Criminal Background Check:
All employees and volunteers of the American Red Cross must successfully complete a nation-wide criminal background check through a single, mandatory vendor ( before they begin their service. This vendor was chosen for its reputation of maintaining a high level of security. Social Security numbers are encrypted immediately so that no one - including the chapter administrator and vendor employees - can view them. You can also be assured that your background check will not include a credit check. The Red Cross has only authorized verification of your Social Security number and a search of the National Criminal File (for the past seven years).
