I have been working at Loomis full-time (More than a year)

Pros

I enjoy my coworkers. I have a safe working environment. My immediate supervisors are great. I have no issues with my schedule.

Cons

The pay is a joke. They put you through a lengthy hiring process to ensure you're uniquely qualified for the position, then offer you a starting pay that you could find as a janitor. Loomis also doesn't pay overtime for the AST position (working on the trucks.) They can work you up to 70 hours a week and not pay you a single dime of overtime pay. The insurance is expensive and doesn't provide much coverage. You're forced to work the day before and the day after a holiday, so you can forget traveling to see any long distance family for the holidays. That includes EVERY nationally recognized holiday. There is literally no chance of promotion. And you can forget a decent raise. In the same meeting they tell you they made 3.5 million in profit last year, they'll tell you you're getting a 1% raise. ONE PERCENT. In a nutshell, unless you're truly desperate for a job, don't get your hopes up that this is the place to be.

Advice to Management

Take into consideration that your lower level employees are the ones who keep this company running. The pay should reflect the work, and for those of us out there in the run down parts of town carrying large amounts of money for YOU, we should be adequately compensated. And how about a decent raise? Longevity bonuses? Something more around Christmas than a Walmart gift card and a sandwich meat tray in the briefing room? Get with the program.

    I worked at Loomis full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good people - a lot of former LE and military veterans working for the company
    Fast Paced demanding job, fun, keeps you on your toes

    Cons

    Very little training
    you have to buy your own equipment , gun , vest
    dangerous
    low wages, long hours,
    you never know your schedule ahead of time , no respect from the public or customers, extremely demanding physically and mentally. the company wants retirees who don't care about the low wages yet the work load of the job is for a younger person. hard on your back , knees , ankles. you have to be able to learn very quickly new things so once again not necessarily good for older folks

    Advice to Management

    Repair the trucks, get raises for people or deal with a never ending revolving door, also be aware of the fact Loomis fires managers continually so have applications out
