    I worked at Sears

    Pros

    The pay isn't that bad considering you don't need any special licenses or training to do this job. Not even a PERC or Guard card is required.
    As LP you do have some influence in regards to store authority.
    The team I worked with was extremely good at what they did and I actually had a lot of fun tailing people and apprehending them for shoplifting

    Cons

    The pay is crap compared to what every other company is offering. In Chicago Target Asset Protection associates make around 13/hour and at old navy they make 12. I heard that Macy's pays around the same. Toys R Us pays much higher but of course they only have one investigator per store and sometimes per district.

    Generally no one really respects you. In my experience I did alot of things that earned a little more than others but typically people could give a rats ass about what you say.

    When you average out how much it would cost to pay and LP team versus how much merchandise we actually recovered I don't really see any margin for profit.

    The problem in my store was that they had us do crap that wasn't at all LP related. How is cleaning up piss an LP problem? All the merchandise verification is such a large waste of time when I could have been scanning for thieves.

    In the end what did I learn from sears? Not much that I didn't already know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give LP their own jurisdiction instead of taking orders from management.
