No, but you can use a custom field to accomplish that relatively easily.  Are you aware of how to do this, or do you need assistance?

If you have exchange you can use some of those custom attributes.  There is the whencreated date in AD http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms680924(v=vs.85).aspx

...that will give you the date the account was created (I know that is not usually the first day of work)
