I have been working at Dunbar Armored part-time (More than a year)
Most of the driver/guards are great guys.
Long hours, terrible pay, management all the way from crew chiefs to regional management and probably far higher are a joke. Their only goal is to try to screw you over. The equipment is old, constantly breaking down, the mechanics are a joke, and at times the trucks are unworthy of the road but continue to travel (Akron boys can remember 411). Crew chiefs will say to do something according to Dunbar policy then turn around and do the opposite and attempt to burn you if you do the same. This company does not care about age or fitness they want warm bodies to fill spots. We seriously had a guy that was 72 years old with 2 replaced knees, and a fixed rotator cuff that was expected to carry hundreds of pounds of coin a day... we also have had guys pushing 350lbs easy that can't access a safe without being out of breath yet they are expected to walk malls in an expeditious manner. Finally is the work ethic of many at Dunbar... "screw it I get paid by the hour." Ok you want a 12 hour day get shuttle routes. Not everyone wants to spend their life in a rusty, noisey, half broken truck.
Advice to Management
Scrap the whole process start from the ground up. Crews should be given incentive to bring routes in quickly not punished by given additional stops that belong to another route. Members who continually bring routes in an hour to 3 hours later than everyone else should be punished not have routes custom built for them and their slowness. Get crew chiefs who want to protect their crews and fight for them not ones who either don't care or just want to show off to the boss and catch you with your hand in the cookie jar. Get managers that will talk to corporate and say hey this is wrong we need to fix it not offer a handjob when they come up with a new policy that is "safer" that will inevitably get someone injured or worse.
