Great Company
Manager (Current Employee), Montgomery, ALAugust 25, 2015
Pros: the benefits
Cons: jumping through hoops to get small things done
A typical workday consisted of getting the routes out for work. I had 22 employees and 11 trucks that i was responsible for. I learned to deal with different personalities and different work related issues. My most enjoyable part of my job was keeping my employees safe and making sure my customers were happy.

high risk job- Super low pay
Associate First Line Technician (Former Employee), Miami, FLAugust 23, 2015
A company which doesn’t take into consideration your ideas even if they are brilliant, doesn’t deserve you. They should encourage you to grow because their company will grow and prosper with you as well. They shouldn’t prevent you from improving yourself.

Somewhat easy job with irregular hours
Vault Cashier (Former Employee), Austin, TXAugust 21, 2015
Pros: Consistant pay, every friday
Cons: Holidays, hours and time off
A lot of waiting around and "other duties" given during the down time. 40-50 hours a week. Scheduling time off was a nightmare. It was required to schedule time off for the entire year during the fall of the previous year. Who does that? Only two holidays off a year, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Horrible place
Driver/Messenger (Current Employee), West Springfield, MAAugust 11, 2015
tbis place does nothing but work its employees to the ground. Management is a game. They don't appreciate anything anyone does. Five hours of over time and that's all. Seventy plus hours a week.

A good work place to work a lot of overtime.
Armored Messenger (Former Employee), El Paso, TXAugust 10, 2015
Pros: Good work benefits & polite personnel.
Cons: Limited training & being monitored on work performance.
A good day at work is that you have your work shipments organize in the armored truck. What I've learned is speed, accuracy, and timing. Management is very professional. Co-workers are respectful. The hardest part of the job is servicing A.T.M.'s. The most enjoying part of the job is meeting different customers on a daily basis.

Friendly hard working people willing to share knowledge.
Contractor / Senior Project Manager (Current Employee), Coppell, TXJuly 27, 2015
Pros: Flexible work schedule
Cons: Hard to find contact information for resources.
Overall I really like Brinks but want to return to regular, full-time employment as contracting does not really suit me. I have tried for several months now but prefer regular full-time work.

I do have several very interesting projects which are challenging and fun to work.

I have had the privilege of meeting some very talented co-workers who will remain friends for life.

ATM Coordinator (Former Employee), Aurora, COJuly 26, 2015
Pros: the freedom I had to do my job
Cons: management
Brinks was a good company to work for and I had my own department so I really did not have a supervisor, mainly because no one knew anything about how to do my job.

Great place to learn
Cash Logistics Teller (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PAJuly 25, 2015
Pros: great schedule
Cons: minimum customer contact
You can learn every aspect of the job and advance by being versatile. Management is very flexible with day to day demands and work with you for your schedule. The hardest part of the job would be that the day is unpredictable. You may have a lot of work coming in to process or it may be less. The most enjoyable part of the job would be the satisfaction of knowing you provided great service for the customer and ensuring they were credited.

Brinks is trying to put the company back in the black at the expense of their employees
Driver / Messenger (Former Employee), Terre Haute, INJuly 22, 2015
Cons: Rate of pay is not comenserate for the hazards of the job
Brinks stopped all 401 K matching and retirement benefits, they also stopped paying overtime once you had worked more than 5 hours in a week... I don't understand how they justified this as it seems to be in violation of federal law but when I asked management they could not explain the companies actions

driver
Armed Security Guard (Former Employee), San Jose, CAJuly 19, 2015
A day at work is to drive and wait around , learn how money flows , management not a problem just had to follow instructions as directed. Co workers was little contact . Hardest part of the job was waiting in the truck up to one hour at a time with no entertainment. The most enjoyable was that it was simple to handle without dealing with the public
