For the most part it's a good working environment. I worked there for almost 7 years in management. The company got a new CEO a couple years ago so the culture has become a little different and more numbers focused than people focused since then. Overall it is a decent company to work for though. The benefits and flexibility are also nice as long as you can handle retail hours.

It depends on the day and what you're zoned to do. Could be 4-8 hour shifts. The times vary based on tasks to do and your availability.

YES, every person hired gets a background check. Once you complete the check it comes back within a few hours to the store. It's a quick process which is why you can be hired on potentially the same day or the day after your interview.

You will need to get the proper form from management and have them fax it in once it's filled out. It will be part of your new employment paperwork also so you only need to ask for it if you don't fill it out initially.
