do you do background checks?

I was wondering who does background checks on new hires? I've got varying prices for having them done but would like some input and ideas from those of you that use them. Thanks for any input.

If they breathe, and have a car, they're hired. Just kidding. I havent done any of that, I can get a pretty good feel just from the application and an interview.

I've contacted the local sheriff dept, and they said to give them their drivers license, ss#, address, b-day, etc and they would run one for me. I don't know how intensive it is, but its better then none. I figure asking for id, and telling them whats it going to be used for will weed alot of people I don't want to hire. Small fee under 5.00 I believe is what they said.
