The People
No matter how great the benefits, nothing can surpass great coworkers. We have experienced people who’ve been here over 30 years to new employees with exciting and fresh ideas as well as the latest technology skills. A very creative, talented, and caring group, we always look out for each other, the community, and the environment.

The Product
Our products keep companies, residents and our families safe, and make life more convenient with smart products to answer your door, adjust your thermostat, alarm your home, turn lights on and off with, all with your smartphone. With a great employee purchase program, we all have the opportunity to enjoy these great products in our homes, which include personal safety products for the successful aging of parents and grandparents.

The Perks
Carlsbad has the perfect climate (last February we had 90 degree days) and is located just 10 minutes to the beach from the office, and 1.5 hours from Mexico, Big Bear Ski Resorts, Disneyland, and Universal Studios. Go surfing in the morning, skiing in the afternoon, and come back for a moonlight walk by the ocean. Health care is excellent, vacation time is generous, and with the Education Reimbursement Program, you can continue learning and improving your skills! We also have several paid holiday days a year, with fun employee events.

Minutes from the beach and close to downtown San Diego, our SoCal office is the place to be. With unbeatable year round weather and a beach-town feel, you’ll love working in our Carlsbad office.
Breathtaking mountain views and weather that lets you golf and ski on the same day are only part of what makes this place unique. Our Utah office is close to downtown Salt Lake City, one of the top 18 places to live in the nation. Not to mention year-round outdoor activities and gorgeous National Parks

As a facilities and security manager I have acquired a broad range of experience and skills over the years at some of the most prominent companies in San Diego. These experiences prepared me with the knowledge and competence I would need for my role here at Nortek. While endeavoring to take facilities and security operations to a level in line, if not surpassing, current operations standards has not been an easy task, having the fantastic support from senior management has certainly impacted my projects positively.

Being able to utilize Nortek’s superior security products in our own work environment has enabled our employees to experience first-hand what these systems are capable of, as well as give our engineering team the freedom to try new ideas in a real-time environment.

Accepting a position at Nortek has proven to be the best career choice I have made.

I love my job at Nortek Security & Control because every day is different. I am presented with new challenges and situations. I love what I do and do what I love. The work I do every day makes a difference in the world…making our world more secure. I know when I go home that I truly did something meaningful and important.

I have a great manager that allows me the freedom to do my job without being micro-managed. I am provided multiple learning opportunities every day.

Celebrating over 4 years at Nortek.

Medical Plan Options
We offer three choices for medical plans – two through UnitedHealthCare (UHC) based on its Choice Plus Network, as well as an HMO through Kaiser Permanente for California-based employees. Coverage for prescription drugs is available in all three plans.1. Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA) PlanThe HRA plan has lower deductibles and out-of-pocket maximums; fixed copays for prescription drugs, office visits, ER and urgent care, and higher monthly premiums. This plan includes a Telemedicine Benefit.2. Health Savings Account (HSA) Plan

The HSA plan has higher deductibles and out-of-pocket maximums and significant tax advantages. There are no copays, but there is a 20% coinsurance for prescription drugs, office visits, ER and urgent care. Monthly premiums are lower than the HRA. This plan includes a Telemedicine Benefit that is subject to deductible and coinsurance.Healthy LifestylesOur UHC plans recognize and reward healthy lifestyles. In-network preventive care is covered at 100 percent, and you can earn company-paid dollars toward your benefit coverage by participating in our Vitality Wellness Program.

3. HMO Option

California-based employees have a third plan option called the Kaiser HMO. In this plan, you must designate a primary care physician and you will only receive benefits and coverage when you obtain care through a Kaiser Permanente physician or facility. This plan does not include a Telemedicine Benefit.

+ Flexible Spending Account

If you are an HRA or HMO participant, you can contribute pre-tax dollars into a Healthcare Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to use toward medical expenses. All employees who work a minimum 30 hours a week are eligible to participate in our Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account.

We offer a fast-paced, innovative work environment with outstanding benefits, all of which you are eligible for on your first day of employment if you are working 30 or more hours per week. Download our current recruitment materials.
