Industry Leader
Larrek is a leader in the public and private investigations field. Salary and benefits are competitive within the industry and overall Larrek is a good company to work for either as a senior or junior investigator. Like any growing company there are kinks to work out as they go but Larrek does a good job of meeting the changing landscape quickly and efficiently. I would recommend this company to fellow investigators.

The job was Ok.
At Larrek Investigations, I felt a lack of appreciation for my efforts. I felt that my accomplishments were over looked and I started to feel depressed. Never was much support offered and the way files were managed seemed to be disorganized. I sought employment elsewhere. Thank you for reading.

Great place to work as an investigator
Lots of work to go around and always busy. Atmosphere is way better than my previous job and pay is very competitive and fair. Benefits are a great perk also.

Challenging Role & Rewarding Team
Since working at Larrek, I have had the opportunity to continue with my growth within the company. I haven't stayed in the same spot as I started in and I am always learning new skills and tasks. What is asked in a day is trying your best from 9 to 5 and being proud of the work you are completing. There isn't a demand to make you stay after hours or start earlier, however, there is always the opportunity for you to choose to continue working additional hours if they're available. Sometimes the clients have high-pressure deadlines, but we work together as a team to get what needs to be done. Working for insurance companies and law firms, the work we do needs to be of a high quality. If you are going to phone it in or coast along, this will not be the job for you.The staff in the workplace are highly supportive of each other and are open about sharing about their lives. We try to keep connected, even with the separation the past year has had for us. It's difficult moving from an office environment to a home one and we've been doing what we can to keep connected since emails/written messages take away the personal feel. If you need an accommodation or support, management and the leaders will be there for you. Management is always available if you need them, including early mornings, evenings and weekends. In addition, the pension and benefit plans offered are excellent and would highly recommend enrolling.

The Best PI Firm I’ve Worked with
I have worked in government, profit and non-profit organizations in the past. During my past seven years that I moved to PI industry I have worked for three large PI companies downtown before I joined Larrek. Overall, I find Larrek to be a fast-paced and technologically advanced company. The company does not leave its staff behind or alone to fend for themselves. Though you are expected to be a PI practitioner before you apply to the company, there is still plenty of support to learn and grow into the profession with Larrek. It is in Larrek that the President is ready to share his secrets to success with you. I find that I could text the President or Vice President at any time and will receive advice. The administrative staff are friendly and always available to answer questions. The environment and people are very pleasant.In terms of scheduling, I find Larrek Investigations policy to be by the book with flexible working hours. When you get a file, Larrek shares the client requirements with you, so you know what you are getting into. Work/life balance depends on the requirements of a file, if you are not up to the challenge or you can’t travel, all you have to do is text your team leader and return the file, no question asked. I’ve found this very helpful when balancing work with health or family obligations.As for salary and benefits, I find Larrek’s mileage compensation and hourly salary to be among the highest in the market today. The benefits provided include health and dental which I am very happy with.In terms of job security, we all know the PI industry is very seasonal. When I was with other companies, they would let PI’s go with no warning when we entered slow months. I’ve found Larrek to take a much better approach where they will tell you honestly about the situation and advise you on what is in your best interest. They try their best when work is slow, to divide the work available among everyone.
