When they say an editor position, I don't think they mean an executive position, like EIC, whomever is in charge of the article selections, etc. Just any 3L position.
And to answer the question, the answer is no. You have to put a minimum of work into the review, no question about it. If you do really poorly, you will get kicked off, or you'll get some sham job just to avoid having to kick you off. Otherwise, if you just aren't that good at cite checking, but try hard and get things done on time, nothing will happen. And unless you have a really overzealous EIC micromanaging everything, it's hard for him or her to know what 2L associates are doing, since their work probably passes through a lot of hands before it gets to the EIC. Unless you perform so badly that you get consistently poor reviews, and your immediate supervisor is complaining all the time, you're fine.
Just put a good faith effort into everything, and try to improve all your cite checking as the year goes on.
