    Just another dead end company that is driven only by the bottom line and nothing more

    I worked at Loomis full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Met great drivers/guards/vault personnel who are now personal friends.

    Cons

    Where to begin...seriously. Everything else up at the Springfield, VA branch was just downright awful in every aspect! The management is the worst problem. They all have huge egos, and have no experience as far as pertaining to your job, which leads to a ton of aggrivation for you. The management makes absolutly no effort to communicate with you on key issues pertaining to your job, and lack common sense/courtesy skills to work with you. There is zero appreciation for the employees in general, especially to the ones who actually work hard and do a good job. To management, the way they "reward" the hard workers who try to bring the routes back earlier is to add even more work to their routes. The management also can truly care less about your safety. They constantly take shortcuts that jepordize your safety even more than it already is! Sending out people to dangerous areas without guards when necessary, and now sending out some routes with only one person! We never had Christmas gatherings/parties at all, never any bonuses, and half of the years I was there, not even a pay raise. The jumpers get paid the same as the drivers, which is a complete joke. You start out driving, but when you handle a ton more responsibility and start risking your life by jumping out of the truck, you don't get any raise. The trucks given to you for the routes are all old, disgusting, and are held together by tape & glue pretty much. Considering they are a company that truly rely on their trucks to be in good operating condition to do the necessary work, they hardly make their condition a priority. The trucks have terrible smells, multiple leaks, malfunctioning and missing parts, etc. You don't get paid OT over 40 hours because of a stupid trucking loophole. Routes are definitely very long and exhaust most of the workers. Company will do anything and everything possible to fatten up the bottom line, which is all the company and the Springfield, VA branch care about.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    First thing would be for all of management to spend time doing the tech's job so they truly understand your job so that would prevent a lot of issues. Another would be to appreciate the good employees you have, because there is absolutly none of that, which leads to the never-ending huge turnover rate. Finally, to do the right thing and pay your route workers more money and over time, along with treating them fairly.

    No life, no college, complete dead end. Only work here if you are comfortable earning too little to live a life

    I have been working at Loomis

    Pros

    Its an easy job, you get to sit on your rear end all day. The people you work with are generally semi-professional, former military and law enforcement. Otherwise, no other pro's.

    Cons

    Forced overtime is constant, working late hours to finish a route. Constant heat from management for working too much overtime, when they cannot effectively communicate between each other to resolve customer issues and scheduling problems. Constant change in schedule makes any sort of college difficult, if not impossible. Thankless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve your communication between management, and reign in the routes. There has been much improvement over the years, but much still needs to be done. STOP PLACING THE BOTTOM LINE OVER YOUR EMPLOYEES SCHEDULES. Too much time away from family for too little pay. Never, ever should you tell an employee NOT to take their breaks. That is illegal.
