Messenger (Former Employee), Altoona, PA – June 30, 2014
Cons: no overtime, max of 5hrs a week, even thought you are worked well over 60 at least
I learned a great deal of ethic and responsibility and dedication here. Most of my co-workers became good friends at work as well as there for your outside of the workplace. The only enjoyable part of the job was my co-workers trying to keep spirits high/light and the customers we serviced were very pleasant and understanding and very greatful when – more... you went the extra mile. The work load was heavy to start, physically but doable of course; however as time progressed we steadily lost a great number of employees including the branch supervisor due to the continually fading work conditions. Being in a medal box with absolutely no flowing air or a/c takes a tool when loading so much weight daily; only because once broke the company did not see fit to spend the extra funds to replace any parts, just enough to get it running. Not very safe in such a high risk job. no work day is less then 8hrs, most are at least 10 and upwards of 12-16 a day 5-6days a week. The overtime was also taken as of January 1, 2014. 1year with the company and I have watched over 14 employees come and go, most over stress and heavy work weeks. – less
Driver (Current Employee), South Bend, IN – June 25, 2014
Pros: coworkers, fun job.
Cons: pay, management, benefits, random hours.
Brinks only pays 5 hours overtime per week regardless of hours. They found a loophole with DOT and it's being used to outrite rob employees. You could work anywhere from 8-17 hours in a day and you never know when you will be done.

Pros: zero pros
This place is terrible!!! No ot, terrible pay, terrible management, promises broke, no raises, unless u quit n they want u back n they offer u a dollar raise.. crazy right... gi joes wannabes , dont work here trust me ubless they start paying more!
I worked here in November 2012 as the Currency room supervisor. The staff had their own way of doing things and management didn't get informed. Management tried to change things too fast without standing back and seeing the big picture which led to a few employees leaving the company. I would not go back to this company in a million years and even if – more... you know what froze over. – less
Account Manager (Former Employee), Coppell, TX – June 16, 2014
This was an 8:00 to 5:00 job. I learned the the money flow process. The company was poorly managed with poor vission. I enjoyed my co-workers. The mos difficult part of the job was the day to day changes in goals. I enjoyed the hunt for big deals.

Cons: management, no reward programs, training, management..
I worked for this company for 6 months. Started off okay, but the training and work direction of new employees is poor. Management sits in office all day and talk on phone, until something comes up missing. Most of the co-workers are okay but there are a few select that think they run the place, due to the fact that management, supervisors, have "head – more... in the sand" majority of the time and give these people unfair privilages then the rest of the crew.
The pay is alright, the hours are a nightmare. If you have a social life... forget about it! you will be required to stay and work until every thing is completed, oh unless you are one of the privilaged!!
Management will be the down fall of this particular facility, if they don't come out of their holes and do some work for a change!! – less
