Pros: great pay, nice hours
Cons: dangerous, grave responsibility, and very short breaks
Shifts for Messengers usually start around 0600, ends whenever you're done with the route you're assigned. I learned how to work on ATM machines, use safes, firearms, count money at an accelerated rate, and increase my peripheral vision analysis. Management is always calm and collected, usually, and were usually quick to solve issues with work-related and of personal matters. Fellow co-workers usually have some military, law enforcement, or security background. The hardest part of working for Brink's is the adjustment to the hours. You don't get lunch breaks like normal employees in a break room and sometimes can hit 50+ hours with ease per week. You have your meal on the go, in between stops. the most enjoyable part, to me, was a consistent change of scenery.
