Now I know the world has gone crazy
when Goodwill advertises a position in their stores and requires a background and credit check WTF do they think their "customer base" is anyway? Yes, it's people who are unemployed or the "working poor" etc for the most part. Are these people not a non proft that is allegedly set up to help exactly the people that MAY have issues passing a BG or (especially in this economy) a credit check FFS ? Last time I donate anything their way.

Not in the ad...
They'll just use that as a filter to determine who gets backs. <BR

Not in this area. It's mostly immigrants, both
recent and not so recent. Anyone who's a cashier would be handling cash and credit cards

It was a supervisory position
but still....you would think Goodwill would at least be ONE organisation that could see the reasoning why some may have difficulties passing a credit check in this economy - just sayin' (bet they expect an unbroken employment record as well

No doubt. I can see store manager having
such a requirement. They supervise others and are responsible for the receipts. I think they're doing pretty well these days and they handle a large volume of cash and credit/debit card transactions. Their parking lot is generally packed when I go by the store in this area

all well and good except that
I have yet to read any definitive study where it has been proven that a poor credit history (especially if due to long term unemployment) makes that person a risk either for future employment or insurance etc. In fact anecdotally, if you look at the people like Madoff et al, I bet they had GREAT credit.......... IMHO it's the honest folks that are struggling to keep their credit looking good
