    Pros

    The only pro in my opinion is the sites. They have laid back sites where not too much is required.

    Low pay, bull crap benefits, incompetent supervisors,

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule if you are a "flex-time" employee.
    Benefits if you work 30 hours + (not that great but something)

    Cons

    Can have really long days. Work is as long as it takes to make all the deliveries.
    Pay is sub-par.
    If you have a pulse and a guard-card you are hired.
    Turn-over is high.
