We recently hired a new employee whom I'll call Idiot. He's trained up as a cashier, and finally put on register last Monday [4/29].
We have cameras in the ceiling directly over every register. They can see everything. It's helped us in the past when customers have complained. All our employees know this: it's part of training.
For five straight days, Idiot's register comes up exactly $40 short. Management reviews the tapes. Twice a day, when a customer paid with a $20 bill, Idiot would slip the bill into his pants pocket instead of the register before giving the customer their change.
Got a call today [Sunday 5/5] from my managers asking if I could pick up a few extra shifts over the next few weeks. Idiot has been fired for stealing $200 in his first [and last] week on the register.
May all your coworkers be honest...
