So, I am booked in for a face to face interview with the client (IT consulting firm) and I've been asked to fill in a super long online form on the client's website prior to the interview. The form asks for things like 3 references, NI number, 5 years (!) of addresses history, and so on...
I find it really "peculiar" to ask for this type of info at this stage. I'd give this information no problem after they offered me the role, but now? In case I didn't get the role, that would be a lot of info I would give away.
Is it a normal practice?
