    Approves of CEO

    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.

    Anonymous Employee in Shoreline, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Northwest Security Services (Shoreline, WA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Went to fill out application was interviewed on the spot and walked out with job!!! The hr woman was friendly and funny. There was a short test very easy and you do have to attend training and pass a drug test.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They do offer raises after your probation is up. But with it almost always available you won't be hurting for money with this company.
