What does it mean to pass pre employment bAckground check??

Asked about 2 years ago - Redding, CA

I was cited for petty theft misdemeanor and the charge later got reduced to petty theft infraction. My question is later in my life when I apply for a job and they ask me that I do have to pass the pre employment background check. Would I be able to pass it with petty theft infraction .
