Since you posted it worded the way you did, I assume that means that they are pulling a credit report. If, in fact, that is true. They probably do it the same reason other employers do it. Specifically, if several candidates were otherwise well qualified for a position, the one with a great credit report will likely be selected over others with poor credit reports. I think the prevailing thought is that if they are capable of handle financial matters they might be a good employee.
