Reference Checking & Background Check Questions

What are some reference checking methods?

What is the best method to use when checking references? Although third party reference checking is a good means by which to secure objective and accurate references, the immediate supervisor should make every effort to check with the construction executive's previous construction employer(s) and construction personally ask the questions that determine if he construction executive has the required competencies. When doing reference checks it is always better to meet in construction executive with a reference. A supervisor will learn more over lunch about the construction executive and the credibility of the construction executive's reference, than over the telephone.
