    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.

    I worked at Loomis part-time (more than 10 years)

    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.

    Work you 50-60 hours a week like clock work, no work-life balance.

    I worked at Loomis

    Pros

    Consistent paycheck and great job for a single guy or girl with no life.

    Cons

    No life, greedy management staff, and cut throat mentality. Regional managers and their branch managers staff go on vacation every year for meetings. The rate you get hired in at is the rate u stay at. You might see .12 cents a year raise if your lucky. I know personally that management will all get together at lets say a convention for three days. Ive been at a table with about 20 or so people and the regional vice president put the entire meal, drinks, and apps on a company card for about I would guess $4000.00 at a really high end steak house. And the guys back at the shop, out on the road could barely ever get a burger and a dog at a cook out for say the 4 th of july right after they worked you 13 hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about the guys and gals who are sacrificing their life and families so you can line your pockets with gold.

    Pros

    Life Medical Vision 401 disability

    Cons

    Employer disconnect to reasons for employee turn over and firings at a drop of a hat.
    Poor leadership from inexperienced management NOT coming from actually work experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    promote from within, less control with more respect. Pay attention to why people are not smiling and the real reason people are always leaving!

    Pros

    You're treated like they don't care, they are running off any long term employees to save a buck. Denver branch management team should be scrapped and then sued!

    Cons

    sexual harsement, violent work place, treated like dirt. Ran by a militant !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start over with a new management team!

    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.

    Cons

    Company is a joke. Garbage companies like Republic Waste pay more for drivers. Like 15$ an hour without the risks of being mugged. Can't believe that shenanigans what income disparity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise pay and training standards lackeys

    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.
