The company offers the means to both identify, and to counteract, negative commentary from former employers.
Shane recently submitted information about the business through the Patch Small Business Spotlight.
Here are his answers.
What does your business offer?
The means to both identify, and to counteract, negative commentary from former employers that might prevent a job seeker from gaining new employment.
What's your most popular product or service?
The reference check - the service that is described above.
What's a fact about your business that most customers probably don't know?
The majority of job seekers are not even aware that a service such as Allison & Taylor even exists. We have helped countless job seekers get their employment efforts back on track.
When was the business founded?
How did your business come to be?
From the realization that countless job seekers were losing out on new employment due to unfavorable references their former employers were giving to prospective new employers. The service enables job seekers to identify (their) possible negative references and gives them recourse to discourage future negative commentary from previous employers.
Why did you choose the area you did?
See immediately above - at that time (1984) there were no companies in the United States doing what we do now.
