Background Check FAQs
Why is it important to complete a background check?
Background checks are required by the enterprise clients providing the servicing opportunities for security purposes. Many clients will be providing access to their confidential customer information, such as names, addresses, phone numbers and credit card data. The checks screen those registering to use the Arise® Platform to ensure each is free of disqualifying criminal history and their identity is validated.
Arise does not allow usage of the platform by anyone who has been convicted of or pled guilty to certain felony or misdemeanor charges; including but not limited to theft, fraud, identity theft, or other similar violations.
How do I complete a background check?
The background check report is initiated by you and conducted by an independent third-party background search company. All background checks are conducted in accordance with applicable law.
If a background check was done by a previous employer and I can obtain a copy, will that work?
Unfortunately, Arise cannot accept prior background checks.
What is the step-by-step process for completing a background check?
Once the profile and voice assessments have been completed, the registrant will receive notice through the Arise portal that it is time to complete the background check. At this point, the registrant should be sure to read all details provided as they are important to observe when completing the background check. Following a detailed review the registrant should proceed as follows:
Select ‘Proceed to Website’ button; this will take you to the third-party vendor’s site (First Advantage) where you will provide important identifying details to complete the background check order.
The first part of the order is the ID Verification process
This part must be submitted, paid for, and returned as CLEAR before continuing to the Canadian Criminal Record Check
The second and final part is the Canadian Criminal Record Check. Once you have completed and passed (with a CLEAR result) the ID Verification, you may order the Canadian Criminal Record Check.
This part must be submitted, paid for, and returned as CLEAR before you may continue registration on the Arise® Platform.
Where does the registrant go when they are directed away from the platform registration website to request the background check (vendor, website, etc.)?
After selecting ‘Proceed to Website’ the registrant will be directed to secure website of First Advantage. First Advantage is the third party that provides the background check service.
What information will I have to provide?
You will provide the following details. This information is vital to complete the two-part order process:
Full legal name
All other names you have ever been known by
Date of birth
How can I communicate with the background check vendor?
In the event your account with First Advantage becomes locked, you will need to reach out to First Advantage directly via email: [email protected]
First Advantage may need additional details from you to complete the background check order. If so, requests will likely come from the vendor’s email [email protected] or [email protected]
How long does the process take?
The background check process can take 3-4 business days. Some registrants may find their reports are returned the same day. Entering accurate information can speed up the timeline!
What sort of issues will hinder the outcome of a background check?
Be sure to complete the background check order completely and accurately; provide all details requested. If additional details or verification is required, the vendor will contact you. Current and previous address history may be requested.
How do I dispute a background check if needed?
The dispute process is handled by First Advantage. If an unclear result is returned you will receive communication directly from First Advantage via Canada Post. Arise is unable to assist with any background check dispute.
Do I have to complete a new background check for each opportunity I register or is this a one-time deal?
The registration background check results are good for one year. Should an additional background check be required as part of a client opportunity enrollment, the details will be listed in the opportunity announcement available prior to expressing interest in the opportunity.
