The sound of a clothing alarm going off used to haunt me in my dreams. It was for a couple of reasons. One was that the cashiers in my store seemed to forget to deactivate or detach the clothing security tags. Actually some would forget, others claimed they knew which pieces were tagged, so they only had to deactivate those items. Needless to say, the clothing alarms at the doors found a way to go off continually throughout the day.
The other reason was that I was new to the business and every time the alarm went off I would race to my camera system to see who set the alarm off. I was determined to catch someone in the act of stealing, even if they were already out the door.
That was many years ago. I no longer feel the need to prove something to myself or to my stores. I also learned how to train my cashiers better on the importance of proper deactivation. I knew how to explain all the parts of customer service and clothing security and how they are interrelated. I also knew how to explain that if they deactivate correctly the first time, it is that much less work for them later on.
It was a lesson just as much for me as it was for my cashiers. I took something away form those early experiences that helped my success throughout my career.
