What does this mean?
I had an interview today for a job. The manager said that she would check my references and check my background then get back to me. Does that mean I got the job? Or does it mean it's promising? I'm a little confused on what it all means.

Nope. I just means they're going to call your references. If anyone gives you a poor review, they'll go with someone else.

RE: What does this mean?
Typically if they're doing a background check, then they've decided to hire you pending a clear review. There typically is cost involved so they're not going to do a background check just for kicks.

So unless you're a serial killer, congrats!

No, she'll check out your references and your background to see if you are an acceptable candidate. This may only be phase one where she weeds out the unacceptable ones to get a final list. You may even have another interview if you pass this round.

Be cool. It takes a while. Smile

Usually it's neither positive or negative. It's a step that many companies take before considering you at all.

She probably hated you and said that because she didn't want to hurt your feelings by telling you you have no hope.

Yes. Like the HellboundPreacher pointed out background checks require an investment from the employer. That means it's promising.

I think you got it. Thumbsup
