I am currently going through a divorce and looking for a new job. My credit is horrible due to my soon to be ex husband and his spending. This is my dream job and it's been a long 4 week interview process. Today I got the call they are offering my the job and want me to start October 3rd, then they said they are doing a background and credit check. I have very poor credit. Could I lose the job after they already offered it to me?

Other answer:

Keri:
Yes
Casey Y:
Absolutely…that's why they run your credit.

I would have been proactive when they mentioned your credit; hopefully, they will give you a chance to explain, but they don't have to.

Marie K:
if the offer is dependent on the checks you could, however you should get a chance to address the issue with them – you might want to bring it up
wg0z:
Yes.
Judy:
Yes it's possible. good luck.
