Why do some job applications require you to put in days of employment?

    I understand using months and years but why do some companies feel the need to ask for a specific day when applying? It's so annoying as I never remember my exact beginning and end dates.

      Hmm, never thought of that. I would also find that rather annoying, I guess you can always call the old company and have them check their records but that seems like an awful pain.

    I've ended up making a guess as they don't let you skip the day. I mean if they want a background check or will call the employer they can get the exact day. I don't know why they want it on the application.
