They do check your credit but I have awful credit from being out of work due to health issues, surgery and other unexpected stuff come up. They still offered me a position and I'm pretty sure I have over $6000 in debt. They haven't told me I need to make arrangements with them or even brought it up. I was more worried about it than them! It may be different in different states or different recruiters but don't give up! I didn't think I stood a chance with my credit even though they picked me for the job.

We do not check credit score. If you have over $6,000 in accounts in bad standing, we will work with you on payment arrangements. Keep in mind that your job offer is contingent and based off your ability to pass this check.

I don't know about credit, but in the Winchester, VA call center at least, if you have over $3000 in delinquent debt you may not get hired. They generally try to work with you to get scheduled payments going with the debt collector tho. I know this because this happened to me.
