What does 'pre-screened' mean for job application?

    Title really says it all. I'm concerned because I do have a criminal record (getting a pardon very soon).

    My understanding of the term 'pre-screened' means the giant pile of resumes was fed into an automated system that makes selections based on certain keywords; those 'pre-screened' resumes are then examined by people for further consideration.
