Lookup Social Security Number

Can prospective employers look up your past employers and how much you earned with your social security number? Maybe by looking up your W-2's or something?

I heard of a place (not sure if it is a rumor) by me that just wants you name address and SS number when you apply, and they look up information about you with that. I know they can run your credit report, and DMV records, but can they find previous employers?
