    I worked at Loomis Fargo & Co. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a job not a career. I really don't have anything nice to say about loomis. Unless your black they care about you.

    Cons

    Too far away, No overtime, and they treat you like dirt.

    Advice to Management

    I git you good. Not only did you loose a great employee but you lost alot of contracts too thanks to me. Robins fed credit union was the one that killed you all.

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    Old, ill-maintained equipment, have to supply own sidearm, expected to put life on line for very little pay.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up! You can't get quality people if you treat and pay them like slaves and make them use equipment that belong in a museum.

    I have been working at Loomis Fargo & Co. full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They have branches throughout the US so you can transfer just about anywhere you want as long as the postilion is open. Also strong financials giving company great stability.

    Cons

    WAS a great company to work for. Cared about their people and was a great working environment with many opportunities to move up the ladder. In 2014 a new CEO/President took the helm for the US division. This is a company doing over 500 billion and profits of 500 million a year. The new CEO is ruthless monster with an ego the size of Texas. His rule has completely changed this company to the point that every employee is scared to death about whether they will have a job tomorrow. His personality regarding the company employees is driven by his lack of caring about the Loomis people. All he cares about is cutting cost no matter who it hurts and what it takes. This is all to make himself more money and make himself look better then the previous CEO. He is single handily destroying what was a great company. Be concerned if you apply, here today gone tomorrow with no reason other then to cut cost.

    Pros

    Don't trust CMS Manager , High Turnover.

    Cons

    CMS Manager will lie to your face.

    Advice to Management

    Pittsburgh Pa, CMS Manager has never taken time off, not even for her mothers funeral or when her daughter passed away. Why? ( is there a time off policy?) She would never train a back up. One day one of the other girls asked me to verify an overage of $700.00 dollars and we counted it 3 times the CMS Manager asked us to give her the overage and she would take care of it. She would also state that she ran the Branch. In 4 years I saw 4 Branch Managers the last one started to turn the Branch around,but she didn't like him. He audited her cash and coin and found an overage of almost $20,000 and had her deposit it in to the Loomis account. From that point on she made comments that he had to go. Why doesn't anyone ask the people in CMS about her? HR Hello ! There was allot of red flags in CMS , covering shortages , overages would get balanced out.

    Pros

    All federal government holidays off

    Cons

    Poor pay for what you actually do. Tons of under performing coworkers skating by because managment will not fire them. Turnover is greater then any other company i have ever seen. Training is horrible. Managment is very poor.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay and attention to training! The best and brightest employees are turning and running after few months.

    I worked at Loomis Fargo & Co. full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I can't think of a single one. Oh wait there's one they pay for your DPSST certification.

    Cons

    Low wages, no respect, long hours, no praise at all. They never remember the 1000 times you said yes they only remember the one time you say no. Horrible training lacking in so many areas. No support from management at all. They come in after you and leave before you, then complain about how much they work. The common saying is "Not my problem" if you ask someone for something. They have been investigated by BOLI numerous times for unlawful hiring and firing practices. Not to mention the President and Vice President of HR flew in from corporate a few years ago because they were getting so many complaints about the Portland branch. They conducted an anonymous non management survey, and the results were not at all surprising. It was bad! They screw over valuable employees to keep them where they need them instead of letting them get what few promotions they do have to offer. You never hear anything from them about the job you're doing unless you are doing it wrong or going way way outside of your job duties to cover their butt on something. They pit the departments against each other, so no one wants to work together they just blame each other for everything. IThey are losing long term employees everyday and they don't care, they can hire people who weren't grandfathered into the good pay scale and pay them half as much to risk their lives everyday. People are dying for $11 an hour, that's just not enough money to risk your life everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house management wise! Treat your employees like people not numbers. Pay more! If you raise your starting wage maybe just maybe you'll be able to hire and keep quality employees. Give praise for a job well done, not just shame when someone screws up. Give RAISES! Create advancement opportunities, for people that do a good job not just for the people that kiss your butt and stroke your ego. Just treat people better and you will save money on hiring because you won't have to do it as often.

    Pros

    You will never get ahead in this company. Only management make out here by taking from the employees.

    Cons

    To go home at the end of the day?

    Advice to Management

    Get off your butts and do something other than to come in at 0:600 and leave at 14:00. All you do is pass the buck and lie.
