If you don't want to put your work history down on a job application, can they find out you previously worked elsewhere?

So I've had a few crappy jobs where I unfortunately was in a difficult situation and got fired from, not all of my terminations was because I was misbehaving, either. I know this has caused me to not get a job before because of my previous work and I was just wondering if I didn't put my work history down

Is there any way they can look that up? And if so, is there any job recommendations that I could apply to (maybe like franchises) that wouldn't care as much for my previous working experience? Please help, thanks.

In most cases, employers don't bother cross checking previous employment unless it's a very critical job/position you are applying for i.e. security, financial and anything else which needs an extension background check.

Yes, they can find out. You can likely get away with not putting down a very brief job, liked a week or so but, not all of them. Find a way to explain why you left – why you were fired.
CORY:
Yes a background check will show your previous work history.
