It took me about a week to get hired. The manager would ask for your drivers license so they copy it and send it to HR so they can run a background check.

About a month. Filled out app in store, had in spot interview. Received a phony call about a week or two later. Had to attend a orientation and drug testing at the main head quarters. Had to call the store afterwards to check to seek if I passed everything and was given a schedule.
