Driver/Messenger (Current Employee) – Clarksburg, MD – April 4, 2018
I loved this job. I went in knowing it wasn't great and made the most of it. Got to see some cool stuff, meet great people, and even traveled a bit. The trucks are not in the best shape most of the time, and not everyone has a great attitude. If you are willing to make the most of it, the job will be great for you as either a start in a security career, or, at the very least, something in between jobs. But if you start off hating it, you may as well find something else because things don't change often.
I liked most of my managers, and a lot of my coworkers were pretty fun to ride with.
Exciting, easy, lots of experience, and you can get your gun permit through them
Management is a coin-flip, it can be stressful, the trucks are usually in rough shape, and the hours are not always predictable.
Processor (Former Employee) – Queens, NY – July 17, 2018
They promoted persons based on who you knew. They were unethical they asked employees to give them two weeks notice but give none to the employees when they closed the shift. They literally call a few hours before the shift to tell us we would be closing the shift. Offered a deal to change our shift and then call us within an hour again to tell us we no longer have a job. Not a nice place to work I know my manager knew what she was doing but the rest of them need classes in management.

Vault Supervisor (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – July 9, 2018
An average day at Garda World was fast paced, challenging, and great. My duties as a Vault Supervisor were to perform daily operations according to procedures, and policy. Prepared, reviewed, and revised financial reports. Communicated and maintained good relations clients, staff, and management. Troubleshoot computer hardware and software communication errors. Performed opening and closing procedures. Trained new employees.
Armed Courier / Route Lead (Current Employee) – St. Paul, MN – July 5, 2018
This is not a very good place to be if you have a family life. Routes that are driven can sometimes be 12+ hours a day, then management will cut your hours because you work too much. Poor planning that can lead to a list of issues throughout the work day. Not recommended for the faint of heart.
Great job for those first getting into the work force.
Data entry (Former Employee) – Oakland, CA – July 1, 2018
this job was only my second job in my lifetime and it was a lot better than my first job. I believe the pay for this was great! Of course we could always make more money but for the effort of work needed to put in, the pay was worth it.
Account Executive (Former Employee) – Wilmington, DE – July 1, 2018
I was always productive in my job while I was on the job. I could always find something to do when we have slow days. I learned about placing change orders for the customers and look for missing deposits and requesting for back up. The hardest part of the job was that I would have cases go over and I tried to get them resolved in a timely manner.
Driver/Messenger (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – June 23, 2018
First of all this company wages sick, they start you out at minimum wage $12hrs per hour, in (CA) and you carry a lot of money which sucks. People at McDonald's probably make more than Garda. Armor trucks suck, the doors open while driving you have a rope on the door to secure it lol, They make you go on route with no AC and if you break down, you still have to finish your route no matter what. THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT THEIR EMPLOYEES. Next Management have no communication with the messenger or themselves. Next, training, they do not train you at all if you are sechulde on a route and you don't how to service a ATM they would still make you do it and they would say." Here is the instructions don't mess it up or you will get a rite up", doesn't make any sense. Now, if you know what you are doing than this job would be easy. Sometimes they make you still longer and they won't pay you over time after you worked 50hrs per week. It's a good job Experience if you want to advanced in the future.
High Speed Teller (Current Employee) – Wilmington, DE – June 13, 2018
Its like being in high school all over again. You have to be able to ignore disrespect and pettiness from everyone(even upper management). It is not a safe work environment. Fights have been known to happen. And raises are non existent.
