In Quarter 4 of 2016, the Daily posted 39 featured jobs:

● 2 VP positions
● 18 Director positions
● 1 Senior Director level position
● 6 Senior Manager/Corporate Manager positions

Throughout 2017, the Daily posted various job titles including Safety and Security, Operations, Investigations, Program Manager, Cyber Security and Information Security.

While the Daily increased in the number of featured and internet jobs posted in Quarter 4, throughout the whole year, the Daily posted less internet jobs this year (4,838) than in 2016 (4,944).

Due to the number of store closures seen in 2017, as many as 6,800 according to Patch, job cuts, and especially loss prevention/asset protection, ORC and store detective position cuts and reorganizations at stores like CVS and Walgreens, Ascena, Regis Salons, Office Depot, Forever 21 and BLD Brands/Serazen, Sears, and Petco, the amount of jobs posted on retail websites for LP/AP/Security positions decreased.

While the beginning of 2018 has seen more job cuts already, it will be interesting to see how the retail industry, and consequently LP/AP job postings, plays out with ecommerce becoming a bigger influence on brick and mortar stores and their employees.
