Doesn't it bother you how much information companies ask for on job applications?

Personally, it worries me giving out my Social Security Number up front.

Ha ha! A comedian!:P

Well, I might be willing to pose buck naked before handing over my SSN to ever *potential* employer in the county?!

Any one could have picked those up, walked outside, and had stolen 5-6 people's identity in a split second.
