    I worked at Loomis Fargo & Co. as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    I had lots of hands-on opportunities to learn. It was a friendly teamwork environment. Helpnwas readily available. Hours were flexible.

    Cons

    There is a strong emphasis on you-must-produce, strong emphasis on statistical numbers, not all tools all available

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'd suggest to give more concrete weekly goals as needed when requested

    Pros

    Job Security, they transferred me across the country even though they didn't have to. It was a huge help with a job in a new city. They worked to find a place for me. They do seem to hire a certain kind of person for ATM Techs/ Money Couriers. Good people

    Cons

    Upward mobility, no training, few raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Little attention paid to employees. Fruit gift baskets after a robbery don't quite cut it.

    I worked at Loomis Fargo & Co.

    Pros

    There is an overall feeling that you are being productive. You are given the freedom to make decisions on your own.

    Cons

    Extremely demanding on time. Days averaged 12 hours, and more. You were on call 24/7 and usually got at least one call from corporate on the weekends. You could never reach corporate if you needed to call them back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Our CEO of the US needs to take a hard look at his "district vice-presidents." More than a couple are lacking people skills. Stop MAKING your employees work the ridiculous hours, and show them that you care about something other than the Swedish krona the stock is trading at.

    I have been working at Loomis Fargo & Co.

    Pros

    Work is fairly easy once you are trained and get the hang of it. Had good teamwork among coworkers. Decent benefits and yearly raises.

    Cons

    Chronically understaffed and this is coming from someone that's been there over 5 years. Because you're understaffed you end up working into overtime everyday and cannot leave until ALL the work is done, no matter how much. So give up having a family or social life if you work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work harder at getting adequate staffing, especially if you are already understaffed and plan to pick up some new business or customers.
