Sandy: My name is Sandy Lynch. I am a sergeant out at EGT and I have been with Northwest Enforcement since Sean and Chad took over. I was with Columbia Security for three years, so all together, I’ve been with the company for five years now.
Interviewer: How did you get into security?
Sandy: Actually, it was a fluke. I had lost my job bartending. I knew Doug and Dolly when they owned Columbia Security. At the time when I met, when I got the job, my husband was looking for work. I gave him the slip and told him to go over. It was supposed to be just weekends and holidays. Well, he wanted something more, so I said I’m gonna go try it. So I came and I filled out an application. Never done security in my life, so it’s a whole new experience.
Interviewer: What would you say attracts you to Northwest Enforcement as a company?
Sandy: The fact that they want to get to know the employees. They just don’t want us, they just don’t know us by our name. They want to get to know who we are, what our beliefs are, what our feelings are, and any way that we can help improve the company.
Interviewer: Let’s talk a little bit about your personal life. So what are some things that you like to do in your spare time?
Sandy: I have been collecting unicorns for 35 years. Wow, I have over 4,000 of them. This is what a unicorn looks like. The Daily News about 30 years ago, our notebook 25 years ago, did an article on my collection. They came into my house and took pictures.
Interviewer: Wow, that is awesome. What was that like when they did that?
Sandy: I couldn’t believe it. I was amazed, and somebody had called and told them that I collected. So they got a hold of me and said, “Can we come in and take an interview on an avid collector?” And I’m like, “Yeah, why not?”
Interviewer: How would you describe Northwest Enforcement in one or two words?
Sandy: Enterprising. They’re looking to the future. They’re trying to adjust to the future and what is coming up, but they’re also looking out for their employees, they’re not just leaving them on the sidelines. They want to bring them with the company.
Interviewer: Perfect. Well, thank you so much.
