I'm thinking of applying for job as a night auditor at hotels. Should I put down my SS# on the form?
I've searched Google for answers and some people say:
I would say yes. If you don't your'e app will probably end up in the waste bin. Employers need your'e social to check you out. They first will use it to make sure you are not an illegal. Then they will want it for your w2 forms etc, etc. If you apply online for a job, theres no way you will even get past the first page without putting it down.While another one says:yes. Without it the company cannot do a comprehensive background check. Nor will your application even be looked at.
I'm confused as to what to do.No omitting it shouldn't lesson your chance of being hired. I wouldn't put it on the application, just put available upon hire. At my work, we tell applicants that they should never put their SSN on any applications ever, only supply it once you are offered a solid job offer. Many employers currently don't shred your applications like they are supposed to, or they file them away in an unlocked cabinet that anybody who worked there could get into. Don't put your SSN you are right to be nervous, if they don't hire you because of it, a. that shouldn't be a problem, and b. do you really want to work for them?
Another thing I was wondering was, should I just put my name, number, and position applying for, to save time? Or should I have to fill out all that out in application which can be time consuming?
