So if you get rejected after being shortlisted, don't worry too much about it. Unless you have criminal records, you're just put on hold in case those who got offered don't take the offer... and if they do take the offer then they'll of course reject you.
Wait, but if they reject you it means that you didn't pass the background checks right? Even so there's still a possibility of them offering you if others don't take the offer?

Or do you mean that they reject because of other reasons like hitting some quota? Then in this case why send the shortlist email and give ppl hope
