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 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.
good people, excellent atomsphere
management was a little backwards and hard to understands sometimes

Armed Guard (Current Employee) – St. John's, NL – 2 May 2017
the work is enjoyable, dont expect to become full time right away when you start or any time soon afterward. There are also no benifits offered for anyone classified as part time employees and you get paid less than full time employees even though you are expected to do the same work. Management is terrible.
easy work and most co workers are good to work with
can only enter as part time and pay and benifits are unfair compared to full time employees
Accounts Payable Assistant (Co-op) (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 26 April 2017
I was a co-op student being trained as an accounts payable assistant. I learned many of the modules in the PeopleSoft software and was able to apply what I learned in the live system. Management was very focused on the job at hand and were very friendly.

Messenger (Current Employee) – Prince George, BC – 11 July 2016
I have only been employed here for approximately 10 months, but overall it's been an amazing place to work. The employees are friendly and welcoming, the management is great, and everyone is helpful any time I need it. It's more of a family atmosphere than a workplace.
Great hours (works around schedule), professional management
Sr Director, Information Technology (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 16 June 2016
As a US owned subsidiary, a challenging work environment, managing communication across four organizational levels with constantly changing priorities and initiatives. The financial services Brinks provides have been commoditized putting continual pressure on margins and operating costs. Brinks as an organization is burdened with significant multi-level administrative policies and procedures greatly encumbering their ability to respond to customer and market place changes.
Overall physical work environment
lack of agility to manage changes required to meet market place demands
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) – Prince George, BC – 10 June 2016
This company is horrible, from the second-in-command down. Its employees are bitter and negative and don't trust anything announced by upper management. Upper management is completely detached from daily operations, and middle-management falsifies reports to thwart embarrassment on weekly teleconferences. Guards, messengers and drivers are gun-happy and haven't figured out yet that they have no police authority. If you are unlucky enough to be a customer of Brink's, your valuables are at-risk. Choose another messenger service.
Vice President (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 2 November 2015
The Canadian management team worked well together and created good financial results and an excellent corporate culture. Unfortunately, a lack of vision from the global senior management left a gap in the future and prevented the reinvention of a business in decline.
No innovation and reinventing of the brand to be relevant to the 21st century
