    First LP job and was almost my last...

    Loss Prevention Associate (Former Employee) Richmond, VA

    ProsMy manager would let me come and go as I wanted. This was great because I was in college and would come and work full shifts after school. I was part time but would work 39.5 hours. The store manager was a great one. He knew his stuff and was personable. I did learn some things that I still use today in my LP career.

    ConsThe DLPM was severely unprofessional. He would yell at my manager and treat the LP staff like we were trash. My manager did have a hard time with the job, but don't act like that to people. My manager was a good guy, but went on a leave of absence that turned to him leaving. This turned to the ops manager creating the schedule and saying she could only give me 10 hours a week, when I was the only LP at that point. Other managers stepped in to help the store but they were also on the same path as the DLPM. Between the scheduling and the lack of leadership, I left the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave people in LPM and DLPM position that work and deserve the position. People that can talk to their staff without making them feel as though they are horrible. If someone needs coaching, that's one thing. Degrading them is another.

    SHC has been an experience that has taught me a lot about politics in corporate America.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsAt Sears, the scheduling flexibility for the management team is a plus.

    ConsChallenges in working at SHC is the lack of leadership training for its management team. Continuous educations promotes growth and innovation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFrontline management has a direct impact on our organization. Give them the autonomy to make strategic decisions to improve the member experience. As well as, pay managers based on education and experience.
