Loss Prevention Officer (Former Employee) – Piccadilly Circus Station – 13 April 2016
The management only seemed to care about getting short term profits, not long term. This meat that there were a lot of cut backs on things that didn't benefit staff. People were fired for no good reason. They tried to make people work unreasonable hours.
Fellow staff were great. Customers were great.Pay was good
Loss Prevention Officer (Former Employee) – Birkenhead, ENG – 20 May 2015
Very fun place to work as the staff are all like minded. The hours were long with many weeks being over 50 hours of work. The great things included listening to any music we had in the store and being able to see the new films and listen to the new C.D's before release.

Loss prevention officer (Former Employee) – ENG – 17 February 2014
Working for HMV Romford as a Loss Prevention Officer between 2007- 2009 was quite exiting in terms of the knowledge and experience I gained working in a Business Risk Department. As a Loss Prevention Officer, I was the point of contact for all Loss Prevention related matters in the shop. Even though loss prevention was quite tasking, I enjoyed the daily routine of completing the store’s stock takes, compliance audits, stock investigations, and supporting stores in the investigation and resolution of cash, till & stock discrepancies. From a previous retail background on London’s major High Streets, loss prevention at HMV was an additional experience, because while on the job, I improved on personal skills such as security awareness, effective time management as well as effective communication at various levels within the business. I organised Health and Safety training for the personnel, an experience which enabled me developed more analytical skills, initiative and a keen interest in developing a career in business management.
security awareness, business management skills and training skills.

Loss Prevention Officer (Former Employee) – Hanley – 10 July 2013
Until the company went into administration, my role was more varied and with a high level of responsibility. My typical day included - stock taking - using CCTV - deterring and arresting criminals, - writing statements and liaising with local authority services following an arrest - investigating loss I learned many skills with regard to security work and loss prevention, and also developed my customer interaction skills. Since being made redundant, I have maintained contact with several of my co-workers, with whom I have developed a good relationship with over my time working with them. The most difficult aspect of my role was ensuring all rules were adhered to, to avoid putting myself or others in a potentially threatening situation - something I took pride. The most enjoyable part of my job was when investigations came to a successful conclusion.
A varied role
Poor job security, ultimately ending with redundancy
