Cons: not enough hours that are steady.

Most exciting part of the job was help customer have peace of mind by offering great security services. My jobs was to speak with home inspector's here in the US and Canada and signed them up for our home inspection program.
Commercial Sales Operations Global 500 (Current Employee), Coppell, TX – October 11, 2014
Pros: pay benefits
Cons: long work days
While Brinks is a very stable company, there is little to no work life balance, it is usually 11 to 13 hour days, and a couple of weekends per month. You must also be reachable as a manager 7 days per week.
There are good people that work at Brinks, but little to no training, which makes their jobs very difficult especially when training new employees.
The – more... hardest part of the job is trying to take care of hundreds of customers each day and not being able to. Your hands are tied.
Most enjoyable part of the job is when you are able to take care of a customer and know they appreciated your effort – less
