Cash Processor (Former Employee) –  South Bend, INDecember 12, 2017
This is a good job if you do not have any kids and are willing to work overtime everyday. The people you work with are easy to get along with just the job itself is hard and time consuming.
Pros
weekends off
Cons
long hours

micromanaged by upper management who has no idea how to do your job
Vault Processor (Former Employee) –  Richmond, VADecember 11, 2017
Our start time was constantly changed due to upper management trying to micromanage our hours even though it was not our errors causing us to stay extremely late. Upper management treats you like just a number and not a person, says he cares but really doesn't and his actions prove that. The co-workers are good minus the occasional pain in the neck but overall a decently fun crowd. The job is very stressful as you deal with large amounts of money and if any money is even thought to be missing it is your fault until proven innocent.
Pros
coworkers are nice
Cons
management is awful

The organization needs to be re-defined
Analyst (Current Employee) –  TexasDecember 10, 2017
This company needs to re-evaluate their work ethics, they lack considerably in many areas. The retention rate is a very poor one, very good people once employed do realize that the company does not has the best interest of the employee at hand. Employees come and go like the winds in spring. The few that have been there for a couple of years, stay because they cannot afford to leave, not that they want to stay, they just cannot afford to leave their current position. When applying to this company, look at what they say like you would a commercial, do not believe what you hear, just like a commercial will not tell you the truth of what they represent. You might get ahead by who likes you, hard work does not really matter, just who likes or dislikes you.
Pros
None
Cons
Having to lie to customers when answering questions.

Customer Service Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Irving, TXDecember 5, 2017
Brink's Home Security is now ADT. I left Brink's before ADT bought them out. Brinks was a good company and I have nothing bad to say about them. I enjoyed my time there.

Bad Management Lack Of Pay
Cash Logistics Processor (Former Employee) –  Birmingham, ALDecember 4, 2017
The job doesn’t have an ending time. They only give you 1 30 min lunch and 2 15 min breaks when your there sometimes for more than 12 hours. This job really sucks, coworkers attendance affects your work load and hours. Horrible vacation and holiday pay system. Not very understanding and did I mention Management sucks! Nobody knows anything at the branch, most of the bRanches do everything different because there is no type of system or structure.
Pros
Listen to my music during the shift
Cons
No heat or air

Good Starter Job
Route Logistics Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Columbia, MODecember 1, 2017
Its a good job, but fast paced and must meet tough time requirements. I wish we had more holidays off and the pay scale needs to be reevaluated due to the lack of raises the company gives.

Job is okay.
Driver (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CANovember 29, 2017
This company isn't a bad company at all. If you like to work long hours then this is the job for you. Uniforms are given when hired. So that's a good thing. Work environment is okay.

Money Room Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Biloxi, MSNovember 28, 2017
Management was poor. There were personal issues in the vault and the manager was not educated enough to resolve the issues. The schedule is stringent. There was no deviating from it.

Busy environment
Cash Processor (Current Employee) –  Akron, OHNovember 28, 2017
It's a decent company to work for, but the work/life balance is almost non-existant. A typical day at work is processing orders from customers and packing out orders for the next day. Coworkers are great, management is decent. It's a small family-like environment. The hardest part of the job is the weight of the bags you carry around a lot, and the hours and not being able to get things done for home because you are working all business hours all week, and it's difficult to get any time away.
Cons
hours of operation

Driver/Operator (Former Employee) –  Albany, GANovember 17, 2017
You start work at 6 am and you don't leave until your route is finished. The hours are long and unpredictable. It is really hard to plan anything. I loved the job and my co-workers. I would work there again if I had the opportunity.
Pros
liked the people I worked with
Cons
long hours.
