When I got hired they made believe that this would be a great company to wrk for, you can move up and become a supervisor, but since I have been there for several months, I'm ready to get out just as fast as I got in. The trucks are in horrible condition. There are no fans or Air conditioning and you report it to the branch manager and nothing happens. – more... They just want u to roast in the trucks and get there job done for them. Im getting out of this company as soon as I can. – less

Armored Guard (Former Employee), Laurel, MD – June 16, 2014
Early start and never know when your done. very difficult to manage a family working here. Management is horrible and probably shouldnt be managing a mcdonalds, never mind a branch that handles millions of dollars. Benefits cost $800 a month for family plan and have huge deductibles so your pay is reduced by almost 300 bucks plus taxes every 2 weeks. – more... constant lies about promotions and transfers. NO AIR CONDITIONING in Summer and NO HEAT in winter inside the trucks. Management will not report this to mechanics to fix and if you refuse a truck they send you home and you loose pay. Safety is also none of their concern because they sit in an office all day and not on the road. Time off requests are only granted to their favorite employees. Cannot get a hold of management on off hours or weekends so if you have a problem your stuck, thats it. – less
Teller (Current Employee), st louis – June 5, 2014
Pros: weekend off
Working at garda you are never bored because you are dealing with a lot of money. At garda I learned how to be very accurate, how amazing it is to work with others. My co-worker are awesome they are all about team work. the hardest part of my job would be trying to balance all the money without error. the most enjoyable is working with my team.
Driver/Messenger (Former Employee), Smyrna, GA – April 7, 2014
At the time I was there it was really scattered and everybody was every where. Needed some structure and new guidance. Union came in and changed a lot of things to what they wanted and started taking money from everyone even if you didn't want their services. That was not good.
Armed Security (Former Employee), Portland, OR – March 25, 2014
Pros: unamred and armed training, weekend supervisor, long hours.
Cons: short breaks
Get to work ten minutes early and load up the armor truck with the money for the route I was on. Drive from one company to the next in a timely matter. We had set times we had to be at each stop and to be able to make it back to Garda to unload the money and load them up in another armored truck that took the money to the banks. Some days I would be – more... scheduled to drive the truck to the bank.
I learned about strict company polices that was in place for our safety due to the work we performed. Learned how to handle situations that could happen during routes and the laws that we had to follow.
Management was great.
Most enjoyable part of the job was when I was the weekend supervisor with my partner and kept track of the trucks on route. – less
Vault Teller (Current Employee), Girard, OH – March 16, 2014
Pros: i'm earning a pay check
Cons: stressful, too fast paced, too much overtime
The hours are long, I have to stand on my feet for 8 hours to up to 15 hours a day. Its fast-paced and stressful to get all the work done in the day it comes in. We recently got a new manager, it is hard to tell how things will go, so far, I'm not impressed. My co-workers and wonderful. I have no issues with the other teller I work with. The hardest – more... part of my job is that I do not get the support from management that I need. The cash room is without one girl and we are short handed, we need some help from our manager, and he doesn't help us like we need. The most enjoyable part of my job is that I get to work with a nice girl. We get along well and work well together. – less
