TASER technology protects life, and the use of TASER devices dramatically reduces injury rates for law enforcement officers and suspects.

TASER International was founded in September 1993 and has remained committed to providing solutions which Protect Life, Protect Truth, and Protect Family. From our industry-leading CEWs, to our AXON/EVIDENCE.COM on-officer video and storage system, we are committed to reducing violent confrontation, providing accountability, and preventing danger.

    I have been working at TASER full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is passionate about their job and providing great products to improve relationships between the police and the public. With the size of company we are, every employee has responsibility and makes a difference. Every day is exciting and new. Interacting with our customers (police officers), has given me a new perspective on their jobs. Also time-off is pretty lax which is awesome!

    Cons

    Every company has some issues, but Taser has been working to rectify theirs. Short people in certain positions which causes extra work for others (they are working on hiring good employees to fill these spots). Lower compensation than other tech companies for certain positions, but also cheaper living in AZ than CA.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at TASER in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    The process was fairly relaxed and friendly. The process started with a variety of fit questions, but did not cover the resume in a great level of detail. The process ended with a short set of basic logic questions. The interviewer was enthusiastic and welcoming and made the experience positive overall.
