    In one sentance..."Meh, it was a job"

    Armored Driver/Guard/Messenger (Former Employee)
    Columbus, GA

    ProsOn the job training done well by experienced people who can show you what to do and how to do it correctly. HR generally had its stuff together.

    ConsLow pay for high stress, high workload, high danger job. low/no wage increase from year to year. Equipment failures can lead to looooong (14hr+) days. Advancement beyond 'peon' level not possible; management always brought in from outside.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to keep people, pay them more, and don't issue equipment that you KNOW is bad.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good for anyone desperate for a job... Not good for most people wanting to get anywhere in their careers

    Cash Teller (Former Employee)
    Tempe, AZ

    ProsSolid benefits package, good entry-level job, pretty stable job in that you didn't get fired unless you stole money or failed drug testing

    ConsVery few if any room for advancement, low income for the type of work, bad attitudes all over the workplace, black out days so you could never go anywhere for Christmas

    Advice to Senior ManagementDear Upper Management,

    If a good number of your employees are leaving or are threatening to leave because they are constantly treated badly by another employee or superior, do something about it! Don't risk letting all your other good employees go, at the expense of this one that makes their job a living nightmare!

    Please pay us more! My hourly pay only went up a dollar in 4 years!

    Remember that we have families and lives outside of work. Please don't make us work overtime so much. If there is too much work, hire more people. Furthermore, it's really stinky that tellers have black-out days between December 15th - January 15th, since we can never travel anywhere for Christmas.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    not great, but definitely could be better

    Armed Service Tech (Current Employee)
    Tampa, FL

    Prosok company because there's work to do

    Conscompany doesn't care about the employees and you will see it in day one guarantee, be prepared, one example of many... poor poor training and you will have to do the job by your own!!

    Advice to Senior Managementshame that other companies with less risk and minimum pay ARE better than this company

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Don't waste your time here. You're better off flipping burgers or cleaning port-o-potties

    Armored Driver/Guard (Current Employee)
    Portland, OR

    ProsYou do get to work with some people that share a lot of the same interests, which makes the job a little less miserable.

    ConsOh my oh my where do I begin...

    First and foremost, management. Management is probably the largest problem at this branch. I don't know what it's like at other branches but the management here is incomprehendably horrible! Every level of management, from the ATM manager, the route/scheduling manager, loss prevention manager, so on and so forth, all the way up to the GM, nobody has a clue whats going on. Anytime you ask for time off, be prepared to give a REALLY good explanation as to why you need time off. Even then he tries to make you feel bad for asking anything. And when they tell you "family comes first", they're just blowing smoke up your (you know what). They couldn't care less about the employee's family or feelings for that matter. Keep in mind all managers here have egos bigger than the world itself. The GM himself thinks all employees are lower than dirt and makes it well known. This company is VERY top heavy. Way too many managers and all of them don't know what's going on.
    Another big problem are their stupid PDAs. Half the managers don't know how to use them or fix them. And they're constantly breaking or not working. Our job revolves around these things and the fact that they buy unreliable equipment and don't maintain them makes the job miserable and frustrating. The trucks are constantly in need of work. The mechanics definition of a repair involves bailing wire and tape. Not exactly safe...
    Pay is not great either. For a job where (lets be honest here) the threat of being robbed or killed or both is constantly increasing, getting paid anywhere from 10.50 - 13.00 and hour, on top of the working conditions, do not really make this a very desirable job. Let me be clear, the job WAS actually fun and enjoyable BEFORE Loomis bought out the company I worked for before. Now they have turned the whole job into and aggravating chore.

    This place is demoralizing and a complete joke (actually no one here finds it funny). They are constantly making new policies that have no real use in the real world, and sometimes put their own employees at more risk. They actually hinder our abilities to effectively do our jobs. If you love horrible work environments and bad management then this is the place for you!

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease just spend one week doing what we do on a daily basis. Maybe then you'll understand what we deal with and all the (to be completely honest) completely unnecessary policies and regulations out forth by people that have never actually done the job themselves.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsSome times are you able to get some OT

    ConsThe way things are managed and how management treat employees could be a lot better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease take a moment to reflect on your actions and show respect, appreciation, and care to your employees no matter what position they hold.
