Anyone who has worked in retail at least once in their lifetime knows the struggles of this job. Angry customers, paltry wages, shoplifters – all these bonuses come with it. Working with a lot of people in general can bring up challenges that you haven’t even thought of before. One guy, who was working as a member of an assets protection team in one of the largest department store retailers, shared his stories of what is was like to deal with audacious shoplifters.

“Since today is five years since I resigned from Target Assets Protection (Loss Prevention/Security) I thought I would share a few funny or interesting stories”
