What agency officials are saying about PST...
"Our Agency was thoroughly pleased with the excellent level of service provided by PST Investigations and our assigned investigator, Director of Investigations Greg Wilson.
Their investigation process met our Agency’s tight timeline. They were readily available; their end product was precise, well-organized and the turnaround time was superb.
Should our agency have a future need for an outside investigation, we will absolutely contact PST Investigations."
"[The PST] staff are incredibly customer service oriented and are extremely proactive regarding the services they provide. They are professional, expedient, responsive and are experts in their field. I have the utmost confidence in all of the services they provide.
The background investigators they employ are very personable, experienced, professional, knowledgeable, and thorough in their investigations. They keep us apprised of any abnormalities or areas of concern as the investigation progresses and are very willing to do additional research or follow-up if we determine we need more information.
I never have to question the integrity or credibility of Public Safety Testing, and we have had some unique situations that could have easily provided opportunities for such issues. PST has never disappointed in regard to transparency, while providing us the highest level of confidentiality. They are respectful to our candidates and do not shy away from asking difficult questions. They consistently provide us objective, verified and well documented information in an extremely consistent format that enables us to make the best decisions possible."
"As an employment attorney, I have a frequent need for investigators when my clients receive complaints of employee misconduct.
In the past year I have relied heavily on PST because its team of retired law enforcement officers has extensive experience in conducting interviews and drafting investigation reports. As a result, my clients have received high quality investigations that were completed in a timely manner and at a reasonable cost. I enthusiastically recommend PST and its investigations team."
TESTING IN WASHINGTON STATE CANCELED THROUGH MAY 31, 2020
All pre-employment tests in Washington State have been canceled until May 31, 2020 unless government restrictions are eased. With recent updates, facility closures, and government guidelines, this step is necessary and could be modified at any time. The health and safety of our customers, our staff, and their families is of the highest priority.
We will continue to evaluate developments and make changes to this policy as necessary. When we do resume testing, there will be plenty of events for everyone to test. We are in regular communication with our public safety agency partners, assessing alternatives to the traditional testing model and our testing policies. Any future updates will be posted on the PST website and our Facebook page.
If you have tested with PST in the past 12 months, there may be additional positions you are now eligible to add. Several departments have temporarily changed their testing policies due to the suspension in testing that COVID-19 has caused. Please login to your PST account and navigate to the ‘New Positions’ page to see what departments you can add! We will regularly update that page in your account as departments send updates.
FUTURE TEST REGISTRATION
We know that there will be testing in the future - we just don’t know when! We want you to be prepared for when testing begins again so we have created test events on our calendar that you can register for that will place you in a queue to be first notified. These tests are not “real” test events, they are essentially a holding area. You will be able to “reschedule” out of that event to any other event date/location at no cost. Registering now will also give you time to work on your Personal History Statement (PHS) so that your data will be ready and up-to-date to send to your departments once testing resumes.
To sign up for this placeholder event, select the June 15, 2020 test date in your category (police, fire, 911 dispatch, corrections, etc.).
