You expect me to give it to you straight, right?  Of course you do.

(#Everyone) That’s why we recently onboarded Chequed.com as an annual sponsor at FOT, where they’ll sponsor posts like this one, allowing FOT contributors to write without restriction on all things related to pre-hire screening and testing.  Since some FOTers call bad hires “scrubs,” Chequed.com has also signed up to sponsor a FOT video …

It’ll be worth my time, my money and probably get my wholehearted recommendation. Why just one thing? Like many of my peers, I’m always bringing my “A” game, usually one thing can steam roll and give me a way to …
