Angela Healthcare Staffing company

We partnered with First Choice after interviewing several companies for our background checks and drug testing. Our decision was based on the perception that First Choice could deliver quality service at a reasonable price. I think that’s pretty much what goes into every purchasing decision, but often the results are not as anticipated. First Choice has exceeded our expectations with professional, timely service at a great price. In this competitive labor market, getting good, accurate results in a timely manner is more important than ever. It’s great to have a partner like First Choice who understands that and delivers.

First Choice is a true blessing to our non-profit. We are probably one of their smallest clients, but they treat us as if we are one of the largest. They customized the program to fit our needs and make the process easy for our customers.

When we began looking for a new company to assist with our background check needs, we were completely surprised by everything First Choice Background Screening has to offer. The comprehensive list of services provided everything we need to address any and all compliance related tasks. From background checks and fingerprinting to drug screens, First Choice can do it all. Their outstanding customer service, exceptional response time, and attention to detail has made them my favorite vendor to work with, hands down.
