Poor company
Driver/Courier/ATM Technician (Former Employee) –  Chippewa Falls, WIMay 22, 2018
Management lacks skills to run the branch, there is a lot of conflict between employees, no room for advancement. Routes vary, some days can go longer than 8 hours.
If you are looking for a career this is not the place, this basically looks good on an application.
Pros
lots of travel
Cons
poor management

co workers were great
Processing Teller (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAMay 18, 2018
You never knew what amount of hours or what your paycheck would be because it always changed from week to week. Single people with one income can't live like that.
Pros
fellow co workers
Cons
lack of work

Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Topeka, KSMay 17, 2018
Upper management are not friendly only care about numbers people and their safety are not their priority . In this line of work you need strong upper management . When they closed our branch we were promised our PTO pay and they did not pay us . Lots of games from HR and upper management .

Don't waste your time.
Armed Security Officer (Former Employee) –  NortheastMay 16, 2018
Although you will gain experience as an armed guard basically this is just FEDEX with a gun. You will make your deliveries and pickups, have anywhere from 60-70 of them per day. Impossible to finish. We consistently worked 16+ hours daily, no overtime until 50 hours in, terrible management, terrible vehicles for the most part, no A/C, dirty and unkempt. If you are just starting out prepare for never being home. The only good thing was we didn't have to work weekends.
Very poorly managed and maintained. I would not recommend a position with this company.
Pros
Weekends off
Cons
No breaks, dirty hot trucks, bad management

Lack of support
BRANCH MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXMay 16, 2018
The company has gone through tremendous growth spurts. They have acquired numerous companies to increase their footprint in the US, which has led to many cultural challenges. Bringing so many companies under one umbrella is tough enough but to not have the support to run the operation efficiently is inexcusable. The atmosphere was very stressful for management, supervisors, and hourly employees. The equipment was the biggest opportunity which was the basis for the low moral.
Pros
Never a dull moment, everyday was very challenging.
Cons
Lack of support, the branch was very profitable but very little was reinvested into it, could have made the place a happier place to work, it's the little things that go a long way.

Process and verify bank deposits for commercial customers. It is a very relaxed atmosphere. Employees are offered overtime when available. Employees may be asked to help in other departments if needed.

Uniformed, and strict
Armed Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZMay 12, 2018
this is a dangerous Job and needs to be taken into consideration as such. Security is strictly enforced and guidelines must be followed if you are looking to advance. If prev. Military background, then the structure would fit you work style and ethic.
Pros
Great Pay
Cons
Long Days

The management at garda world is good they have the knowledge to keep things going. The real problem is the turnover rate due to the lack of pay to the potential risk of the job.

Fun place to work if you dont mind the trucks
Armed Driver/Messenger (Current Employee) –  De Pere, WIMay 7, 2018
Great place to work as long as you understand that your priority is to keep yourself safe. Job is not rocket science but needs to be trained. Otherwise the biggest issue depending on area is traffic. If you live in more aggressive cities such as chicago its more dangerous
Pros
Minimum 40 hours paid, Get to see the state as you work, great coworkers
Cons
Trucks dont have radio

Pros

Cons
60-70 hour work week, including saturday & sunday

Analyst (Current Employee) –  Folcroft, PAApril 22, 2018
Being employed with this company through all of the name changes and buy outs, there was a time when people enjoyed coming to work but those days are no longer. Management and leadership has gotten progressively worse, advancement is only for those who are agreeable instead of qualified, and there has been no pay raise in over five years.
