I am new to the job market out of HS and I'm looking for jobs to collect money before I go to college. While filling out multiple forms, I couldn't help but notice how many asked for previous addresses. I'd like to know why the employer needs my previous addresses. The reason is because I just moved, but I've heard that employers use this information for things like trying to decide how long I'll be able to work there and if it's worth my time.
Can somebody please explain what employers usually look for when they ask for previous addresses?
