    Pros

    Weekly pay and benefits

    Cons

    Not paid enough for placing your life on the line, management is poorly skilled, employee relations (taking the interests of employees as stakeholders) needs to be improved upon, poor talent management, no real room for advancement due to nepotism and favortism

    Advice to Management

    Avoid conflicts of interest, do what is right and not what you think is right, when you have an upstanding employee, treat them fairly instead of being intimidated, and take some training classes (i.e. ethics).

    Pros

    NONE. Nothing good. Run for your life. Management is terrible. Armored Clown Car service

    Cons

    No one should ever work for this company. The management is awful. They want you to come in on days off and complain when you need to be off. You will work for the dumbest people on the planet that make more than you. And if you ever were to call out for being sick, they try to punish you by putting you on a route with a driver that can't hop loaded with coin and 100 stops. Super dangerous job and the safety protocols are absolutely dumb and unsafe. You are always guilty until proven innocent. No rewarding anything. I've quit awhile ago and am so happy I'm out. This was the worst job I've had in my life. The pay is hideous like its welfare salary. Trust me on this you can do better than this place. The company revenues about 50 million dollars annually but does not want to pay their employees. Kevin Dunbar is a crook. Oh and if you look for a new job and try to reference them, they tell you they can't or won't. I didn't even give them a 2 weeks notice just straight up bye Felicia it was awesome.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to management because they're all useless.

    I worked at Dunbar Armored full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had two partners who were great.

    Cons

    I had one partner who did not speak English and would yell at me in Spanish. I had one partner who told me inappropriate things all day. The worst thing is management. No one with a college degree, some terrible military mindset veterans, and a whole lot of incompetence.

    Advice to Management

    No Advice to Management. Management is worthless.
