    I have been working at Northwest Security Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great management, good benefits, they help pay for school if you've been here long enough, lots of OT for people that like the extra time and money, opportunities to get higher pay if you complete their training, easy and fulfilling work for decent pay, a lot of management started off as guards themselves and know where we're coming from.

    Cons

    They do not pay for parking in Seattle, but you can find places and I've known people that park in park & ride's and take the Link Light Rail In.
