jw: I wish Loss prevention would shake me down going out the store so I could file a lawsuit.
Guest: Why do some LPO act like real cops?
Guest: How much does a LPO make a year on average?
Guest: I only asked how much a LPO makes a year because there was one guy in store 10 who thought he was big shit because he didn't go to school and had twin kids.
notparistexas: Per internal? What's an internal?
asdf: How long does an internal investigation last before a bust happens? what is the process of an internal investigation?
frysemployee: This isn't a way out of getting arrested. He is telling people who DO NOT understand the fundamental rights we are given as Americans. If you really did steal then they have proof and doing the things Rick is telling you to do would not effect that. If you are not innocent they will bring charges and get the police involved. Ricks information just prevents you from self incrimination.
nfl: Can you describe some of the things that LP can do to research your movements and actions through POS? Do you mean like when and where you log in at, things you pull up, ect.?
Guest: From another LPO that I use to know, he has said that LP has voice recorders in some places. Where would those places be?
Guest: I dont know what state yall are in but in texas alot of loss prevention officers are real police officers too.
Rick: jw: I wish Loss prevention would shake me down going out the store so I could file a lawsuit. Im sure you would, unfortunetly the "Courtesy Associates" that are placed at the entrance and exit door know that if a customer refuses to show there reciept that theres nothing they can do but call it in on the radio to the LPO's who in turn will get a camera face shot of you in case you make a habbit of this.

Really? I make a habit of this, literally every single time. They still cant do anything, but they might have some shots worthy of my facebook profile.
Guest: Wow I never knew anything about this! A friend I work with just got in trouble for stealing and she signed the confession paper and everything and now she has to pay like $500. But now she's looking for another job and she's scared it will show up in her records.. Will they put that in your employment history records or somewhere that a future job can see?? And are you suggesting that she shouldn't have said anything?? Would it have ended up going to court and through the legal system if they had proof she really was stealing??
Guest: But if they said that there would be no court procedures if she paid it off will they still take her to court?
Guest: Got to see a couple of LPO's in action today as I approached the entrance, a stocky person wearing a football jersey walked out of the building briskly and two LPO's quickly caught up to him on each side. Then a Fry's employee in white got in front of the suspect's face and right in the middle of the parking lot there was a struggle and the suspect was taken down. Out came the cuffs and I thought they were about to hogtie him with the way they were bending this legs back in an attempt to subdue him. But they just cuffed him and escorted him through the entrance towards the left, where there was door near the returns area. One of the LPO's had a badge that hung from his neck like a necklace, I'm not sure if that's normal but I haven't seen anything like that before. After some customers put away their phone cams, collectively we all slowly walked past the podium where we could hear a rather enthusiastic "Welcome to Fry's!" voice that was an eerie soundtrack to what seemed to be an eventful morning.
Guest: Wish I had seen this earlier. If theres an investigation, and lp finds out that managers are not following procedures, and aware of price reductions (encouraging it) and they have proof, will they ever investigate the managers, or are they strictly trying to get rid of the peons, that make little money, worked their ass off for years, and followed direction based on what they were instructed to do (no matter how dumb it seemed at the time) Is it better to get out when they are telling you to just lie if asked why your not going to be at work for a couple days, or just sit and wait it out, and hope you get some kind of vindication. Thanks.
Guest: I just have a quick question in some retail store theres loads of cameras, but in an LPO's office there is a computer and a tv screen divided into 12 or 9 sections not all the cameras are on the screens.... so where else can they be filming ie, zellers / wal mart ....
Guest: Rick, I was the guest that mentioned wishing I had seen this earlier, I was called into lp office, not voluntary. I was intimidated, told to write down why stuff was rung up reduced. Had to sign a confidentiality paper, told they were doing an investigation, I wasn't fired, but they had me go back get my purse and leave and wait to hear back. They told me to lie if anyone asked and say I was out on family matters. Same thing with another employee I later found out, still not sure if the managers are going thru this also, been there 2 years, always did a great job, and never missed work, so of course even my manager called me to find out what was happening and I told her I couldn't really tell her anything. After sitting in limbo for a couple days, I thought maybe its better to just quit, so I gave a short notice using the reason lp told me (family illness)and never heard anything back. I did get my last pay-check thru direct deposit, so thats good, but I hate that I felt I had to leave. I didn't want my name dragged thru anything illegal or fraud related. When the managers and store manager knew about the markdowns all along. I gave lp proof from an old reciept that I wasn't the only one ringing up reduced items, and that the other dept been doing it since as far back as oct 2009. So I backed up what I told them originally when asked. Anyway, thats it, I still liked my job and wonder if I did the wrong thing.
