    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Rovers Security full-time (More than a year)


    When I came on board there was instant welcoming! I was first impressed with the management team the President, Jacob Turner, put together. They were friendly and really knew their stuff. I learned a lot in a short amount of time simply by working hard and silently observing. I went from an Event Staff person to a Security Officer with the help of Rovers Security. I accepted every shift offered, never complained (some of those long days of standing in the beginning were tough, but I pushed through). The events were really fun to work and the corporate sites were extremely varied so I never got board. I feel very cared about as a person at Rovers. I really matter to them!


    Take absolutely every shift you can get and in no time you will be working 40 + hours a week. During Event Season, there's lots of OT which can be a bit much, but the money is GREAT!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the little things you do for us! It means the world. Most managers and supervisors are very fair, smart and kind. Keep them!

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Rovers Security (Portland, OR) in March 2012.


    I submitted a resume to the HR Manager and less than a day later, I received a call to schedule an interview. He was very accommodating and let me pick the time that worked best for me. When I arrived for the interview, I was greeted warmly by the HR Manager, offered coffee (which I happily accepted) and proceeded to fill out an application.

    After completing the application, I interviewed with the HR Manager and it was nothing like I thought it would be. He was very upbeat, engaging and warm, and seemed to genuinely care about what I had to say. I was very impressed to say the least.

    They informed me that they would need to run a background check as a condition of employment. Once they received the background report on me (which was very quick because they have their own in-house screening company), they offered me a position.
