    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Dunbar Armored full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Not stuck in an office. Just do your job.

    Cons

    Management is horrible. Could not care less about employees or the condition of the trucks. Could be a nice place to work. Horrible benefits. Cheap, unless you are family.

    Advice to Management

    Start making rounds to the offices to see what is really going on, talk to the staff without the manager staring at them, look at the trucks and give a damn about your people who are really making you the money!!!!

    I worked at Dunbar Armored full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Easy pay. Most people at co-worker level are friendly

    Cons

    Management and crew chiefs lie about policies and operating procedures, working in the bigger branch had alot of favoritism, being a crew chief ment getting whatever truck you want and its "for the job". Literally will send people out in trucks that will fail dot inspections.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing cause brinks bought em out.

    I worked at Dunbar Armored part-time

    Pros

    Pros? What Pros? None at the moment.

    Cons

    Not sure I have enough space. 1. Pay isnt worth it. Overtime is capped at 50hrs but management will still work you over that. 2. Constant schedule change. You may start the week with one schedule but by the end of the week your schedule changes two times. 3. Starting work without having a weapons carry card due to delay in class and still being put on truck and having to rely on someone else's "ability" or lack there...

    I worked at Dunbar Armored full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Weekly pay I guess, most of their sites were sitting jobs that didn’t require much patrolling.

    Cons

    Checks are often messed up, lazy supervisors, very low pay, no room for growth, no raises...EVER, the sites make you lazy. All you do is sit

    Advice to Management

    Replace THE ENTIRE 50 Schilling Rd/Circle team except Julie. I have been with this company for over a year and have never met anyone from management until my last day with the company. They’re too lazy to even check on their employees and conditions. They’re unprofessional and prefer to do EVERYTHING by text. I have personally overheard a Supervisor tell a potential employee to take “some urine” with him to his drug test.
