Grow Your Career with First Advantage

Important Announcement

It has been brought to our attention that a small number of US-based job applicants who have applied for open positions with First Advantage (FA) are receiving falsified offers from individuals posing as recruiters for FA.  

Please be advised that a member of the FA Human Resources team would not: send an offer to an applicant without having conducted formal interviews, send applicants a check to purchase their own work equipment, request an applicant’s bank information, or ask applicants for sensitive, personal details during the recruitment process.  

The individuals involved in this apparent effort to commit fraud are not connected with FA, and FA does not take any responsibility for their actions. Applicants who believe they have received fraudulent communications or offers can review tips to protect oneself from these scamming attempts on the Federal Trade Commission (FTC)’s website here,, and report fraud to them directly here: Additionally, any applicant who wants to report suspected fraud to FA directly can share relevant details and communications with our Customer Care team, using this form:

Who We Are

Our DE&I Vision
Operating with empathy and compassion, First Advantage fosters a global inclusive workforce devoted to the diverse voices that make up our talent and products. Our team members empower each other to be their authentic selves and treat all with respect, integrity, and fairness.

With the purpose of ensuring every employee can bring their “whole selves” to work, First Advantage celebrates all people by continuously fostering inclusion, nurturing ideas, and respecting values.

You are empowered to be your whole self at work, and we appreciate who you are outside of your deliverables. From the support of our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) to our supplier partnerships with local businesses and communities to our customized development programs, we welcome all perspectives and elevate those who will guide us into a better future for all.

We believe continuous learning is a key part of our growth and satisfaction as human beings. Whether it’s through on-the-job training, leadership development in SOAR, 30k+ custom courses in our Employee Advantage e-learning portal, or our tech workforce programs in Pluralsight, lifelong learning is supported and part of who we are here at First Advantage.

In 2019, the organization implemented a robust training program for front-line and emerging leadership known as SOAR. The SOAR Program is a six-month learning experience designed to empower managers and build leaders. By participating in the program, employees receive the tools they need to effectively manage themselves and their teams while growing as leaders in a fast-paced, technology-driven organization. To-date, the program has trained more than 100+ people managers and positively impacted team members around the globe.

Additionally, all employees have access to Employee Advantage, a training curriculum resource library that houses more than 3,000 modules on a wide variety of topics. Technology employees also have access to improve their skills through Pluralsight, a resource library curated for technologists.

We strive for all of our employees to work in an environment where they are treated with dignity and respect.
