    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Duane Reade (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I went to a job fair September 28 and a day later (29) received a call to go in for store interview for the 30. Not sure if it went good or bad, meet some of the staff interviewed with assistant manager. I was told I'm waiting on the rest of my background check to be reviewed and that was on 7 of October. So almost two weeks and haven't heard anything back. Is that a bad thing? How long does the back ground check take?
