    Pros

    -get paid about 11.70 starting out
    -If you want long hours, you got it
    -People you work with are awesome, mostly hispanic and black people so you may feel a little left out, but they are amazing, fun, and GREAT people to talk to, shame to never see them again
    -When talking to management, they are nice, and do take what you say into consideration
    -they pay for your guard card certification classes
    -401K

    Cons

    Oh here we go.....
    -The armored trucks are crap, most of them have very bad AC
    -to get a truck/van fixed, it takes forever and the problem will still exist
    -The armored vans have HORRIBLE side mirrors. Most of the time you are going to have to slowly and blindly move over into other lanes of traffic
    -the steering is almost always off on the vehicles, and no one will change it
    -get ready to have people blaring and honking their horns at you ALL DAY if youre in the van
    -They don't pay you for your gear or give you and gear to wear
    -VERY long hours, and if you lived a while away like I did, the extra money won't mean a thing
    -If you ever try to get a hold of dispatch, or management from the phone line, get ready to never talk to anyone, so if you're ever under fire, no need calling your management
    -Jobs: Either be stuck up font, driving all day tired as hell and forcing yourself to stay awake, or in the back, crammed and in a little seat, feeling every single bump in the road, intensified
    -My last day of working, I worked 15 hours straight, and they didn't tell me that I was going to be taking another shift after mine was done

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys need to listen to what the employees are saying. If the truck is messed up, you NEED to fix it right then and there, not take 1-2 weeks to fix AC. YOu also need to get rid of some trucks, they're horrible. It would get 100 degrees inside those things, and they don't have AC or blow heat out all day for 11-15 hours.

    My experience at Loomis Fargo & Co has been not bad so far, but at the same time not great.

    Pros

    job is relatively close to the house making it a short drive to work. New to the company so obviously there is the early motivation in the hopes of moving up. So far there have been no issues,...so far so good!

    Cons

    The pay can definitely be better, especially compared to the competitors. Also, I believe that pay should be based on performance instead of time in service and some of the other methods of paying employees. There are are several small issues but nothing to serious.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is very important to treat all employees equally, It is understood that time in service leading to senority is vital but not in every single situation. For example, someone can be with a company for 8 years but has no ambitions to move up the ladder whereas an employee of 2 years has been humping to move up. Once again, performance based salaries!
