Teller (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NYJanuary 29, 2016
First the pay is poor for the amount of money I handled. Their is also a lot of responsibility for the pay. After working for a few years, some of our incentives were taken away from us never to return. Then, we got a new bank it was closed. A good handful of the employees from that bank came on board. It soon got out they were making (much more) than the people that were already there. We were told they are working on something for us (money) and never got a raise.
Many, as well as myself, felt they were not treated well. Some of the management is very poor. Their seemed to be some other shady things going on too at this branch too. A manager was fired then another person soon took her place. Management claims a job posting was up for the position. However, it was only for a few days. Many feel the person that took the position, blew the fired person in for an issue to take her job.
In my 8.5 years I saw a lot of turnaround. This is not only in the cash vault but on the armored side as well. Part of its the pay. Part of it is management and upper management. Since I have left, the large account I spoke of has gone to another cash vault service. I liked the work but not the bologna and the way we were poorly treated. I feel they lost a good worker while the poor was are still there.
Pros
Working behind closed doors (no customer interaction). Hours were great!
Cons
management poor, pay, not sensitive to employees feelings/needs.

You have to like the work environment .
Driver/Guard (Former Employee) –  San Leandro, CAJanuary 7, 2016
This job is for you if you don't want to be stuck in a desk job. You would be in an armored vehicle all day going in and out with some moderate or a lot of heavy lifting of coins.
You get to meet a lot of new people and get to know different cities. The job is risky and you sometimes have to deal with rude customers but who doesn't?
Gotta like your partner because you will know each other's lives real well working long shifts together.
This job is great if you like being out and about and like the element of danger.
Pros
Paid lunch, no supervisor breathing down your neck, not stuck in a desk job, quarterly bonuses.
Cons
Management isn't very good at managing, easy to get fired with accidents or missing packages, sometimes have to pick up lazy people's slack

not good place to advance
Armed Guard (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXDecember 21, 2015
not valued as an employee nor payed enough to be putting life at risk and not good benefits at all. the pay isn't worth the type of work you have to do, you will drive for almost 15 hours and with no breaks or time after your shift.
Pros
none
Cons
too many.

They are okay. Not a bad company but not the best too. Love how they give free food on Friday if we all do good. Hardest about the job is driving non stop.
