Not true..Most employers in most states don't go back further than 7-10 years. I think Texas has this same restriction but caps the income levels, then it no longer applies.

I know this not because I stole and needed to know it for that reason, but because I work in healthcare and the industry does background checks.

To the OP, aside from being really odd you felt the need to post this here, don't steal. Not simply because it is wrong, but because it's also not fair to all the hard working folks who choose to (in good conscience) pay for their belongings.

i live in texas and im 18 btw.

please help im really scared as to what is going to happen.
Of all places you stole from Walmart? Ha ha just kidding, I wouldn't be to worried just try to clean your criminal history and avoid getting yourself in to these type of situations again, BTW legally you're not suppose to enter any more Walmarts but I'm sure you can go to other ones with no problem.

My minor Daughter was in Walmart with a friend. Her friend stole a bottle of eyedrops. Although she did not know she did so, she was in the same isle with her when she took them. Walmart pulled her in with her friend and did not call me, the parent, and told her she is an accompless and will be fined along side her shoplifting friend. I am retaining an attorney.

First, this thread is three years old.

Second, is that according to Walmart, or your daughter? I don't see them stopping your daughter and her friend over a bottle of eye drops. I would be willing to bet it was much more than that, and your daughter was more involved than what you've been told. Was your daughter arrested or given a citation by the police?

I would ask to seethe video if possible.

Anyhow, I remember when they opened our first Super Walmart. It looked like a chain gange! I mean every night for the first week they would have a row of people cuffed and waiting on the police near the front door.

Walmart loss prevention is a mixed bag.

A friend has a firm that tests Loss Prevention and Walmart is rated below average.

His people once walked out with $50K from one store in one day.

Other stores, they get caught right away.

One place you do not want to try to steal from is Walt Disney.

Walt Disney is crazy...hell, they finger print you at the front gate! They say it's for your ticket protection but who knows...
