Awful
Messenger/Driver (Former Employee) –  Durham, NCJune 26, 2017
Terrible job conditions, long hours, trucks are always breaking no A/C. Some days you would be working up to 15 hours, you can expect a 60 hour work week easily.
Pros
None
Cons
pay, work-life balance, no room to move up

A place that doesn't pay enough to risk your life for.
Driver/Messenger (Current Employee) –  Runnemede, NJJune 26, 2017
Garda world is a company that needs bodies to work. It's not a career type of place. It's just another job. Yes, you need a bullet proof vest & gun to work for the company but you're basically driving around millions of dollars for $13hr with the risk of people trying to rob you. The trucks provide are also in bad enough condition where some might think to themselves, "I can take it."
Pros
You'll be schedule based off your availability
Cons
Pay, benefits

Not a good place to work
Driver/Messenger (Former Employee) –  Modesto, CAJune 21, 2017
A day required picking up and making deliveries of customer's liabilities. I learned to be very aware of my surroundings over the 10+ years that I spent there. The immediate management was good however top level management did not ensure employee safety. The hardest part of the job was the sub-par conditions of the trucks we spent all day in. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people you interact with on a daily basis.
Pros
Employed for a long time
Cons
Trucks in dire need of repair

It was a good job, I was an employee who followed the rules
Crew Leader (Former Employee) –  Denver, COJune 17, 2017
I enjoyed working there, the only issue I had was with the new manager because he made it impossible to make every stop due to time constraints. I tried very hard to make my stops.

Garda
Crew Leader (Former Employee) –  Islandia, NYJune 14, 2017
Garda is a larger currency transport company. The hours are long and the risk vs reward is very low. The employees I worked with were all good people and my manager was an amazing person but the company itself doesn't seem to care about compensating their employees for the risk of the industry

A job opportunity to be able to support my family.
Armored Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLJune 13, 2017
Typical day completing route schedule. Learned to be alert, serve and protect. Management poor, every year a different manager. Difficult getting someone on the line for support. Work place was normal. Hardest part of job was the danger of being assaulted. Making it back home safe after a hard day was most enjoyable.
Cons
Not getting paid time in a half after 40 hours.

Not a good place to work
Processing Teller (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJune 8, 2017
The management team needs improvement. Some managers are unprofessional. They overwork people for low wages and expect everything done in a timely manner even if people call out. People are expected to work extra when people call out. We have been expecting raises since last year. Work flow is unpredictable due to trucks coming in late sometimes.
Pros
free donuts instead of raises
Cons
everything

Great people to work with except the lying managers
Driver/Messenger (Former Employee) –  Fresno, CAJune 1, 2017
The trucks always break down , managers send you on the road with trucks with no ac and flat tires also the doors pop open out of nowhere. Bad management liers . Promise to many things and come thru with 1 percent out of one hundred. They work you to the edge. management expects you to run drive fast . Never satisfied. Your just a number at garda fresno not an employee. Company doesn't pay overtime or breaks. Be ready to be In A truck that reaches 125 degrees inside. At the end of the day is all business for the managers . If you have an accident because of a bad truck , it will still be your fault. I work in a post office love it here . Garda fresno managers required too much from its employees. Bad trucks no ac no good management.
Pros
Good coworkers other than the managers to work with
Cons
Managers lie to you a lot treat you like kindergarten kids

Great place to work, depends on which branch
Armed Guard/Armored Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Lafayette, LAMay 31, 2017
Great place to work depending on the branch managers. The trucks do break down and are hot in the summer, but there's always easy hours to be made. Management where i worked really took care of us and treated us like a family.

Strictly productive
Vault Clerk Teller (Former Employee) –  Broadview, ILMay 23, 2017
A typical day at work can be overwhelming. I did learn how stores and banks deal with there income using a third party source.Management don't care about nothing but the job itself. The workplace culture is fair. the hardest part of the job is dealing with money, you have to be very careful when it comes down to transferring the money and sending it out.
