New Employee Orientation (NEO) is your information gateway into discovering more about Snohomish County.


NEO is held 2 times per month on a Wednesday during the morning. Your department will register you for NEO and a calendar invite along with other communication containing details about New Employee Orientation will be sent to your County email.


NEO is currently being conducted in a TEAM Environment and once your Department registers you for New Employee Orientation, you will receive a TEAMS calendar invite with the hyperlink for the Orientation in that calendar invite.


You may park in the County Parking Garage, which is located on Oakes Avenue between Wall Street and Pacific Avenue. There are also several surface lots nearby. Visit the Parking Garage webpage to learn more.

Identification Badge

All employees of Snohomish County must wear and display their identification badge. Your department will take your photograph and email it to Keyless Entry.  A badge will be created for you and you should receive it within the first week of employment.

  • You will also receive a key-less entry access card, which will allow you to enter certain County facilities.
  • If you choose to pay for monthly parking in the County Parking Garage, the access card will also serve as your garage access card.
