Loss Prevention Analyst

Publix Associate

It was Colonel Mustard, with the candlestick, in the billiard room! Kind of like solving a mystery game, Loss Prevention Analysts examine a wide range of data to essentially follow clues and identify various kinds of theft crimes against Publix. They identify trends on sales, money services transactions, shrink, gross profit, inventory, point of sale transactions and pharmacy drug movement in order to thwart theft.

Loss Prevention Analysts monitor countermeasures such as Shrink Management efforts, Shrink and Safety Awareness efforts, Uniformed Security expense, and Retail Loss Prevention Officer activity to measure the effectiveness of each one. Analysts are also responsible for designing, running and distributing scheduled and ad-hoc reports.
