Most of them are in constant chaos because they understaff and don't know what they're doing. You can check this for yourself too by putting a product in one part of the store in another behind others, see how long it takes them to find it and put it in its right spot.

your story is similar to mine with regard to work. For me, I started lifting after at the store I was working at we had some lifters stealing things in a very brazen way and threatening employees...the cops and managers tried blaming me simply because I look different (am goth and androgynous) even though I had no involvement and always played by the books. So I said fuck them and the world, they pay too low as well, and started lifting from there.

But I don't see how you can make reliable money just from lifting alone. Are you working part time or self employed as well Smine?

just go in walgreens and add the fucking packs to a bag and walk out. there are no tags and they won't go off. at least, on most of them. tags are put randomly on items in stores but you ought to be fine

I basically do it to reduce cost of living...only on rare occasions do I lift solely for pleasure (as in taking things like games etc).

I tend to rotate through the stores I lift at on a regular basis, I need to start going to ones out of the area. For example, with groceries I shop every 2 weeks. One time will be lifting at one store, on the next store two weeks later will be different one lifting at, on one after that I won't lift, then 2 more weeks after that go to new one. So the ones I lift from I tend to only be lifting from them with 2-3 months in between actually showing up there.

I've lifted a lot of stuff there before and it is EASY (although I've only tried with small things). Walk around for about 5 minutes in the store and pretend to be looking at things. Then take what you want and walk behind where they have the cash register at the front, there is a glass container usually behind it. duck below and put what you want in a shopping bag you have with you and walk out. I've done this a bunch of times with employee literally right there and they don't notice. You can easily take a ton of hair dyes that way.

Bring an IPad /tablet with you and keep the palette behind that. Move into another part of the store and put hide it in something, staging to pick it up later. Come back a week or two later to get it

Staging is also good to gauge how attentive the store is to their stock; if you put something you want close to the door, and then come back a week later and it's STILL there then you can rest assured they aren't taking care of their stock well nor are they watching for lifters well.

I see like one person there monitoring it, but are they looking on cameras as well? It is it at all times or just certain time periods? And as I said earlier....what's the point of monitoring it in depth? Why not just hire actual cashiers if they are hiring LP to monitor it a ton?

I wonder though, how much does LP actually monitor self checkout at walmart and other stores? Wouldn't paying LP to monitor that shit defeat the purpose of saving money by cutting down on employees in the first place with these machines?
