    I worked at Rochester Armored Car (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Getting to know your repeat customers and driving on the open road

    Cons

    Low pay for the responsibility and having to carry a firearm, benefits are horrible. They probably still would not even offer health insurance if they were not forced to by Obamacare. No Overtime. Not sure how that is even legal.

    Advice to Management

    Offer better pay and benefits to attract better personnel and retain good employees.

    Pros

    They will pay for your CC license. That is about it! A chimp with a hammer could do better running the branches.

    Cons

    This company! Bunch of want to be cops! Classic blue collar workers, complain about everything; then they wonder why they hate their life.

    Advice to Management

    Sellout to Brinks!

    Pros

    None. Management especially including newly promoted management need management classes. Screaming and degrading employees is not right.

    Cons

    No proper training at all. Scolded at every turn for not knowing enough. How about some training. Rediculous. Everyone dislikes management severely.

    Advice to Management

    Get some management classes. Condescending, intimidating, gossiping about sleeping with married men is not appropriate, completely unprofessional. Cash room.

    I have been working at Rochester Armored Car full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    get plenty of hours, get to carry your firearm of choice, paid vacation, paid holidays, Christmas and thanksgiving off

    Cons

    no set hours, trucks are used till they cannot pass inspection anymore, so prepare to deal with a truck breaking down at least once a month, or no a/c in the hot summers and no heater in the winter

    Advice to Management

    should listen to some of your employees and not just the manager because ALOT could be improved and the turnover rate wont be so bad

    I worked at Rochester Armored Car full-time

    Pros

    - Fairly easy job.
    - Can expect consistency day-in and day-out.

    Cons

    - Trucks are kept in very poor shape.
    - Loading/unloading area is a filthy garage.
    - Family-run company, so absolutely no room for growth beyond a point.
    - Management doesn't seem interested in hearing concerns of employees so they might improve their company.
    - No employee break area and bathroom is gag-worthy with awful plumbing.
    - Some employees think very highly of themselves with their "piece" strapped to their side.
    - The family members who run payroll are completely unqualified and can hardly go one pay period without screwing something up.

    Advice to Management

    Once the older family members retire, I have no faith in the sons running anything.

    Pros

    Casual wear, work shirts provided (eventually), can talk to your co-workers at your leisure, can stretch legs when ever needed

    Cons

    Too many to mention but here are a few - low pay, dirty conditions, lack of management, blantent favoritism, lack of communication, not enough chairs for all employees to sit so they're forced to stand up all day, no benefits

    Advice to Management

    Tell management to do there job and quit playing favorites, pay the drivers overtime when they earn it, fix vehicles

    I worked at Rochester Armored Car full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    In Short Great Oppurtunity to drive and or go to various locations and work. Some great guys to work like fmr U.S. Military Co- Workers and plenty of work hours to go around.

    Cons

    To many to list/ A SERIOUS LACK OF MANAGEMENT MISCOMMUNICATION And Disgruntled older guards who have been around way to long. Quite a few of immature young guys that show off and talk to much! and to much is never good with something like this.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication with your lower echelon of employees!!! Be extremely careful of your hiring practices too many strange and out of the Twilight Zone! weirdos working here!
