Do You Think My Employer Would Frown Upon Me Doing This?

I work for a large retailer, recently i got the idea to start buying up a bunch of our clearance items using my employee discount to sell online and make a modest profit. I’m not doing anything against policy, all items i buy directly off the sales floor while off the clock. I’m just curious if anyone were to find out, would the company not like it?

    I’m sure your employer will get all kinds of warm fuzzies that you are using your employee discount to purchase already discounted items so you can turn around and sell them for a profit.

    simply = yes . policy or not.
    u need an other layer of
    deniablity.

    If I were your employer, I wouldn’t mind, but I can’t speak for your employer. Why don’t you ask your manager?

    Well, you are doing it openly and off the clock. I assume that you are selling them at the same price or more than they would have paid at the store. If there is no policy against it, it must be ok. However, you seem to feel uncomfortable, so why not ask? That way you could stop if they do object and not have to worry.

    If you want to purchase off the floor without your employee discount, go for it.
    But almost all retails have policies against using the employee discount for anything but “personal purchases”. Unless you planned to hold the items for 3-5 and then sell, this is certainly not personal purchases.
