques that will eliminate any and all of your toughest background screening concerns.


National Criminal Database Search
  • A search for criminal convictions from compiled national criminal databases.
  • This search will reveal felony convictions as well as felony charges reduced to misdemeanor charges thus resulting in misdemeanor convictions.
  • A national search for all persons convicted of crimes involving sex, including rape, molestation, sexual harassment and pornography production or distribution.

Sharpline Investigations utilizes the nation criminal database search as a precursory search for more in depth county searches. This search is not recommended to be used as a complete criminal background check on an applicant.

County Criminal Search

  • Reveals seven years of misdemeanor and felony criminal offenses
Social Security Number Trace
  • A search of the Social Security database files and search of credit bureau files to authenticate the subject’s SSN and name.
  • This search shows prior addresses and other names including (maiden/alias/aka) associated with the subject.
  • This search may also uncover evidence of identity theft and/or a SSN number being used that belonged to someone who is now deceased.
