    • I hope so, but once in a while I notice that something was stolen especially jewelry items. I feel so uncomfortable when I’m checking out makeup because the cameras are directly on you.

    • Surveilance cameras do no good if nobody is paying attention to the monitors.

    • I think everyone is being watched pretty much anywhere you go in public.

    • Tulip - you‘re so right some security guards are chatting with their coworkers instead of monitoring.

      Diane - you‘re right wherever we go someone is watching you and sometimes the focus is on the good people that the bad gets away with it.

    • I work where we have cameras and here are what they ARE good for: catching employees not doing what they are supposed to be doing. And only if I sit and review thru the hours of tape. Also when I file a police report for theft I can usually back it up with copy of the video.
      Very rarely do we ever sit and watch those cameras for extended periods of time. And if we are watching its because someone on the floor has made a comment thru their walkie to watch.

      And last night we watched either a ghost rat ( it was blurry and almost transparent) run thru one screen shot or maybe it was a bug running across the camera lens. So the cameras are good for freaking out the employees too tongue out

    • Hi Vikki! Thanks for your comment.  

      What are some signs that a store worker looks for in a customer to have them monitored?  Once when I was at Target I remembered a worker asked me if I was done shopping and I noticed from the corner of my eye that she was on her walkie talkie. I know they‘re doing their job, but I felt so violated.

    • Some things are when the shopper is watching the employees while shopping, dressing in layers when it’s not appropriate, large open handbags, shopping fast and moving quickly amount the expensive items, bringing other shopping bags into store.  

      Stuff like that.....

    • They are good for catching employees not doing their job.  We had an incident a couple weeks ago where a guy got fired for his never ending morning smoke break (and a few other issues).  

      He knew that every move we make is on camera since we deal with millions of $$ in merchandise daily.  When confronted about his 2 hr smoke break, he denied it and kept denying it until they replayed the video for him.  Sheesh.  How dumb can one guy be?

    • I agree with you on that we all are being watch but this was the most cazys thing I had every heard were I lived before they said at a meeting let’s put up cameras so the people will think they are being watched and will fill safe I felt it was wrong to tell them that when there was crimes being done there.And when I go to a store it is funny how they will watch the ones buying but the ones stealing is walking right out the door sad
