Sales goals vs. theft

This has been covered before but I have to vent anyway. Last week almost everyone in our store come up short in their goals be a bundle, or a total access signup or whatever. So this week of course our DM is making threatening calls about writing up our SM, and whatever else came to his mind. Can someone explain to me how my not selling 3 more candy bundles is gonna save BB, especially considering I only found $140 worth of slashed open stolen movies last night. I have a great idea instead of worrying about how much candy I sell, let's stop the theft in stores. I could spend $50 and put a couple of cameras in our blind spots and at least maybe identify the thieves and maybe make them think twice if they know we have a camera there.

We used to physically "recover" product from people attempting to steal from us at my store. After about 3 or 4 people got their ass beat, we turned a high shrink store into a very low shrink store ;D

I'm so glad I don't have to empty my pockets like a dark skinned foreigner in JFK anymore. Know what happens If I go home with staplers and shit? I don't have my fucking stapler. O.O And have to borrow one for a month or two until the next supply order. Some employees actually realize you're shooting yourself in the foot by stealing! Shocker for the Blockbuster!

Quite true! Why else would 3 of the 4 cameras in our store focus exclusively on employees?

Obviously, we are the problem.
Sheesh. Blaming actual thieves for theft... for shame.

You are the only thing they can control, clearly they cant/ dont know how to control money. Thier actions speak louder than words regarding the money issue. Your DM feels insignificant, therefore he/she takes it out on you.

The goals are a ridiculous concept.

I fully understand the importance of making a profit to Blockbuster, but it seems like Blockbuster doesn't understand the importance of keeping customers rather than annoying them into never coming back.
