Driver-Messenger (Former Employee) – Salem, NC – April 25, 2017
Typical day at work involved heavy lifting, loud environment (driving in armored vehicle) Customer Service is a necessity working at Brinks. Management is somewhat inflexible when it comes to new ideas. Best part of the job was the camaraderie and the customers.
Corrdinator (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – November 20, 2016
I worked night so me and my team off loaded the trucks then once that is complete. We restock the shelfs with everything that came off the truck. This has to be completed before the store opem at 8 am. The best time are holiday we give the team special food like for thanksgiving and Christmas.
A place where if you work hard you will be promoted. You do have to have open availability to succed. Middle management is poor and feels threatened by strong preformers, but if there is an opening you have to go for it. Turnover is above average and it takes a while to get someone hired(about 5 weeks from application). You can however be promoted all the way up the ranks without a college degree but it is preferred.
Teller (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – October 31, 2016
the hours are long and management really does nothing to help you. A lot of the time you feel as if you have no voice and you have to constantly prove yourself. They have terrible work ethics, praise the people that slack off and are hard on the people that work hard.
overtime for inhouse employees
hours and work atmosphere. There is no sense of team work
I'm used to working with money and around large sums of money and processing deposits, so the work is not foreign or different or hard for me. its the long hours. there is no cut off time you work till the work is done and as a current employee my branch has finally decided to hire more processors after the constant complaint for almost a whole year that we need help. there have been days I have worked with no break over 13 hours standing and that is because the longer I break the longer I will be there. the management is no help rude and overbearing. the cash lead has no idea how to talk to employees and work life sucks. I have no home life because we are there morning till night.
I really enjoyed working for Brinks. I would leave my home around 12pm and go to teller machine, collect deposits, and then take them to the bank and get back home around 1pm. I just had one bank to work with. I enjoyed meeting and talking with tellers at bank. It was quick and fairly easy. The hardest part was my family and friends thought I should not do this job because they thought it was too dangerous. I never felt afraid. The teller machine was replaced with a more modern one and they did not need deposit pullers anymore.
Short hours, quick in and out and I loved talking to tellers and sometimes customer.
Cashier/Teller (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – September 30, 2016
Managers give their workers their workload and do nothing the whole day but watch other people work. upper management changes the way work is done to how they see it being more efficient but really just make things much much harder. they also cut down on workers to make few people do a lot of work and save some money, by far the worst job i have ever had.
