I got my start in retail working for a clothing store. It was simple. Clothing security seemed to be pretty cut and dried. You put security tags on clothes and watch for people trying to steal your stuff.
While I have progressed my career with more complicated situations and cases, I still have a fondness for working in basic clothing security. Checkpoint tags were, and still are a staple. Shoplifters tend to follow the basic patterns of theft.
Now don’t think that there isn’t any skill or thought required to work in clothing security. There are plenty of both. Understanding that Checkpoint tags are only as good as the people using them and monitoring them.
Simply having security tags on clothes does not prevent shoplifters from stealing.
What I liked about the job was the simplicity to just do my job. It was about case production and making sure that clothing alarms were taken seriously. It wasn’t about getting involved in three hundred other P & L statement corrections and explanations, or in overseeing human resources issues.
I am happy with where my career has taken me, but every now and again, its nice to just be an agent who is focused on shoplifting.
There is a very rewarding feeling knowing that each shoplifter you sop makes a positive contribution to the community you work in.
