Initial secures have been ruled by the WA courts to be illegal trespass. I wouldn't waste any more time.

They are obviously just one more paper contractor

with a $20 website, farming out work to fools who don't know any better.

Why would you work for a company out of MI when you live in WA state? Just sign up with their clients like they did.

A few of the contractors that work with us also work with Initial. I have heard good things about them. From what I have heard, they are a regional, never have had issues with payments, contractor friendly, and pay weekly. Hope this helps.

You pay them 40% so they can make you do that at night when you should be relaxing.

Thumbs down Worked for Initial Secure

We worked for initial Secure Services. They did have work. Literally every job costs us money. Because the money is so bad, I'm guessing they are 4th down the line. They are extremely picky, pushy, and a pain in the ass to get in the phone. They approve NOTHING while your in the field. They expect you to run your butt off and not compensate you. They will stall processing. Our company pulls work from other companies as well with no issues. If you want to be broke, work for them.

I'm with them now and they are one of the better Regional's I have worked for. they are very friendly and helpful. They work with you on any issues you may have and pay better than Safe Guard.

Yes, they take a % but then I have 0 paperwork when I get home. They use PPW for the picture taking and bidding.

I did have an issue with a line item they didn't pay me for, but instead of directing me towards the accts dept. my Rep managed it for me and I had it 4 days later.

Yesterday they asked me to go to a home out of my area and paid me 3 times more than the job was for to get it done. I have no complaints so far... going on 4 months now.
