I worked at Northwest Security Services full-time
NWSS is a really great place to work! The staff is friendly and dedicated to it's employee's success. The work is hard, but it is rewarding. I've seen other companies treat their security officers with disdain - NWSS really cares about it's officers. While there is a lot to learn up front, the work can become predictable, which makes the work enjoyable, especially when you're going to school. It's a great workout! Climbing stairs, unlocking/locking doors, assisting people; it's definitely a job of serving people. Also, it's very nice to get overtime, to help pay the bills. NWSS has that available in my experience.
I don't think their are really any cons of the job; though you can get pretty tired/bored. I got through this by counting ceiling tiles and checking every door very well, making a game out of it. It this busy world, sometimes the silence is golden. It's always refreshing to meet people though, and help them!
