After years of employment at Dunbar i would recommend that everyone stay away, unless you like being treated like a # or someone without a brain, management is horrible from top to bottom, you will not be treated fairly.
Driver/Guard (Former Employee) – Bridgeport, CT – August 12, 2018
I worked there for about three months. They helped me get my class 1 (blue card). They take it out of your paycheck later on. The coworkers were great and the days werent that long. We began around 7:30 and came back at about 3pm sometimes 4pm or 5pm . It all depends on how fast you move as a team. The only downside of this job is the pay. At $13.00 an hour for the risks you take. Its not worth it. But yes. You get to wear body armor and get to qualify and use your personal firearm. Management was great believe it or not.
Get to use your own firearm, great team, 6-8 hour work days
Teller/Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – San Leandro, CA – August 11, 2018
The Branch Manager is one of the good ones on the CVS side. Raises are not the greatest. Be prepared to work hard and not be appreciated by the company which has now been sold to Brinks. Working with cash is stressful. Some of the higher management do not know how to speak to employees on a professional level. HQ does not keep anything confidential but instead gossips, very unprofessional. Sometimes it feels like high school.
Pay not the greatest, feels like you're in a prison
Air Courier, Part Time (Former Employee) – Dallas-Fort Worth, TX – August 5, 2018
My job was simply escort for shipped printed matter from the Bureau of Engraving and Printing to various cities across the U.S. I would transfer the packages to armored transport and return the same day two or three times a week. There were instances when problems arose that required critical response and innovative solutions but the company expected them to be handled by the courier without any major upset. Security required the shipped material to be within our control at all times and to be accountable for any deviations. The immediate supervisors were all very helpful and gave us all that we needed to do our jobs with all the contacts at the receiving level.
Lots of free time to read on the airlines.
Starting times as early as 2:00 AM to leave home, and returns often at midnight or later.
Driver/Guard (Former Employee) – Bethlehem, PA – July 31, 2018
Good place to work, with good managers and flexible scheduling. But, no career advancement opportunities, and very little pay advancement. Some benefits are provided, but not enough to help with major medical procedures.
Driver Guard (Current Employee) – Vernon, CA – July 25, 2018
the job is ok, i guess. the pay sucks to be honest, in my opinion for the type of job we do we should get pay more. A cop once told me (i wouldn't want your job) you guys get pay "WAY" less than we do and your guys job is "WAY" more dangerous.
Driver/Guard (Current Employee) – San Leandro, CA – July 23, 2018
Dunbar Armored is going through a merger right now with another armored company, so things have been a little hectic and uneasy in the workplace. The branch does not have a branch manager as well, so everything is disorganized.
Driver/Guard (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – July 9, 2018
The job itself wasn't bad. Too many "bad apples" were not written up/fired, which negatively impacted the shop as a whole. Morale suffered greatly because of this. I enjoyed working with the professional employees as they proved to be instrumental in training and provided an overall good work experience. I learned to adapt to individual personalities to meet goals and get the job done.
Good place to learn new job.
Hostile/chaotic work environment at times due to unprofessional behavior from employees.
Family Owned Company that made Employees feel like part of family
Billing Assistant (Current Employee) – Hunt Valley, MD – July 4, 2018
Great company to work for. Gave you opportunities to advance and be your own person. A place that believed in wellness and health. Gave us incentives to make us healthier. Unfortunately, Dunbar has been bought out by Brinks not sure what the new company will offer.
Vault Personnel/Safety Officer (Former Employee) – San Leandro, CA – July 4, 2018
As a safety officer it is a fulfilling occupation to have. Making sure all drivers are working as safely as possible in the branch as well as on the road. The work culture varies; it can be stressful because there is always a target on your back as a armored guard and yet it is nice to know that someone always has your back.
