Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A great Station to get experience with municipal, industrial, and wildland experience. Plenty of room for advancement and learning with the multitude of courses they offer. This job is a good way to get your foot in the door for the fire service and gain experience.

Pros

Lots of experience

Cons

Pay

Company that needs work

No regard for covid during 2020 6 beds per room in fire hall at ab beach industrial equipment not up to par and over all a pretty bad environment to even call a work place they have a huge turn over in personnel and anyone how stays develops a god complex and honestly believes they are God's gift to man

Competitive Salary and Great Team Enviornment

I have worked at NWFR for many years and believe that it is a great place to work. The team is very motivated and are always being given opportunities to improve skills and acquire new levels of training. Entry level positions do not offer great compensation but members are offered salaries after getting experience and meeting training requirements. I receive a competitive salary and benefits and am very satisfied with my job.

Pros

Competitive salary, saving lives, free training

Cons

Low starting wage, a few rig-pigs flow through and make the environment unpleasant from time to time

Garbage

They don’t pay you or their accounts if you want to get home you better have gas money management is a joke equipment is a joke, they treat you like a slave and then make every excuse to not pay. Entire company is run by a family that doesn’t know anything about this job
