Driver Guard (Former Employee) –  Sharpsburg, PAOctober 15, 2018
A typical day at work . First of all you have to walk a half mile to punch in from the parking lot, then if you punch one minute late. you will be written up. on the road as a driver is ok it is the co-workers who are stressed mentally and financially so I guess I don't blame them they have to vent somehow any why not the new guy because the pay is an insult for the risk you take with your life everyday.

Average
Driver Guard (Current Employee) –  Grapevine, TXOctober 13, 2018
Your average high turnover job. Every week is last minute posting of work schedule so you don't know if you can plan anything with the family. Management just spends time threatening to fire people and not fixing the problems or preventing them.
Pros
Get to carry a gun.
Cons
Last minute schedules, poor management, trucks beat you to death.

Fast paced and time sensitive
Crew Chief (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHOctober 12, 2018
Everything you do is timed, meeting and hitting deadlines can be stressful but very fulfilling as you complete your routes/tasks.

Very engaging employee relations team, always looking for ways to get employees involved.

very strict and great company
Federal Contractor (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLOctober 9, 2018
fun place to work, coworkers are fun and exciting. starting pay is high. I cannot speak for other branches, but i have worked for two branches in Florida and both branches have excellent mangers that took very good care of their employees. Being a federal contractor is a serious job, because you are their to protect federal employees and their equipment.
Pros
high pay
Cons
no benefits, depending on location management can be very stressful

Great place to be part of
Driver/Guard (Current Employee) –  Beltsville, MDOctober 7, 2018
Receive knowledge of how the bank system works, how valuables are transported and stuff.
It’s a job that people take for granted, there’s a lot of dangers and things that could happen.

Seems Great, Until You Are There
Armed Driver/Guard (Former Employee) –  Columbia, SCOctober 6, 2018
Starts with checking the vehicle, checking money that goes onto the vehicle. You may have to wait on the person you are paired with on the truck to "get ready," which sometimes consists of finishing a conversation.

Personnel/Management extremely unprofessional. It is likely that you will get sexually harassed or overhear a conversation you wished you had not. Regardless of the situation, if you do your job and do it right, most of the personnel and management will dislike you. They want things done fast and they want you to be like everyone else - if you refuse, you become the outcast. Management will not work with you regarding hours and needs. Often called to attempt to switch days when I needed to leave for military requirements and got a phone call to come in on the day I asked for. (I always refused, considering I was berated for even asking).

Some lifting is required, money weighs a great deal, especially coin. This is the absolute hardest part of the job, unless the people are considered (which applies to both the personnel and customers).

Safety protocol is utterly ignored. There are some people who will get on their cellphones while driving the trucks (which are not light vehicles) and there is no repercussion for such actions.

Though many of their advertisements will say it, there is no advancement in this company unless someone retires or dies. People are promoted to their position of least competency, meaning you are likely going to work under someone far less intelligent and capable than you.

The most enjoyable part of the job was likely the few
  more... personnel that could treat things professionally or at least slightly casual enough to avoid stirring up unnecessary drama. When I was left alone to do my job and do it right and everyone did theirs right, it was much better.  less
Pros
Uniform provided. Healthcare, dental, life insurance options.
Cons
Terrible pay for what you do, unprofessionalism, lack of adhesion to safety protocol

Good job, Hours OK.
Driver/ Guard (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIOctober 2, 2018
I did not mind working here, the pay is good and benifiets good. Driving around in traffic takes it toll after 6 months. Becoming the runner is better.

Great job, insulting pay
Driver Guard/Hopper (Former Employee) –  CerritosOctober 1, 2018
The job itself is awesome. Meet or see different people every day on route. Management isn’t bad most of the time. However, there is absolutely ZERO job security. They fire people left and right without a second thought. Most people use this job as a stepping stone or temporary gig until they find something better. The pay is miserable for the kind of job. Risk your life for $14/hr. They deserve at least $18+.
Pros
Good people (workers), fun job once out on route
Cons
Favoritism, low pay, no job security

Horrible Place to work !
Payroll Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Sparks, MDSeptember 27, 2018
Payroll Director was not a good person to work for. Her nervous twitch was not acceptable. She always made condescending and offensive remarks during Election time and often laughed at her comments.

Micromanager could not even describe her.

She talked down to her husband so why should I expect more!
Pros
co workers were nice
Cons
commute, no room for growth.. belittled everyone.

Never
Teller I (Former Employee) –  Cheektowaga, NYSeptember 23, 2018
If you are a hard worker they just expect more and more out of you without giving you anything in return. Treated like a work horse. Upper management bullys you and talk down to you but then will continue to say how valuable you are but won't do anything to keep good workers around. People are allowed to do minimal and never expected to do any more so then work is put on the few good workers constantly. Come workers are great but over all environment has favorites by management.
Pros
Some good people to work with
Cons
Good workers get treated poorly

Stay away
Driver/Guard (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCSeptember 23, 2018
Stay away from this place unless you desperately need a job. Get ready to spend 12+ hours on a truck with little to no A/C. Schedules constantly changing everyday of the week and the turnover rate is absolutely ridiculous.
Pros
None
Cons
Everything

Cliques everywhere
SUPERVISOR (Sorting) (Former Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 22, 2018
You would do well to get as much as you can from this company as long as you are not caught up in the various cliques. Management is only there to follow the leader, there's absolutely no loyalty.

Takes the kind of person
Driver/Guard (Former Employee) –  Richmond, VASeptember 18, 2018
Company was good to work for, as in once you got a handle on the tasks and procedures it was a pretty easy job. Not for the faint of heart as days can be long and unpredictable, and work can be pretty laborious at times. But overall, for a Security professional with some experience under his/her belt already, can be a decent job. Overtime is usually available as well for those seeking some extra hours and $.

Managment and co workers really made it a fun place to work
Imaging Teller (Former Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLSeptember 14, 2018
I would go in the morning. Start scanning in my batches. Take my lunch break, Finish up my checks. Log the in and go home. Management were great people. They listened when you had concerns or needed time off. They helped out when any department was over loaded. I think we really had a great team.
Pros
Hours worked well with my family
Cons
Office was very cold
