No thank you.
I don't even use my real address at work. This was accidental at first. Whoever processed my paperwork put the hospital's street address instead of my home address. Trying to fix it was such an ordeal that I gave up. Many months into my employment, someone told me to not use my real address because too many people have access to my records. Lots of vindictive people work at the hospital, so not revealing my true address is an added layer of protection.
Paychecks are available for pick-up in a little office. The man places the piles in plain view, addresses visible to anyone standing nearby. I myself have noted addresses of some people because of this set-up.
