on an interview does the words..we are seeing other candidates = you didn't get the job?

No. In my most recent interview they told me they were seeing other candidates and I still ended up getting the job. I think they're just trying to be honest and letting you know the timeline might be slow because of the others they need to interview.

No it doesn't mean that. It's either transparence and truth, or just to make you stress a bit.

thank you for the responses. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
