The employees will be fired for exposing themselves to such risk.

These are women I would never go out with, because they always have their panties in a bunch.

I've worked retail and restaurants during my teen and college years. Every place I've been at had it spelled out in detail "DON'T TRY TO STOP A ROBBERY. WE HAVE INSURANCE FOR THAT. YOU ARE PUTTING YOURSELF AND EVERYONE ELSE IN GRAVE DANGER. WE WILL FIRE YOU FOR TRYING TO STOP A ROBBERY." Why do I keep hearing about people trying to stop robberies from their workplace?

Want to hear something really shocking? I took the kids back-to-school shopping and our local Sears has stopped selling clothes. THE SEARS DOES NOT SELL CLOTHES.

If Sears' Loss Prevention department was serious, wouldn't they be raiding the next Board of Directors meeting?

I worked at a clothing store where my boss tried to stop this lady shoplifter who was basically shoving clothes in a trash bag. He stopped her before she left the store. She would up biting his hand and he had to go to the hospital. On top of that as he was detaining the shoplifter, a crowd formed outside the store to watch it all and for some reason was yelling at my manager to let her go! So he would up getting bitten and let the lady go because she caused such a commotion.

But to be fair, in the article it was Loss Prevention who stopped the ladies, not a regular employee trying to stop them. It's Loss Prevention's job to get the shoplifters.

Sear will fire both employees. Everyone knows there is a two employee limit for each store. Only one should have gone to the parking lot.

Because my policy which says robbers are dicks and need biatch-slapped trumps your policy which says stand around with your thumb up your asshole.

Actually, there is no mention of loss prevention at all in the article. Only in the Fark headline.

Williams and Campbell are charged with strong arm robbery. Campbell was also charged with aggravated assault with a motor vehicle, police said.

The stolen underwear was not recovered.

If it's my home then yes, I'll do everything in my ability to make sure they die on my floor. If I come out of a store and someone is cutting the lock off my bike, then yes. If it's stealing from a company that has specifically told me not to do anything because they don't think they're property is worth the risk, I'll respect their wish. It's not worth getting hit by a car, then fired, then sued by my former employer because someone stole what amounts to $20 at-cost and the store will get reimbursed for their loss.

I miss the days when companies weren't so afraid of lawsuits...

One of the many shoplifters encountered when I was in high school kicked the assistant manager in the nads when she was confronted. He crumbled, she ran... about 10 feet until the gal working the salad bar (who played rugby with the local college club) closelined her and subdued her rather forcefully.

Both gals (shoplifter and salad bar gal) were hotties, so it was rather a pleasure to watch them tussling on the floor for a bit (employee break room had a glass partition over the selling area... would have been over by the time we got down to help her).

Pretty much the only day I enjoyed working there...

Exactly.

I support anyone who wants to go on a biatch-slapping campaign against criminals in this country, but your first stop on the tour needs to be Washington D.C. or Wall Street.

Stand up to the real thieves before you go around slapping bottom-feeding shoplifters.

Feh. I disagree vehemently. Trying to stop the theives is simply the right thing to do. Screw the store policies. Its about more than the risk/profit/loss to the store. This affects everyone, not just one particular store on one particular day. Every time we let cruds like these folks walk away they are emboldened. We tell them, "its ok. Go ahead and steal. We dont really mind all that much."

It's not like we don't go after them. We just let the authorities do it instead of us.

Ahhh. Someone who understands the retail pain of LP.

Nevermind you caught them with $400 of your merchandise. Give them six months probation. They do it again
Another 2 years. They do it again. 30 days in jail, 29 suspended.

I work lp so I'm really getting a kick out of most of these replies....

honestly im pretty surprised Sears has LP right now too...theyre in trouble and thats usually one of the first things they consolidate. If your primary focus is just external theft youre costing more than you saving. Thats why other companies branch out their LP and expand their responsibilities

Cool. Where do you work? I...'m sure there are plenty of people who'd love to steal from your company over and over, knowing they won't be stopped at all!

how much Sears women's underwear can $450 buy? is there a big market for black-market panties (unused ones, i mean), or did they just need 2 or 300 pairs of panties?

everything in moderation, ladies.

If you're going to shoplift (and I'm not suggesting that you do), don't shoplift at a place where you are the only damn customer in the store, such as Sears.

My nearest Sears and K-Mart are both beyond sad. I rarely find anything I need in there, and there is always 6 people in line at the only register that's open (K-Mart), and I swear there is a price check needed for every customer. Sears has no lines, but you have to find someone to man a register and take your money.

It's only a matter of time before they are history.

One nice thing about Disneyland loss prevention is that we had the power and the management support to do something that would really hurt these fools--revoke their annual pass. Yep, a lot of our shoplifters were annual passholders (those entitled biatches), and when we caught them shoplifting, not only did they get arrested and charged, we ALSO took their passes and made sure they couldn't get another one for at least a year.

One dumb woman had just bought her pass THAT DAY, and she wanted her money back after we revoked it. After my boss stopped laughing, she said, "No," and we escorted woman and her family out. Fun times.

Nah I tend to buy certain sear's tools - they do make some good tools still - I put a craftman drill/saw/sawzall set to hell and back doing commercial work, have a rigid set for backup or tough jobs like concrete or pressure treated wood.
For home use its an awesome tool set, commercially... not strong enough most of the time, but I rather have something half the weight and lasts just as long for half the price.

I laugh when they asked me if I wanted get a sears card, I explained it was first time in 6 years i shopped with them, besides mostly being over priced, sears is to far out of my way with Lowes and Home depot walking distance.
 
2012-09-09 05:17:35 PM
I'm an asset protection manager for a large retail chain. If I were to follow a shoplifter into the parking lot and approach their vehicle, I would be fired. I would expect to be fired. The company makes very clear what their expectations are.

/spend most of my time investigating associates and ORC.
