Do car dealerships contact your employer?

Do car dealerships always contact your employer? I'm going to finance a vehicle, but I've heard that they contact your employer. I don't get along particularly well with my direct supervisor, but that's probably who they'll talk to.

Sometimes a dealership will contact your employer, but not always.
The reason they would contact your employer is to verify your income, but if you have pay stubs, that’s often enough for most lenders.
If possible, try to give the dealership the contact number of a superior that you have a better relationship with to avoid any unpleasantness.”
