Local service varies across the country.
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIFebruary 14, 2019
Corporate HQ has different rules than the field. Most HQ people are unaware of what goes on at the branch level. I love sales and enjoyed the long term relationships with customers. I was able to achieve one of the highest retention rates for customers. Loved the local branch team. Drivers on the trucks are paid way to low for the job required and they are not flexible with drivers, only salary people. Overall enjoyed working for this company. Was recently purchased by Brinks, Inc. so it will be an all new company to work for.
Pros
Reliable and stable company
Cons
Inflexible with extra vacation days

Work was hard...
Teller (Former Employee) –  Chicago, IL 60651February 8, 2019
The work was very physically demanding, if you didnt finish the work when your shift was done, you were required to stay until it was finished. For this job you had to pay very very close attention to detail or else you had to do it over again.
Pros
paid weekly
Cons
very demanding work

Poor Management, and not employee friendly.
Armed Guard (Current Employee) –  Plano, TXFebruary 7, 2019
The atmosphere in the work place was quite poor. Management was not understanding for employees with children. The pay is poor as well. After a full year of working for the company, a ten cent raise was all that was given to employees.

Just another job...
Driver/Armed Guard (Former Employee) –  Kenilworth, NJJanuary 23, 2019
Manager was terrible don’t care about their employees and they don’t accommodate you if you need it they tell you to come in at 7:30am and you don’t even hit the road until 8:45-8:55am. Some of their trucks are trash And if you can don’t wait until you hit your 90 day probation to receive your bulletproof vest and firearm if you are able to get it before the 90 days do so because anything can happen when you putting your Life on the Line for them. As far as Co-Workers they cool everybody gets along.

Did not like it
Cash Vault Service Associate (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJanuary 23, 2019
It's very competive. It can become very challenging the first week but you have to maintain an average score where once a week everybody review where your at, which to me I felt as If that was very discouraging but overall we worked together to get the workload down.

Unsafe work practices and no body armor is provided for safety u have to buy your own or just work without one.
ARMED GUARD (Current Employee) –  Beltsville, MDJanuary 22, 2019
In that industry, I was surprised that they will give you a gun but no body armor. You have to purchase your own body armor and it may or may not come. I ordered body armor and never received it after 3 months and never was reimburse for the cost.

Great place
Driver Guard (Current Employee) –  Doral, FLJanuary 22, 2019
Every job has its corks right ? I definitely think we should be paid more for the job we do. It is dangerous and a normal.morning could have a very bad ending. However, management is very involved, they are always on the floor with the crew. Everyone is friendly. I am a female and there aren't very many the testosterone is high.

Armored Driver/Guard (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJanuary 21, 2019
The hardest part about the job was the stressful working conditions, the unpredictable working hours, and the constant threat of being a moving target.

It was just so stressful working at Dunbar.
CASH VAULT TELLER (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJanuary 17, 2019

Pros
Working as a teller.
Cons
Stressful environment

not enough pay and security risks
Driver/Guard (Former Employee) –  MarylandDecember 30, 2018
The company does not pay enough considering the nature of the employment. Have not worked there in years, but the salary is not a livable wage and there are security risks.

Great Place to work
Driver/Guard (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLDecember 27, 2018
Undoubtedly one the best security company anyone can hope to work for. They offer to get your G License if you don't have one, they provide with all the equipment you need to protect yourself. The pay may seem small at first but after a week on the job your basicially look at $900- $1000.
Pros
Great pay, good benefits, family like environment
Cons
Very Long Hours
