Corporate America

From 1996 through 2003, I worked for Target Corporation throughout Michigan specifically in Taylor, Dearborn, and Dearborn Heights.  Initially hired for entry-level sales, I quickly rose to the position of Asset Protection Specialist.

Here are just a few of the things that  I accomplished during this time:

  • Investigated fraud (check, credit, and return) building cases on recurring incidents and coordinating with local law enforcement.
  • Primary focus on reducing shrink through detection, observation, apprehension, and prosecution of external shoplifters.
  • Reviewed internal reports identifying over/shorts in register tills and investigating source(s) of loss.
  • Conducted surveillance on internal threats resulting in the apprehension of several dishonest employees and recovering over one-hundred thousand dollars.
  • Design and installation of Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) systems.
