    I have been working at Loomis Fargo & Co. (More than a year)

    Pros

    8-5 hrs very structured schedule with most government observed holidays off

    Cons

    I thought this would be a great job but ended up finding lack of leadership and no shortage of blame when you mess up due to lack of training.

    I have been working at Loomis Fargo & Co. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The employees are good people and if you want 10+ hours of OT a week you'll get it...

    Cons

    Busting your butt for pennies. Run a gain for the quarter and get profit sharing of .20 on the hour. Management gives no praise or real incentive to do a good job except the meager wages and the "profit sharing". The trucks that hold millions of dollars don't get maintained even if you tell management.

    Advice to Management

    Try and have a people first attitude. Stop running your employees down with 12-16+ hour days and when you are going to offer profit sharing make it worth while instead of insulting. Maybe sending your branch managers to Dubai isn't the best investment....

    I worked at Loomis Fargo & Co. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    On the job training done well by experienced people who can show you what to do and how to do it correctly. HR generally had its stuff together.

    Cons

    Low pay for high stress, high workload, high danger job. low/no wage increase from year to year. Equipment failures can lead to looooong (14hr+) days. Advancement beyond 'peon' level not possible; management always brought in from outside.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep people, pay them more, and don't issue equipment that you KNOW is bad.

    I worked at Loomis Fargo & Co. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Solid benefits package, good entry-level job, pretty stable job in that you didn't get fired unless you stole money or failed drug testing

    Cons

    Very few if any room for advancement, low income for the type of work, bad attitudes all over the workplace, black out days so you could never go anywhere for Christmas

    Advice to Management

    Dear Upper Management,

    If a good number of your employees are leaving or are threatening to leave because they are constantly treated badly by another employee or superior, do something about it! Don't risk letting all your other good employees go, at the expense of this one that makes their job a living nightmare!

    Please pay us more! My hourly pay only went up a dollar in 4 years!

    Remember that we have families and lives outside of work. Please don't make us work overtime so much. If there is too much work, hire more people. Furthermore, it's really stinky that tellers have black-out days between December 15th - January 15th, since we can never travel anywhere for Christmas.
