    Well this may be a stupid question but I've never been asked information for a credit check when I have applied for any part-time job. (I'm 16 btw)

    Just wanted to know what exactly is a credit check... -_- The online form wants me to provide house details (how long I've been living there, previous house address etc)

    Once again, sorry if I have some how offended anyone with this possible stupid question.

    Thanks.

    Basically it is so that they can check your credit history. As you are 16, I doubt you even have any history to be honest.

    Oh right that's what I thought it was but I wanted to be sure, thanks.
