horrible management
armed guard,,driver (Former Employee), edmonton abNovember 8, 2014
Pros: really are none anymore
Cons: the whole management team
Schedule changes day to day,, management is too full of themselves,, will let you quit rather than make things right.. numerous people quit in last year,, keep changing shifts to do away with overtime and end up losing workers.
Now there is no guards ,,so much more dangerous..
Never would recommend the place again..

Great people but not a lot of room for advancement
employee (Current Employee), BCSeptember 5, 2014
Good place to work, good environment for those who like variety in their everyday work. Fast paced and requires a mind that is capable of adapting. Very difficult to move up in the company, most advancement opportunities require you to move to different provinces.

Some nice people, lots of weirdoes, worst management.
Armored guard (Current Employee), Winnipeg, MBAugust 12, 2014
Pros: if you have a seniority there is lots of overtime
Cons: low pay, unorganized, hiring dropouts, worst management, lay offs, hard to get full time...
Typical day at work is to come in, look at the schedule to make sure you're not late because it might have changed since you left the day before. Go and talk to supervisor about missing hours on pay check, go do your run without breaks if possible, finish your run, come back, talk to supervisor again about missing hours, look at the schedule because – more... it might had changed again, go home exhausted. Next day do it all over again. No room for advancement, even if you somehow get into management you will have to work 16 hour shifts for under $50,000. No communication between management and employees at all. Hardly any training provided, lack of discipline, not providing basic equipment.... – less

Cons: management only worry about themselves and their bonus
Busy, fast paced.Co-workers are great. Management sucks. They don't talk to each other. They expect you to work whenever they want, very little scheduled hours. The most enjoyable part of the job was leaving!!

Cash Room Clerk
Cash Room Clerk (Former Employee), Dartmouth, NSMay 2, 2013
Pros: good people, excellent atomsphere
Cons: management was a little backwards and hard to understands sometimes
I started working for Brinks In 2009, I had a little girl that was not in daycare and a husband who lost his job due to being laid off. So when i started i learned alot about the aspects of money, being in a security building, having been cleared to work for such a demanding job, i was happy. As the year went on i was trying to do my best with keeping – more... up but with home life, my husband finding a new ft job working almost 50 hours a week and no daycare it was hard so i did end up talking to them and explaining the situation and with hours already being cut back they laid me off in 2010. The business was good, the people were good just management and company background was not the best and once you are in working you realize more and more. I did like working there tho, i took pride in making sure all was right when it came too deliveries and making sure all money added up properly. The hardest part of the job was just knowing how there system was when it came to disbursting the money to different offices, i would have to say the most enjoyable part would have been the co workers, all were down to earth and took me in like there own and helped me learn all that needed to be known about Brinks and how there company worked. – less

Supervisor (Former Employee), West Valley City, UTDecember 4, 2014
Pros: great experience and being depended on.
Cons: working 6 days most weeks.
days were not too typical here anything could happen a machine breaks down or get odd orders but overall I think me and my co workers handled everyday the best we could. Management was iffy in this business I had trained 3 different managers before my departure form the company. I think the most enjoyable part of the job was all the fun times I had – more... with the friends I received from this job. – less

Exciting for the Meticulous and Aware
Messenger (Current Employee), Irondale, ALDecember 3, 2014
Pros: great pay, nice hours
Cons: dangerous, grave responsibility, and very short breaks
Shifts for Messengers usually start around 0600, ends whenever you're done with the route you're assigned. I learned how to work on ATM machines, use safes, firearms, count money at an accelerated rate, and increase my peripheral vision analysis. Management is always calm and collected, usually, and were usually quick to solve issues with work-related – more... and of personal matters. Fellow co-workers usually have some military, law enforcement, or security background. The hardest part of working for Brink's is the adjustment to the hours. You don't get lunch breaks like normal employees in a break room and sometimes can hit 50+ hours with ease per week. You have your meal on the go, in between stops. the most enjoyable part, to me, was a consistent change of scenery. – less

Very low pay and no advancement opportunities
Driver (Former Employee), South Bend, INNovember 26, 2014
No raises, took away overtime and overtime pay and no chance for career advancement. You would work anywhere between 10 hours to 17 hours a day. Management would never answer your phone calls for questions and the trucks were always breaking down.
