Pawn Shop Employment Background Checks

Pawn Appraisers Background Checks


The pawn shop business is faced with the challenge of hiring and retaining a wide range of high quality and honest employees.

 The Pawn Shop owner must be confident that the people hired can be trusted to  

operate in the utmost good faith.

Employees often work without a coworker or supervisor on site. In the face of sometimes minimal pay and many opportunities to access company property and funds, the need for a quality pre-employment background check is evident.

The Pawnbroker business is regulated by a wide variety of federal, state, and local regulations. Compliance with these regulations is required. IRS regulations, the US Patriot Act, the Truth in Lending Act, and others are to be strictly followed.

A thorough criminal records background check is an employers first line of defense in protecting the company’s assets, fellow employees and customers.


Our Criminal Records “Smart Search®” is an industry standard criminal records background check of state and county criminal records.


1. A multi-state criminal background check Including a check of the sex offender registry in all 50 states.

3. County or State criminal background checks from any county or State of residence based on the last 7 years social security number address history, from counties or states not already included in the multi-state criminal background check.
