Managing risk, not growing business focus of this very old company.

    I have been working at Brink's, Incorporated full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Few-very few co-workers who still value good work ethics.

    Cons

    EVERYTHING ELSE. No time with family. Can't move up in the company. You have to know someone to be taken care of. No integrity. A haven for scum bags who want to get paid and do nothing. NO DISCIPLINE. You have to kill someone to get fired. Employees laugh at you for trying to correct their mistake. I wouldn't trust 95% of employees with a firearm much less handle cash. I would rather go back to the military and deploy to Iraq or Afghanistan again then to work for this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They don't care for what I have to say. I would just be wasting my breath.

    Pros

    Every day is fun, you get to flirt with all the ladies. Women love the uniform. This job looks good on your resume for those future cops if you don't get fired for stealing. They don't polygraph you but the background check is extensive. You get issued a handgun and utility belt, you can't carry your own weapon or gear.

    Cons

    You never know when your day will end until you clock out. 8 to 12 hour days and low hourly wage considering you are putting your life on the line to deliver money. Late dinners and my home life is limited due to the long days. No advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More pizza parties.
