Military Spotlights

Before working at Rapid Response, I was with a temp agency. Rapid Response was the first company that I interviewed with, and from that initial meeting I knew the culture and structure was the right fit. The monthly VERG meetings, military service leave, and military spousal leave are some of the best resources Rapid Response offers its Military and Veteran employees. I really enjoy the fact that with hard work, advancement is possible.

Rapid Response’s mission to protect life and property was appealing as a USAF Security Forces Veteran. My mission while serving was to keep people safe and protect government assets from enemies foreign and domestic. While the constant deployments took a toll on me, the passion to make a difference never changed.

The best resources that Rapid Response offers are the flexibility and investment in its people. I continued to serve in the National Guard when I came off active duty. Management worked with me on scheduling to give me the time off I needed when duty called and ensured me that my position was still here for me when I returned.

Rapid Response is a company that serves the community in ways that protect and prevent loss of life and property. When I found out that the company monitors alarm systems throughout the nation and beyond our borders, it solidified my commitment to serving the nation even more. I really enjoy the structured environment and knowing exactly what to do every day – there’s never a dull moment.

Additionally, the teamwork environment was very appealing to me. Everyone wants to see you succeed and do well – if you’re struggling with something, the supervisors, your peers, and the training team are always available to ensure you get guidance. Along with the excellent support system fostered here at Rapid Response, the skills I acquired in the military – stress management and multitasking – have helped me become successful in my role. There is always something new to learn every day. I am extremely appreciative of having the opportunity to work here.

What interested me about Rapid Response was the job stability, the differential pay for different shifts, and the challenge that alarm monitoring presents – it’s a job that keeps you on your toes. The time I spent in the Navy laid the foundation for a good work ethic, and often while serving things completely out of your control will happen. You must be ready for the unexpected.
