Vault Personnel (Current Employee), Bridgeport, CT – June 24, 2015
Pros: Over time, Resume Builder.
Cons: Underpaid, Hours, Work compared to pay, pay for training.
It's a struggle working for this company especially when it comes to vault personnel at night. You have a lot of responsibility but aren't compensated correctly for it. The work is tough and stressful – more... and I feel like everyone is underpaid. The night shift is typically a set schedule of 3pm to 11pm, Monday-Friday, but never do you see yourself get out at 11 it is always after 11 but the plus side to that is a lot of overtime. Don't expect to have a life in the morning you will most likely be to tired.
A typical day for vault personnel is you are checking in receipts that the driver guards bring in, organize them according to location. Scan all receipts into their proper destination using a computer system and then seal them with their designated number. Load the vehicle with said receipts and transport to a location. Unload at that location, pick up, load again, drive back unload and scan and separate the receipts you received for next day deliveries.
I can't get into much detail, but there is a little more work involved. If you're trying to get into a career in law enforcement this job will get you in the right step as it's a good resume builder toward that career. The management at this company is good, friendly helpful and flexible and the people you work with are like any ordinary people you have worked with in the past. I can not speak about that because everyone is different and everyone has their own opinions. But the co workers are friendly and helpful always.
The only enjoyable part of this job is weekends off the hardest part of this job would be the coin; lifting, moving, loading of these heavy boxes/bags on a daily basis takes a toll on your body and energy.
And one last rant before I end this, Like I said in the beginning a lot of responsibility for such little pay. The amount of work that needs to be done and how careful you must be you don't get paid nearly enough not even close. You deal with customers on a daily basis, you are armed with a gun, vault personnel are technically suppose to have a CDL (Class B) license, you handle and operate multiple vehicles and handle a lot of receipts from different companies in which you are responsible for if it is lost or misplaced.
The company will provide the training if you do not have your Blue Card (Armed Guard Card) but you will pay for the training and all training which could be set up by scheduling payments to be taken from your pay checks. – less

Driver/Guard (Former Employee), New Britain, CT – June 19, 2015
Pros: Easy job
Cons: horrible pay
The job is very easy, and fun as long as your performing your duties correctly, however management is extremely unfair when it comes to personal problems and need a day off, Also do not check up on employees – more... to see if there OK ON THE ROAD! Also for the type of work you have to do with dealing with precious values risking your life 11.00 is ridiculously outrageous it should be against the law for any employer to pay there employees so little as an armed guard especially when the risk is so high. It's like here take all the valuable stuff drive it around 8 to 12 hours a day hope you don't get shot here's your pay check 300 bucks. Don't work here if you don't have to. – less

Driver/Guard (Current Employee), St. Louis, Mo – June 8, 2015
Pros: Hours, benefits, and new friends
Cons: hours, life risk, and pay
Pretty much a good place to work with almost unlimited amount of hours to work. The hours does have its downfall to, sometimes it seems you must work all day and little free time. My manager is actual – more... one of the best bosses ive had, she is laid back and easy to talk to. I enjoy joking with co-workers and getting to meet new people. I least enjoy the long days and the risk im always under, not enough pay for such a risk. – less

Armed Guard (Current Employee), Tinley Park, IL – May 1, 2015
Pros: Out on the road
Cons: terrible hours over worked terrible managment
Long hours usually around 10 hours. The training was ok. The other guards are great people but the management is terrible. The company only cares about the money and not the employees. The only good part is your out on the road and have no one to worry about expect the people out and about at ur stops.
