    I worked at Loomis Fargo & Co. full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I can't think of a single one. Oh wait there's one they pay for your DPSST certification.

    Cons

    Low wages, no respect, long hours, no praise at all. They never remember the 1000 times you said yes they only remember the one time you say no. Horrible training lacking in so many areas. No support from management at all. They come in after you and leave before you, then complain about how much they work. The common saying is "Not my problem" if you ask someone for something. They have been investigated by BOLI numerous times for unlawful hiring and firing practices. Not to mention the President and Vice President of HR flew in from corporate a few years ago because they were getting so many complaints about the Portland branch. They conducted an anonymous non management survey, and the results were not at all surprising. It was bad! They screw over valuable employees to keep them where they need them instead of letting them get what few promotions they do have to offer. You never hear anything from them about the job you're doing unless you are doing it wrong or going way way outside of your job duties to cover their butt on something. They pit the departments against each other, so no one wants to work together they just blame each other for everything. IThey are losing long term employees everyday and they don't care, they can hire people who weren't grandfathered into the good pay scale and pay them half as much to risk their lives everyday. People are dying for $11 an hour, that's just not enough money to risk your life everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house management wise! Treat your employees like people not numbers. Pay more! If you raise your starting wage maybe just maybe you'll be able to hire and keep quality employees. Give praise for a job well done, not just shame when someone screws up. Give RAISES! Create advancement opportunities, for people that do a good job not just for the people that kiss your butt and stroke your ego. Just treat people better and you will save money on hiring because you won't have to do it as often.

    I worked at Loomis Fargo & Co. part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You will never get ahead in this company. Only management make out here by taking from the employees.

    Cons

    To go home at the end of the day?

    Advice to Management

    Get off your butts and do something other than to come in at 0:600 and leave at 14:00. All you do is pass the buck and lie.
