    Pros

    Co-workers were great, if you liked the open road then it was a good job in that aspect.

    Cons

    Management non-existent, Trucks weren't maintained, problems around the workplace were never rectified, extremely long hours. Unsafe vehicles made the job even more dangerous than it should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more involved with the lower level employees and listen to what we have to say.

    Pros

    Pay not bad if you have been there for a while

    Cons

    No communication, starting pay should be higher, quick to write you up and take bonuses away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to listen to their employees. Defendant a lack of communication between supervisors, and branch manager. I personally have told management about ATM training issues and nothing was done in a timely matter.

    Pros

    Decent location in the Houston and you will get some exposure to financial services. Also there is potential to move up the corporate latter due to their high turnover.

    Cons

    High turnover, mediocre benefits and a backstabbing culture of distrust that will plague your psyche eventually. Many of the management moved up through the company have not worked elsewhere and do not have management experience or the perspective of how to do things right (or different).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read a book on management, understand empathy and learn how to manage employee performance better.

    I worked at Loomis full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay, medical insurance, paid vacations, sick days, and great co-workers. The jobs are easy to learn, and can be a challenge.

    Cons

    Hours were very long and tedious. You are expected to keep up with work flow and make deadlines without enough employees to do the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair to your employees and don't play favorites when distributing work load, vacation times, and work schedule. Encourage job advancement and recognition for working over and beyond whats expected.

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

    Pros

    They were flexible with my hours needing to be changed due to other commitments. They did provide good training in order to do your job properly.

    Cons

    Hours were not always ideal, almost never got out at schedule "out" time. Some managers would make you feel guilty for not staying beyond your shift to help assist with processing. There was little to no room for advancement.

    I have been working at Loomis full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A paycheck and thats about it.
    Would look good on your resume if you apply for a law enforcement job, border patrol or corrections

    Cons

    Long Work hours
    Crappy Work Vehicles
    Bad Orientation Training
    No privacy in vehicles with all the cameras and audio tape

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice if you would encourage employees instead of always critiquing them. I feel bad for the drivers man its honestly unhealthy to drive for so long with so little breaks in-between your work day. I'm talking about 8-14 hour work days. it would also be nice if this company paid for your gun permit and had a vault to which you can borrow a gun but they don't which is garbage. The training on what to do if a robbery happens is absolutely atrocious. Personally if your looking to apply here make sure your ready to deal with long work days and a management team that doesn't really give a damn about your safety.

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

    Pros

    plenty of hours, little or no experience required. The jobs to be performed are simple and easy to learn. This makes it great for college students, veterans, those looking to find jobs without a lot of experience.

    Cons

    hours are very long. Really long. At times I was averaging close to 50 hours a week. Pay is not on par for what you would expect in this industry. You are required to carry a weapon, and potentially risk your life in the event of a robbery, so the pay could be higher

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    increase pay, to help recruit and retain quality individuals

    Pros

    POTC paid for by company
    Ability to learn skills such as atm replenishment

    Cons

    They won't pay UI when they are required to including illegal separations.
    Overworked, you're bound to work 60-70 hour weeks no problem.
    Dog eat dog environment with worker hostility prevalent.
    No gun when you're an driver.
    Management never listens.
    Vehicles are junk and are rarely repaired, even after multiple VCR's are completed and submitted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wouldn't bother, they don't listen.
