Working for an armored car company is a very interesting job. The job itself was pretty easy, but not it's not for everyone.

Management was a joke. lied about job description. People who were training you were an embarrasment to the company. never had any supplies ,no paper to make copies,no jet scans. no ventilation in the building.First week worked 48 hours because people training you could not balance.

A good job
Driver/Hopper (Former Employee), Sandston, VAOctober 6, 2012
A typical work day was driving to different locations, dropping off and picking up bags of money. Safety was the number one key to a successful day. Counting the bags and making sure that everything was delivered in a timely manner and correct.

A job's a job, but this one should be a stepping stone
Armored Truck Driver/Messenger (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAJuly 30, 2012
Pros: paid lunch, your personal permits are paid for by the company.
Cons: this place does not get rid of the special individuals that make your day oh so fun.
I've been working here for 4 yrs now. The job is fairly easy; pick up cash and sell it to our vault, or you deliver money. Just now that the company is going full corp, they are pinching every penny they can. This meaning they rush you to finish your run within 8 hrs. Not complaining, I'm just stating the facts. You have have a long run, but it boils – more... down to how you and your partner mix. This makes or breaks your day and I can say at least 70 percent of the drivers/messengers are good to go. Other than that, it's going to be a long day. – less

Teller and MPS Operator (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PAJuly 5, 2012
Cons: shortbreaks
A typical day working at Garda was always interesting. I say interesting cause things may have changed day by day. I have learned how to count in bulk, fan and weigh money that were already strapped as well as spot counterfeit bills. Management was excellent and hands on as far as if we were behind they were quick to hop on to help us out. The co-workers – more... I had there were awesome always wiling to share ways on how to get your numbers up (deposits processed per hour) The hardest part I would say was the hardest was being alone in a room and not talking to anyone for eight plus hours. The most enjoyable part was being apart of a team. – less

Short hours, extremely poor security habits, poor equipment, use people
Vault Technician (Former Employee), Phoenix, Arizona (7th Street and north of I-17August 30, 2011
Cons: management points fingers at overs
Extremely Poor security habits like being locked between doors, and no one around to let you pass threw the doors. They would leave to go to lunch. They make rules the management don't follow, if they have a class or a meeting; they expect you to stand outside on your lunch break. In Arizona that makes lunch in the summer hard on you. Then go back to – more... work to stand the rest of the day. If they lose accounts they send you home to save money, which leave you short for the week. They have no safety rules in place. Their time clock is off, so they take away minutes you actual worked. If someone needs to go on vacation, they will hire someone to fill to take that person place, and then firer them. When then should of given several people the over time to cover the time off. Poor Equipment to handle large sums of money. – less
