Our Clients
What Our Clients Say
  • “We have been a client of Private Eyes for almost a year and it has been a great partnership. Their customer service is top notch and I have found this with each of the staff members I have interacted with at Private Eyes. The response time to inquiries exceeds our expectations and the reports are easy to read. We have increased the number of background check data to collect on our new hires and are still paying less than what we did with our previous vendor. We have increased the quality of our background checks through Private Eyes and have decreased the cost. That has been a win-win for our organization! I would highly recommend Private Eyes as a vendor to meet your organization’s background check needs.”

    St. Anthony’s Medical Center
  • “We have been thrilled with the service we have received from Private Eyes. Though we are a relatively small firm, my Account Manager is very responsive if I have a question.”

    Cogent Energy

Private Eyes Inc is an innovative, organized, efficient organization that builds and maintains an excellent relationship with their customers. Private Eyes Inc employees have exceptional communication skills and have the ability to adapt to any of your changing needs. In summary, I highly recommend Private Eyes Inc for any of your pre-employment needs. They will be a valuable asset to your organization.”

    Coca-Cola Enterprises
  • “I am so impressed with the customer service I have received from Private Eyes. One of the things that separates Private Eyes from their competitors is the personal attention I receive from my account manager and other staff members. If I have any problems, I know I can contact a person at the company and my issue will be a high priority. Other services do not give that kind of personal attention. Even though we are a small company, I feel like we are treated as if we were one of Private Eye’s most important clients and that is what I look for in a vendor relationship. I am so glad we switched to Private Eyes!”
