    Pros

    Slowly growing and making changes to catch up with the times. For the most part coworkers are friendly and supportive.

    Cons

    Pay isn't great. If pay had some sort of structure it may be a little more fair. As far as culture, flexibility, and environment they're stuck in the 90's. At times it can be stuffy and not fun. Lack of concern for employees safety in inclement weather because they NEVER close.

    Advice to Management

    Support, teach and encourage your employees to grow.

    I have been working at Dunbar Armored part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Weekends off, hours are decent if you don't have a life during the week. Camaraderie with fellow driver/ guards is great, donuts.

    Cons

    Pay is not worth the risk, it's a revolving door and the faithful are overworked, manager is lazy, unorganized, lots of backbiting and blame rather than taking responsibility. Write-ups for silly things, trucks break down every single day.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate, and actually get up and do your job as it's described. Make smarter hiring decisions instead of just trying to fill spots with anybody. Need better pay to keep people.

    Stop being lazy and corrupt and actually care about your workers.

    Pros

    The pros to this job is that there is no pro. Management don't look out for no one but himself

    Cons

    Work over 30 overs a week for a part-time employee for the whole week, but still get pay nothing. And when you do get annual raise it is only in cents

    Advice to Management

    Part time should be exactly that part time. If they can't hire people has full time give the part time people their due
