Employment process.?

1 1/2 weeks ago, I had an interview with Sentry Insurance as a Claims Technician. About 4 days ago, I was contacted by the HR Deparment in regards of taking a drug test; said I was in the next process of employment. Sentry Insurance paid for the drug test. Also, they said a background check would be performed on me. I know that my background is clean, and I don't use any drugs so that's clear. Does this mean I have the job if they say I'm in the next process of employment since they gave me a drug test and background check? When I asked the HR Department about the job, they said they would review the tests once they receive them. Am I jumping to conclusions by thinking I have the job or are they just not interested in hiring me?

the background check doesn't pertain to drugs. it checks whether you have broken any laws or have been to court. they are also checking to see if you indeed attended the educational institutions you said you attended and worked at other places you said you did. This takes time so I'd hang tight. Just because you... More
