I have never had an interview where they don't ask, besides my first job interviews where I had never been employed before. How do you avoid it if you can't control what they're asking?You should never be giving a new employer any indication of your previous salary anyway. How are they renegotiating like that? If you have already signed an employment contract then they cannot force you to accept a lesser salary. If you have not signed anything then you can simply walk away with no repercussions to you.
