Driver/Security (Former Employee) – Dayton, OH – April 30, 2016
Working for brinks was fun and hard working. The people there were great to work with always helping one another. You got to carry a gun and that was fun bc i missed carrying one from being in the service.

Very fun work, I really enjoyed it. The people around you always are with you at all times making sure you have what you need to perform your job. The benefits are great as well as the retirement plan. Is a good company to work for!
Brinks is trying to put the company back in the black at the expense of their employees
Driver / Messenger (Former Employee) – Terre Haute, IN – July 22, 2015
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
Rate of pay is not comenserate for the hazards of the job
Need to be willing to work in a fast pace environment.
Teller, Vault (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – September 14, 2015
Unfortunately I can't give you a typical day at work because of security reasons but I can tell you that I learned how to handle a lot of money. Management was cool very easy going and able to get along with. Some of my co-workers were hard to get along with but all in all ok to work with. The hardest part of the job is that you don't get breaks and some times a 10-15 min break helps out to get threw a stressful day. The most enjoyable part of the job is working for awesome managers.
Teller (Current Employee) – Irondale, AL – August 18, 2015
Brinks is an enjoyable job has many pros and cons. Some of the pros is the amount of hours and flexible hours also the management is nice. The cons is the long hours and not being able to get off at a set time each day.
Customer Service Specialist II (Current Employee) – Coppell, TX – January 31, 2016
I love working for my Manager. He is great to work for and he have ideals to streamline our work. I am on the phone all day and it is very busy. I take incoming calls 50 to 100 phone calls a day. I have learned how to set up new customers for service, learned about claims, and in the process learning about Money Processing, ATM, & CompuSafe. My co-workers are like family and we look out for each other. Hardest part is working holidays. The most enjoyable is making the customer happy - resolving issues.
work hours are flexible if I need to change my shift.
A great company too work for. You have to be alert at all times, when people see an armor car vehicle all they are seeing is dollar signs.
Driver (Former Employee) – Newark, NJ – March 14, 2016
A great part about of the position was the travelling. I learned a great deal more about the state of New Jersey than I did when I was in high school. I also like working outdoors so that was a perk for me too. Along with that I will really miss my co-workers. we had some good times and some good laughs.
Working out doors, A lot of driving which i also enjoyed.
Dangereous, A whole lot of driving, not recommended if one is married
Working for the company was okay. The management though, they do not care about you at all and not about what you have going on in your life to provide for your family. Working for BRINKS they wanted you to just be about them and nothing or nobody else. They did not care about if you had to pick your kid up from daycare or anything. I would not work for them again ever. They wanted you to choose them over your family. NOT a way to run business. Wanted you to work long hours but would not try and get the work done faster throughout the day. Things just were not ran right.
Messenger/Driver/Guard (Current Employee) – Irving, TX – March 10, 2016
Don't care about employee's..your just a number. Only worried about the dollar not the person. People working in the A/C get paid all the over time they work but not the people doing the hardest and most dangerous part of the job. Insurance is stupid expensive and pray you don't have take time off for an injury cause they will bend you in-half and break it off.
Armored Guard, Messenger & Driver (Current Employee) – Oakland, CA – January 23, 2015
A typical day at BRINKS, Inc. consists of long hours with little to gain from them. I have learned that they do not value their employees despite the importance and danger on the job. Management is uncaring towards employees, and they maintain their own profit above employee benefits. My co-workers are one of the few good things on the job, but unfortunately we're all stuck on what seems to be a sinking ship. The hardest part of the job is maintaining your security, awareness and consistent responsibilities. The most enjoyable part of the job is when the long hours shift is over.
occasional free lunches from customers and co-worker camaradrie
long hours, benefits gutted, next to nothing 401k, high expections and low rewards, overtime 5 hour cap, no double time, dangerous job
Worked there for quite some time and the management is horrible. So much favoritism there it's unbelievable. If you're not a suck up or in the clique you get no where. Plus they'll walk all over and stab you in the back. Tampa branch needs to be overhauled.
