How do you handle requests for your salary in previous positions on a job application? Personally, I'd prefer not to list it to prevent the company from using it against me when it comes to salary negotiations if an offer is extended. Is it OK, to put N/A on an application for salary when filling out the employment history section?

I thought that was one of the few things they could find out from your previous employer.

I could be wrong though. :)
