“The staff members of Hire Image are true professionals, especially Lisa Trahan and Tom Tomlinson. We conduct hundreds of background searches every year. Sometimes our clients require very specific information that our staff just does not have the resources to provide. In these instances, we call upon Hire Image whose work is commendable and response time is implausible. I highly recommend the team at Hire Image to anyone seeking employee screening services.”

“For many years, we’ve used Hire Image for all our drug testing and criminal background searches. They are courteous, extremely helpful, friendly and fabulous to work with. If I didn’t think so, I wouldn’t refer my clients to them. I recommend them to everybody because they go above and beyond – they’re all about customer service. I get my results back fast and can conveniently set up everything online. Because of the quick turnaround time, my clients are happier because I can get their candidate to work in 48 hours. Hire Image helps me do my job better.”


Staffing Manager, Staffing Agency

“We’ve used Hire Image’s drug testing services for several years and recently expanded to using them for our criminal background checks, education verifications and credit checks. We chose them over other background screening companies because of their competitive prices, but soon learned they really go out of their way to personally make their clients happy and satisfied. The Hire Image customer service team, especially Lisa Trahan, Tom Tomlinson and Christine Cunneen, is very attentive, and bend over backwards to accommodate our needs. They deliver quality results with fast turnaround time. I would not hesitate to recommend them to others. “
