How retailers are expanding into delivery markets with a people trust platform
Instacart, Favor Delivery, Petco, McDonalds and retailers alike wanted a retail background check provider to help scale hiring to meet growth demands and protect their brand reputation across markets with differing laws and regulations.
Reason they chose Checkr
- Ease of Use: Instacart scaled by 20X using Checkr with zero infractions found during an external employment agency audit.
- Automation: Favor Delivery reduced time committed to adjudication by 93%.
- Speed to Hire: FCR reduced its background check turnaround time per applicant by 72% resulting in 100% on time starts.

Solutions for the retail industry
A modern experience that empowers candidates
In the retail industry, candidates shop for jobs the same way they shop for products, and the expectations for a seamless, digital experience are high. With our mobile-friendly candidate portal, candidates can submit required personal information digitally, track the status of their background check, and connect with a dedicated live support team.
Scale hiring quickly for peak seasons
The background check landscape is legally complex, which is tricky to navigate when you’re hiring at scale. At Checkr, we’ve created tools to help you manage compliance simply, so you can focus on staffing up without the administrative background check bottleneck. Fill open job reqs and avoid losing candidates due to legacy process inefficiencies.
Protect your workforce and brand reputation
Checkr’s continuous monitoring solution gives you real-time visibility into new, reportable criminal records across your active worker population. This can help you better manage risk for specific roles, such as those that include hazardous working conditions, handling high value merchandise, or contractors that enter sensitive areas like a customer’s home.
