First, condolences to all of you who have lost your jobs at BN after that bullshit last month.

I am still working as a cashier at a store in the Northeast.

I wanted to ask whether there is any "secret" protocol for managers when employees buy items?

There is one manager who has told me in the past I'm considered a "model employee" and expresses his gratitude that I'm good at selling memberships. But when no one else is around he is cold as shit.

Whenever I buy a book after my shift is over and he is working, he is ALWAYS hovering near the register I'm at before returning to the other side of the counter to stand behind the cashier while the transaction is going through.

I KNOW he knows I'm not stupid/lacking in character/dishonest to steal or try something underhanded. So what gives?

(For the record, I'm not completely white.)

I am currently a manager at a store in the midwest. The only reason I'd do something like that was if i suspected the cashier was using their own employee number for you. But we have a program where we can look that stuff up on the managers computer. If you are at all comfortable with it, I'd just straight up ask what he's looking for. If not, ask another manager about it or if you truly think he's profiling you, go straight to the dm. If he is, that could be considered harassment.

Or store manager is similar but she's just suspicious of everything. It's a personality thing more than anything and not really meant as an insult even if it sort of is. She's followed my friends and family through the store before and hovered at the register's when they're checking out to see if I'd given them my employee number. I just know that's how she is, roll my eyes and move on. I know I'm not doing anything wrong so i just ignore it.
