Applied on Thursday, called on Monday, interviewed on Thursday, drug tested at interview (was a good sign I was getting a job), Thursday afternoon store manager called and offered me a job, I accepted, Saturday the official offer came via email along with background check questionnaire and phone call to answer any questions. All the tests and background check should come back by Tuesday and I would start Wed. So almost two weeks. But, I have a feeling that this particular store is an exception...I had a really great experience with the interview as well.

Interviewed the 13th of February. Assistant Store Manager made me a job offer on the spot and I accepted the position. Was told I would be called in for background and drug test within the week. Today is the 28th and have heard nothing. Lousy hiring practices. People want to work not wait around for weeks.

It should only take a few weeks for that. They review application, perform phone interview, a store interview, and if hired, you will hear within a matter of days. You need to appear to the Human Resources office to take a drug test and give personal information for background check and this takes maybe 2 days.
