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 and my application once they receive them. Am I jumping to conclusions by thinking I have the job or are they just not interested in hiring me?
