I've not seen that very much. If they ask, it's generally not mandated. I personally wouldn't do it initially because if they're serious about you, they'll have you fill out a formal application that will include more detail than is traditionally collected via an online recruiting system. It's then that they run a credit report on you, if they're going to, more often than not. That's the whole reason they're asking for it. More and more employers run credit reports. Rightly or wrongly, they're increasingly using credit worthiness as a way to determine whether a candidate will make a suitable employee.
