    I worked at Sears

    Pros

    In my job as a Loss Prevention Associate, I didn't have to abide by a specific dress code, had a great boss, and a laid back and knowledgeable team of fellow associates to help out.

    Cons

    On many occasions, the job became a convoluted game of politics. You were told to avoid certain members of management or avoid getting fired or taken advantage of. You were also hindered in your ability to do your job by the same members of management, who would not take your observations regarding safety.

    Also, at certain stores, they will not inform Loss Prevention employees that are seasonal that they are not being kept until the very last minute (when the store is preparing to close), leaving you in the lurch. Also, at present, funding for Loss Prevention is kind of shaky, so you may be working the absolute minimum number of hours or be let go since there are no hours to give.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more receptive to the information of your low level associates.
