    Up to you if you want to be truthful, but if you are putting down that you're making 60k working as a Walgreens checkout clerk I think it may raise a few eyebrows.

    They have no way of checking past salaries that I know of.

    No, I'm pretty sure it's illegal to give that out. I always "fudge" my salary up a bit (not so much that it is unbelievable of course)...
