This is different from the Background check involved with immigration.
Check the following site and you will get an idea.This is common for several permanent jobs.
Types of background checks differ from the kind of job you are applying and company policies.

most likely credit issues - unless there was some other police record on file. a rare case is when an ex-employer gives a bad review but usually no one does for fear of lawsuits

Default Request a copy of the Background check report

From the link posted by leo2606 (http://jobsearch.about.com/cs/backgr...background.htm)

"If an employer decides not to hire because of this report, they must give you a pre-adverse action disclosure that includes a copy of the report and a copy of your rights. They must then give you notice that they have decided not to hire you and let you know the name and address of Consumer Reporting Agency and information on your right to dispute the report."

So ask the department store for a copy of the report on the basis of which they denied employment.

There is another possibility that your wife had no background info - for e.g no credit cards ( hence no credit history worthwhile ) etc . Sometimes companies ( especially finance or large companies ) don't hire if they don't have enough background info to validate your history. Is that the case.

Typically a Pre Employment Screen Background search include: Verification of identity, SSN, employment history, education, and address history. Checks State and county criminal records, sexual offender, terrorist watch, credit check, bankruptcy. (Federal criminal records available.) Matched by name & birthday.
So there are many reasons why her background check could have failed, and it is wise to get a copy of the background search report purchased by the Department Store. Note that if they did the research themselves, and did not buy the background check, then they do not have to give you a copy.
Another reason that the background check could have failed is if an undocumented worker or an identity thief is also using your wife's SSN.
