Cons: constant thought of handling high end commodities, monies and items that could temp robberies.
Normal days were compiled of receiving shipments from local companies, weighing and packaging items to airline and customs standards. Dealt very good with upper management and coworkers. Hardest part of the job was receiving last minute shipments late from companies with minimal time left to prepare and deliver to airport to make flights allowed to – more... ship items. Learned how to prepare shipments to travel across the world. – less
I WOULD RECCOMEND BRINK,S TO FRIENDS AND ASSOCIATES.
DRIVER/GUARD (Former Employee), Charlotte, NC – July 14, 2014
Pros: break room with a t.v.
Cons: routes can exceed 11 and 12 hours a day
BRINK'S IS A GOOD PLACE TO WORK. AFTER YOU LOAD YOUR LIABILITY ON THE TRUCK AND HEAD OUT ON YOUR ROUTE,YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN. YOU KNOW WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE AND YOU DO IT WITHOUT BEING MICRO MANAGED. FOR THE MOST PART YOUR PARTNER WILL BE EASY TO GET ALONG WITH.THE HARDEST PART OF THE JOB IS THE LONG HOURS.THE ENJOYABLE PART IS THE SATISFACTION OF KNOWING – more... YOU DID A GOOD JOB AND GETTING BACK TO BASE WITHOUT ANY INCIDENTS. – less
Job that is very high in risk compared to its benefits
Messenger/Driver/Guard (Current Employee), Houston, Texas – July 14, 2014
Okay Job for part time not something you wanna do everyday Job requirements not hard at all but the fact that their are so many other objectives throughout the day it is imperitive you be able to maintain mental composure throughout the day.

Messenger (Former Employee), Altoona, PA – June 30, 2014
Cons: no overtime, max of 5hrs a week, even thought you are worked well over 60 at least
I learned a great deal of ethic and responsibility and dedication here. Most of my co-workers became good friends at work as well as there for your outside of the workplace. The only enjoyable part of the job was my co-workers trying to keep spirits high/light and the customers we serviced were very pleasant and understanding and very greatful when – more... you went the extra mile. The work load was heavy to start, physically but doable of course; however as time progressed we steadily lost a great number of employees including the branch supervisor due to the continually fading work conditions. Being in a medal box with absolutely no flowing air or a/c takes a tool when loading so much weight daily; only because once broke the company did not see fit to spend the extra funds to replace any parts, just enough to get it running. Not very safe in such a high risk job. no work day is less then 8hrs, most are at least 10 and upwards of 12-16 a day 5-6days a week. The overtime was also taken as of January 1, 2014. 1year with the company and I have watched over 14 employees come and go, most over stress and heavy work weeks. – less
Driver (Current Employee), South Bend, IN – June 25, 2014
Pros: coworkers, fun job.
Cons: pay, management, benefits, random hours.
Brinks only pays 5 hours overtime per week regardless of hours. They found a loophole with DOT and it's being used to outrite rob employees. You could work anywhere from 8-17 hours in a day and you never know when you will be done.

I worked here in November 2012 as the Currency room supervisor. The staff had their own way of doing things and management didn't get informed. Management tried to change things too fast without standing back and seeing the big picture which led to a few employees leaving the company. I would not go back to this company in a million years and even if – more... you know what froze over. – less
