      I worked at Brink's Canada

      Pros

      Part time work. Some good people.

      Cons

      Long hours - 13 hour shifts Management Bullies and intimidates employees Vehicles very unsafe - 2 trucks have over 1 million kms. Poor training No support from management low morale Low pay for high risk job No room for advancement

      Advice to Management

      Complete overhaul of management team is needed, Bullying and intimidating employees is not the way to get results. Reward hard working employees, dont punish them by adding more work.

      I worked at Brink's Canada for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Coworkers are great; Meet lots of people and see lots of places you don't normally see; Work both indoors and outdoors; Very little interaction with management while working on the road; Great benefits and okay pay; relatively low strees; punch in and punch out, no taking the work home with you.

      Cons

      One word: management. Hypocrisy and contradiction are a way of life for them. Backstabbing, constant miscommunication, blatant lies, deny and never admit fault, condescending know-it-alls, unsupportive, don't care for employees, make decisions they think are great but utterly fail ignoring the fact those same decisions were made years ago by the management at that time and failed just the same; rarely introduce themselves...

      Pros

      Training, corporate phone plan, employee development

      Promotions based on who you know and not what you can do. Very disappointing for those who have put in over 10 years in the industry.
