Broken promises

Ever wonder why their alway hiring, definitely something to think about before leaving your current job to give them a try. High turnover of employees, when you start they make lots of promises but don’t always follow through. There are way better options to get your start in firefighting. If it seems too good to be true it usually is

Pros

You get to call yourself a fire fighter

Cons

You’ll never be able to use them as a reference or put on a resume

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
