Loss Prevention Hiring: Ramping Up?

Several weeks ago we noted that hiring at the field loss prevention level seems to be ramping up and it looks like this trend is continuing.  Disney, Express, A&F, Dollar General and many others are looking for district, regional, and senior regional loss prevention managers and we are also seeing some postings in Mexico and Canada.  We would expect there to be a flurry of activity between now and the beginning of November when most retailers want to have everyone in place to focus on the holiday season.

Is the Job Market for LP Starting to “Heat Up”?

In the past few weeks, there are some signs the job market is starting to heat up a bit – at least at the field LP level.  Regional Loss Prevention Manager jobs at Dollar General, Charming Shoppes, Radio Shack, CVS, Wet Seal, Sears, Lowes, and others are being posted on LPjobs.com and Linkedin.  Add some District Loss Prevention Manager jobs, Distribution Center Loss Prevention jobs, and opportunities for analysts and ORC investigators and it seems like things might be picking up in our industry.
