Loss Prevention Associate Reviews

What is it like working as a Loss Prevention Associate?

Loss Prevention Associate in Virginia Beach:
"I had to formulate my own system."
Pros: Extremely Flexible Schedule. Bonuses. Semiannual Pay Raises based on performance. Quiet work environment. Make my own policies to manage sources of profit loss. I am trusted to manage all necessary tasks on my own.
Cons: Some projects have deadlines that require that I stick to a precise schedule. Since the work I do does not need to be finished immediately, it is seen as less important. As a result, I am often pulled away from my work to complete other tasks.
