By November 13, 2013

If you're like a lot of folks, you could probably use a few extra bucks this holiday season. Fortunately, many big-box retailers and mall boutiques hire extra help for the anticipated larger crowds. With more people in stores comes the potential for more theft, which is why one of the biggest needs for retailers during the holidays is help in loss prevention.

Reducing Theft

Loss prevention specialists help to ensure that theft, by both customers and employees, is reduced as much as possible. They work as private security, either in or out of uniform, and keep an eye on everyone in the store to mitigate loss.

Extra Income, Excellent Experience

Working as a loss prevention specialist can be a great way to earn extra cash for Christmas, and a great way to get your foot in the door to an even bigger and better career in criminology or criminal justice.
