You really have to wait and see whether they press charges. It seems that from past experience, Wal Mart is pretty relentless about pushing local authorities to prosecute such crimes, but if you have a good rapport with the manager maybe she'll take pity on you. A future employer would of course see any atrest if there is one, and the likely resolution if such a charge (stealing under $500) would be a plea bargain. Thus, you would be ineligible for an expungement of the arrest. I recommend do your best to convince her to take pity on you.

If Walmart decides to file a police report about the incident, the Prosecutor has 1 year from date of incident to prosecute you. If the manager decides not to file a police report, Walmart will probably still pursue you for reimbursement of their "damages" by having their lawyer send you a "civil demand letter," in which Walmart demands that you pay $250. It may take a few weeks to receive that letter if they decide to go that route.
If you are charged with criminal stealing, you will need to hire a lawyer to represent you if you want to avoid having a stealing conviction on your criminal record. Your lawyer can negotiate a plea bargain with the prosecutor to get the charge reduced to a lesser offense.

This person will never work at Wal-Mart again. As for a background check, if the police were not involved there should not be any criminal case in court which is good news. Retain an attorney. DO NOT pay the civil demand. QUIT STEALING.
