Or too much information on an application.
We only ask on the application what we can legally ask; Name, address, SSI, what position you want, Education, Job History, and references
Therefore, yes I do need to know that your were convicted of a crime.
I do not need to know the details of the highspeed chase with the police.
The entire story about your two disfunctional marriages is not necessary.
The ex-you went back to but then left again because of abuse, I am sorry about, but I have no need to know.
Nor do I need to know anything else about your rather wild and dubious past.
Nor are references from 4 different police agencies necessarily good.
And no, I am not interviewing this person.
