“Sorry to hear that you’ve been unemployed since COVID, but things look like they’re improving! Hope you get the job.
While congratulations are in order, you shouldn’t have put down that you’re employed on your loan application. Many things could happen before you officially get the job like the job is made redundant, there’s another strain of COVID, etc. If you haven’t received a formal job offer in writing, you don’t have the job yet.
To answer your question, some dealerships will call your employer to verify your income and employment. But more realistically, they’ll ask for proof of income in the form of W-2s, pay stubs, or tax returns. Since you were unemployed for a year, verifying your income is more difficult. As a result, a dealership will likely call your employer. Because of this, you may want to wait to apply for a loan or withdraw your application until you’re actually employed.
