I applied for a job with an agency 8 months ago, but never worked for them. I received a payroll check from them the other day with my name and address on it and I would like to know if this is criminal?

It would be criminal for you to keep the money knowing that you did not earn it. Do the right thing and notify the agency of their error. You can then offer to send the check back, or destroy it as the agency wishes.
Exactly, do NOT deposit or cash that check.
