A job to help gain experience and learn
Loss Prevention Investigator (Former Employee) – Belleville, ON – 15 June 2017
A typical work day included regular foot patrols, monitoring the CCTV cameras, Issuing parking violations, Administering First Aid, Responding to accident reports and near misses. I gained a valuable set of transferable skills that are useful in the security and law enforcement field. The greatest skill that I learned was how to effectively communicate and rapidly solve a variety of problems. The culture of the workplace was nothing spectacular as this job had a high turnover rate due to shift work and entry level pay. I did not mind the job as it did not restrict you to a desk for 8 hours, however, after 3 years of employment with Sears there was no opportunity for advancement within the company and upper management did not care about the opinions of the workers.
not restricted to a desk, not one dimensional
becomes repetitive and boring, no opportunities for advancement
