Oil & Gas Industry Employment Background Check

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Oil & Gas Industry is expected to grow by 20+% over the next 10 years. With that vigorous growth comes tremendous opportunity. Yet filling open positions in this industry sector have proved challenging. Factors include a tremendous gap in skilled and qualified applicants combined with an existing workforce that is retiring. Short-term layoffs in the recent past add volatility to the labor pool making it difficult to attract skilled applicants.

REXUS understands and anticipates these hurdles. We help ensure that the best candidates are vetted through our comprehensive employment background screening. From Drug and Alcohol Testing for heavy machinery operators to verifying job experience, our research provides you with the extensive information necessary to make educated hiring decisions.

Our account managers create a custom suite of background checks that incorporate both industry-standard and industry-relevant screening unique to your company.

Our easy-to-use online client portal provides quick access to check the status of requested background checks and to download completed background screening reports.

Drug and Alcohol Testing

Drug and Alcohol Testing is performed at over 6000 collection sites. Urine testing, one of the most common screening methods, is an accurate and reliable way to detect casual drug use that occurred within the past 72 hours. A variety of test panels in addition to the federally mandated (SAMHSA/DOT) 5-drug panel are offered including a 5-panel hair follicle drug test, a 10-panel drug screen and expanded opiates panels for testing of Oxycodone and Hydrocodone.

A National Federal Criminal Records Search retrieves information directly from the Federal District Court repository and identifies criminal convictions on federal charges. This report includes active warrants and open cases listed in the court dockets. Federal courts can be searched by district, state or nationally.

County Criminal Record Search

A County Criminal Records Search provides felony and misdemeanor convictions from the last 7 years per FCRA regulations. When legally reportable, REXUS provides a minimum 10-year search. We work with researchers to access criminal records directly from the courts on both a county and state level.

In addition, when legally reportable, our report includes charges that were dismissed, not prosecuted, entered into pre-trial diversion programs or had suspended sentences.

Statewide Criminal Records Searches are available in over forty states. Statewide record repositories are searched for felony and misdemeanors going back at least seven years.

Sex Offender Registry Search

A Sex Offender Registry Search checks state and federal sex offender registries. The information reported includes full name of the offender, photographs of the offenders (when available), the offense, and the last known address of the offender.

Employment Verification

With an Employment Verification, contact is made with supervisors provided by the applicant to determine an overview of job performance, interpersonal relations, and areas of expertise. Contact is also made with the Human Resources department to verify dates of employment, job title, salary, and eligibility for rehire.

Motor Vehicle Records Search

A Motor Vehicle Records (MVR) Search provide statewide driving records, including Commercial Driver’s License status (CDL) for at least 3 years, up to 7 years depending on the state. Motor Vehicle Records show driving history information including insurance lapses, license suspensions, revocations, accidents, and traffic violations. In some states, convictions for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs are not found on the criminal court record but located on the MVR records.

SSN Trace

An SSN Trace verifies an applicant’s SSN (Social Security Number), past and present addresses and possible aliases or maiden names used. A SSN Trace shows whether the social security number is valid, the state where the number was issued, and whether it is registered to your applicant. An address history is useful when determining where to check criminal records.
