Work life balance does not exist
Branch Manager (Former Employee) –  Toledo, OHAugust 20, 2017
Brinks is in the midst of major changes, for the worse. They have decided that this once great security company is now a manufacturing company. They are making changes to force management into the mindset of manufacturing, and away from security. This is a major detriment to the employees. In the past, the number 1 goal of the company was to bring their people home safe every night. This is no longer the goal. The mindset at hand is now profit at all cost.
Pros
mediocre pay
Cons
Work life balance is non existant.

Driver/Guard (Former Employee) –  Altoona, PAAugust 19, 2017
This job was grueling due to the fact that the hours were unpredictable and the vehicles were very poorly maintained, if at all. The area covered were huge and the time allowed for the pickups was not reasonable.

Productive work environment. Helping banking institutions and customers. Working with others and helping other employees with problems.
Lead Teller (Current Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHAugust 15, 2017
A typical day at work consist of receiving work for different banks filling order for customer, for messengers to deliver or other carriers.
Very stressful work environment,
End of day balance with coin and currency for each bank. Making sure all deposits where processed.
Management is very poor, no one is held accountable for errors. The room is disorderly and unclean.
Co workers try to keep things up beat and positive.
The hardest part of the job is correcting errors with the backing institutes, that others created, and researching the problem
I have learned how to run a currency room from start to end of day, how to manage people, and maintain a good working relationship with customers, and employees.
The end of the day knowing that I have satisfied all the backing institutions guide lines and that we balance in the room.
Pros
Customer satisfaction, Training, Opportunity for advancement
Cons
Poor management, stress related conditions, risk of robbery.

Cash Logistics Processor (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 11, 2017
By far the worst job I have ever had. The environment is what makes it so bad because the job is easy. Too many chiefs and not enough Indians, everyone wants to be in charge and the person in charge has no clue on what to do.

Cash Logistics Processor (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLAugust 2, 2017
Just a job to get it done and leave, no room to improve. Hard to learn due to exceptions and negativity. State an opinion and you will be wrong. But there are a lot of nice people that work there.

Driver (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MIAugust 1, 2017
A typical work day at brinks was ok but at times can be very long and stressful. I've learned how to deal with the public and excellent driving skills being employed with Brinks. Management had a few improvements that was needed but wasn't bad. The hardest part of working here was driving all day. The most enjoyable part of this job was being out on the road seeing and learning different areas of different cities.

CIT Vault Clerk (Armed) (Current Employee) –  Metairie, LAJuly 29, 2017
Cool people, BUT pay sucks. They don't pay anybody correctly unless you're on salary. No real advancement. They rather go outside the company to promote people rather than look in house.
