    Former Employee - Computer Technical Support in Houston, TX

    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

    I have been working at Loomis Fargo & Co. full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Women like a man who wears a uniform and carries a gun.
    Lifting coin is a great workout.
    You learn the area that you work inside and out.

    Cons

    You'll never be appreciated regardless of how hard you work.
    Long hours, never know when you'll get out of work.
    Management is typically given to seniority rather than who deserves it.
    The job is dangerous. Always have to watch your back. Good people killed while protecting someone else's money.
    Pay is horrible.
    Good luck getting time off to interview elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take tips from the people doing the job. Quit making policies that slow us down and then expect us to go faster.

    Pros

    ok company because there's work to do

    Cons

    company doesn't care about the employees and you will see it in day one guarantee, be prepared, one example of many... poor poor training and you will have to do the job by your own!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    shame that other companies with less risk and minimum pay ARE better than this company

    I worked at Loomis Fargo & Co. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Working closely with people you really like and care about.

    Cons

    MANAGEMENT.
    Terrible about explaining what they expect from you up front.
    Micro Managing to the fullest.
    Unexpected excessive overtime.(you are told "occasional" overtime' turns out much more than "occasional
    Don't care about you family or home life.
    Expected to stay until everything has been balanced no matter how late; and even if it is by the time you're SUPPOSED to get off you're still guilt tripped into staying even later.
    If you're having a hard time financially and it comes time for you to have a gun and you tell them you can't afford it; it doesn't matter they'll fire you anyway.
    Huge turn over rate due to such ridiculous strict rules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Makes sure hiring managers are informing Interviewee's the exact requirements of the job; not just sugar coating things knowing their experience is worth semi lying to get them trapped there.
    Get organized.
    Care about your employees; that might be a big reason for such a big turnover?
    Nobody is perfect can we just please realize this one certain fact? I realize your business is based on perfection, but being logical is going to make you more money. People are in fact HUMAN believe it or not.

    I worked at Loomis Fargo & Co. full-time for more than 3 years

    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 have been working at Loomis Fargo & Co. full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The people I work with at ground level, in the trenches with, are good people, we are all in this pile together so we depend on each other.

    Cons

    You will work 12 to 14 hour days-overtime starts at 50 hours due to the driver/guard job title. HR is not responsive to your needs for doctor appts. for you, your children or spouse. Upper mgmt. has the same attitude. They leave at a set time each day, you could be out till 8pm after coming in at 7am that day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Houston Tx. headquarters needs to be more in tune with what is going on in Dallas Tx.

    Former Employee - Vault Teller in Burr Ridge, IL

    I worked at Loomis Fargo & Co. part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The only good thing about working for Loomis Fargo is the hourly pay rate for part time employees wasn't bad, DOE over $11.00.

    Cons

    Poor training, most positions are part time and receive no benefits. Mgt doesn't care about employees and wanted a "factory" environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need training in their own jobs. Management needs to put employees higher on their priority list.
