You are right! References are perceived by some recruiter companies as a waste of time. These recruiters are more interested in what a person can bring to the company table; that is their experience, strengths, skills, and capabilities. However, if you are a small business in places such as Smyrna or Dunwoody, where the crime rate is a little on the high side, you may want to reconsider your stance on a reference check. You do not want to be away for a couple of days or weeks and have to worry if your business is in safe hands.
Lesson: References are important! They help you hire a candidate who you can trust with your business.
