Long days and Little Pay.
Armed Guard (Former Employee), Boston, MAMay 5, 2015
Pros: Good co-workers
Cons: Pay
The work days were long and the overtime pay was the only way employees can live off the hourly wage of 12 dollars an hour. The work environment was committed to getting the job done with as little stress as possible.

Long hours
Armed Guard (Current Employee), Tinley Park, ILMay 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.

Dunbar wasn't a bad place to work,It had its ups and downs as any other job. The most enjoyable part of the job for me was being a hopper, it allowed me to work with different people each day and protect the valuables of others while transporting.

Armored carriers are good jobs to work for.
Armored Truck Driver (Former Employee), BaltimoreMarch 19, 2015
Pros: worked overtime
Working as an armored driver you would pick up and secure clients valuables or currency. Your partner is your first line of defense and is watchful of everything that goes on. Management provides all equipment needed to perform your task. The hardest part of the job is reading the public to avoid any incidents. You get pleasure ensuring the everything is secure at the end of the day, The best part of the job is meeting and greeting good people.

Horrible management crew doest get along meaning no protection
Driver/Guard (Former Employee), Jefferson, LAMarch 10, 2015
Crewmembers do not get along which means you have to watch your own back and the branch manager doesn't manage well at all.

Friendly Co workers
Vault Personnel (Current Employee), San Leandro, CAFebruary 19, 2015
Friendly co worker, although it does need stronger leaders in the afternoon shifts and stronger communication. Employees with constant issues should be sanctioned more efficiently.

Great Job depending on personal preference or necessity.
Vault Attendant/ Armored Car Guard (Current Employee), Kenilworth, NJFebruary 10, 2015
Pros: great team.
Cons: schedule, and pay.
A typical day can be negative or positive depending on how you walk in to work. I have a great manager who exemplary when dealing with staff or day to day issues. I have learned how to deal with various types of people and how to maximize on team effort towards reaching goals by compensating for individual weaknesses. It is a great team environment with great co-workers. The hardest part of the job is the overnight work, and the lack of time spent at home; due to unforeseen circumstances the balance can be lopsided. The most enjoyable part of the job is a job well done. My branch is the best branch in the north-east, if not the whole country.

Not a rewarding job pay to low
Driver Guard (Current Employee), HoustonJanuary 25, 2015
Pros: some prestige with the uniform, gun etc.
Cons: too many to list, hours, pay the list is long....
Needs to pay more for the job being done. These guys put their lives on the line every day for very low wages. The turn over rate is very high causing over worked staff to be tired, disgruntled, and always looking for another job. It is a vicious cycle which does not allow management to do their jobs in an efficient manner. They have to always ask the already tired staff to come in on off days etc.

It will never change until they are staffed properly...that will never happen as long as the pay stays where it is.

Fast pace enviroment no room for mistakes. The staff was okay but management needs some work. There was a lot of drama and people getting away with things that they should not be getting away with.
