I don’t know if you’ve ever noticed the numbers on the wall at Best Buy. They are black on yellow and typically are located by checkout. These numbers are statistics tracking things like theft or inventory discrepancies, Sports Illustrated subscriptions, and credit card applications. This is a really good article on it. There is a link in the article that ties to a website where workers from Best Buy talk about theft issues. Even though the employees are not paid bonuses on sales as they will repeatedly tell you, they are paid bonuses on other metrics.
