Screening Processing Time

Updated 4 months ago by Celeste Hayes

You're eager to work and we're eager to help you get to work!

Once we approve all credentials, the last part to making sure your application is compliant are the pre-employment screenings.

Unfortunately Matchwell has no control over the timing it takes for the pre-employment screens to be processed.

General Processing Time Guidelines

We've worked very closely with our vendors to come up with a general timeline to help you understand the timing behind pre-employment processing.

Background Checks

Most States: typically within 3-5 business days

*Please see below for additional timeframes for states that have exceptions. 

GA: about 2 weeks (if fingerprinting required additional time may apply)

FL: about 3-5 business days (without fingerprinting); about 1 week (with fingerprinting)

OH : about 2 weeks (with fingerprinting)

MS : about 2 weeks (with fingerprinting)

Drug Screen Checks

All States: typically within 2-4 business days


How did we do?
