    Cons

    Use one manager for one group of people

    Pros

    It’s very fun catching shoplifters!

    Cons

    Working weekends and holidays and nights! Also dealing with shoplifters with guns. There’s a lot of danger involved in this job!! Can’t be scared to deal with some bad individuals.
