    I have been working at Dunbar Armored part-time

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling as they work with your time frame, and it is easy to hit over time due to different routes.

    Cons

    Sometimes they are short handed which can either help you with over time or drown you in a long route.

    I have been working at Dunbar Armored part-time

    Pros

    Plenty of hours if you want them. Started out at 40+ a week while being "part time". Benefits are payed out for 30 hrs a week so even though you start out part time you get most full time benefits. Company does pay bonuses for signing up and for your armed guard license.

    Cons

    Work days vary, scheduled days off vary. One day you can work 8 hours and the next will be 12.

    I worked at Dunbar Armored full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you enjoy driving/riding in very large, shabily maintained clunky vehicles for extended periods and rarely with the same partner twice in a week, on long, complicated routes, with the ever present possibility of being shot, then you may enjoy this job. Most of my co-workers were decent people.

    Cons

    Employee turn-over is nearly constant, forming any deep bond with co-workers is rare. Vehicles break down often. Training is extremely brief and grossly inadequate - it helps if you are highly intelligent and a fast learner. Some of my co-workers/supervisors were just horrible human beings.

    Advice to Management

    Devote more resources towards training. Stop rewarding branch management for skimping on employee "team building" and vehicle and shop resources and maintenance. Decentivize "shop politics/drama" and encourage "partnerships" or "teams". Seemingly intentionally pitting every employee/supervisor against everyone else is just a despicable corporate strategy.

    Pros

    If you enjoyed the military , you might like this place at first .

    Cons

    Poor leadership begins at the very top . Company processes are primitive. Place is only tolerable in a poor economic down time. Every employee I spoke with was looking for a exit . Expect little coaching on how to succeed at your roll. Nepotism rarely is good in leadership or business .

    Advice to Management

    Get some modern leadership training . Provide staff modern marketing tools and assistance. Ask for honest feedback on how to improve the company . Listen and leave your ivory tower to visit the peasants .
