WATCH: Anonymous Portland Target Employee Shares Horrors of Dangerous Working Conditions, Surging Crime

FOX12 Oregon did a report on the crime at the big fox retailers in the area. Time after time they tried to get managers and employees to discuss the working conditions in the area at department stores.

Finally, FOX12 found a woman, who wants to remain anonymous, who talked about the dangerous working conditions she goes through.

“We will have people who will fill up backpacks, suitcases, wagons, and just walk out the door,” the employee said. “Some guests will do a smash and grab. They take a hammer, or sledgehammer of some sort and smash the glass doors that are protecting the electronics and grab what they can and walk out.”

“I know if we touch a cart that someone’s walking out with, we are automatically on final warning and so next time we do it, we lose our job,” she said. “No matter what, Target is there to protect us and they don’t want anything to happen to us.”

The woman told FOX 12 she understands Target’s safety policy, but she says it gives thieves the power of feeling invincible.

“It’s frustrating,” the employee said. “As a whole, I’ve talked to a lot of people, especially in my department, about how frustrating it is -- how upsetting it is -- we are working so hard to make everyone’s experience there enjoyable and then we have people walk out and we have guests who are shocked that we can’t do anything.”

FOX12 reached out to Target for comment on the story and received the following statement:

“Safety is Target’s highest priority, and in response to elevated incidents of theft in the Portland area, we’ve taken a number of steps to ensure the safety of our team and guests. This includes hiring more security team members, installing more security cameras and using a third party to provide additional security in select stores. We invest time and resources in our store leaders and security team members so they can protect themselves and de-escalate potential safety issues. We also work directly with law enforcement on an ongoing basis to address organized retail crime.”
