Pre-Employment Investigations, Inc. is such a wonderful company to utilize for background investigation services. I have been working alongside them for the last few years and have nothing but pleasant experiences, in what can be an awkward part of the hiring process. Kimberly and her staff are very supportive and involved throughout the entire process! All of the staff are friendly, professional, helpful, and timely with any questions, issues, or feedback you may necessitate. The team is diligent, especially during this time of COVID where businesses and government offices are struggling with inconsistent work schedules and short staffing. They are fair and honest and most importantly, everyone handles each matter confidentially and appropriately. Lastly, the online portal is easy to use for both the candidate and employer which makes the process that much easier! I would highly recommend PEI to my peers!

We started working with Kimberly Young and Pre-Employment Investigations, Inc. in 2018. We required in-depth background checks on multiple officers of our company for an Insurance License application. Kimberly walked us through the entire process and provided us with everything we needed to obtain the license successfully. Because of her exceptional customer service, we also utilized PEI when we were hiring for a position that required a high level of confidentiality and integrity. PEI was very responsive and created a comprehensive report containing all the information we needed to decide. Kimberly is always just a phone call or email away to answer any questions and provide assistance or guidance and is Falvey’s go-to company for all investigative services.
