Was anyone else a client of EBI for background checks and recently moved to Sterling? I'm getting ZERO customer service or response from them. EBI was bad, but Sterling appears to be worse. Wondering if anyone else is having the same issues?

ALSO, looking into a new vendor. Currently checking out Global HR Resources and First Advantage. Would love feedback on either, or to hear of any other BG providers you love (just looking for basic employment and criminal searches, no drug testing).

We moved away from Sterling to HireRight in the US, but have used First Advantage outside the US for a while. We have occasional hiccups with both; but not as many as we did with Sterling

We use HireRight as well. We really like it and think it is worth the money.

Moved from Sterling to Hire right and felt Sterling was frequently non responsive to simple inquiries

We switched from Vero (awful) to RAI (research associates) recently and they've been great so far
