great learning experience
member of the Cash Logistics Team (Current Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON14 April 2018
I've learned a lot of things working here such as: how to balance money, how to find counterfeit money, how to teach new employees how to do the job, i even learned how to fix the large money counters when they break down or get jammed, so that the company does not have to spend money to call in a technician to come in to fix it.
Pros
a very friendly invironment
Cons
so far away, too long of a commute.

This good job, with decent pay, hard to get Fulltime. However, work culture is pretty good, Brinks is one of the better armoured car companies. The alternatives leave something to be desired.

Negative Culture - poor executive
Employee (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON7 March 2018
The company lacks trustworthy leadership. The senior executive lacks the ability to support mid-level management and truly treats every employee as a number. For years I have believed the US based executive has been posturing Canadian operations for sale by thinning out the support staff, management, and supervisory staff while squeezing every last minute of time from the road employees. Their focus is reduction of workforce.
Pros
Good pay for every level
Cons
negative culture, people do not matter, high pressure

A full time job here could be the last job for a person. Good company. Most full time employees here intend to work until their retirement. Stable and steady business.

Pros
None
Cons
No hours

An opportunity to grow
Sales Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON28 November 2017
A typical day is a fast pace with many task to be completed in a day, especially when RFPs are due. My immediate manager and senior manager are very supportive and caring. They want to see you be successful in life. Our workplace culture encourages development of skills and provides aids to overcome weakness. Hardest part of the job is managing all the various task and adhoc assignments. Best part is knowing your small contribution is represented in the marketplace.
Pros
Work/Life balance
Cons
Limited room to grow

great training
Driver/Gard (ATM/Armored) (Former Employee) –  St Catharines / ON, Hamilton ON27 November 2017
While working at Brinks ,each day could be vastly different depending were your placement was for the day , ie driver , rear guard , cacs load delivery, or ATM service. I had the opportunity to do all the jobs in house and favored ATM service as this job could have more challenging technical calls to repair ATM's
Pros
Good people to work with, great training courses .
Cons
It was quit hard to get full time hrs

Not worth your time.
Armoured Crewman (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB2 October 2017
I thought this would be great job. But was wrong. Management doesnt give two craps about you. They blame everything on employees if something goes wrong, never managements fault. Will lie to your face. Youll be going back and forth from part to full. Usually just before Christmas. Will be working over 40 hours on part time, but you wont get full time because "they can't afford it".
Pros
co-workers are friendly and awesome to work with, Decent work when you are treated fairly but thats only 5% of the time
Cons
Horrible management They dont care, Long hours, Barely any breaks, Treated not well, Something goes wrong within management its your fault, Should be same pay for full and part time because its the same job, Could be lot safer, List could go on

Management very discriminatory!

Brinks has very poor management skills; they treat the part time male employees like dirt with double standards.
I learned that they have no consistency in rating the employees.
Pros
Flexibility for part timers!
Cons
No benefits and harsh management!

I enjoyed my time with Brinks
Armed Guard (Former Employee) –  Dartmouth, NS7 May 2017
Receive parcels, divide them into order to be delivered through the province,in a timely manner.To handle all needs of our customer,with accurate deliveries and pick ups

Brinks Canada,seems to go through a great deal of management staff,therefore they have there own style and learning curve.This has proved difficult at timer over the years.

Security,and accuracy of the job and meeting all security regulations

without a doubt meeting all the people and forming the friendships
Pros
loving the people
Cons
dealing with employees who think the world ows them something

Current Employee: Easy job, Not a Career
Armed Guard (Current Employee) –  St. John's, NL2 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.
Pros
easy work and most co workers are good to work with
Cons
can only enter as part time and pay and benifits are unfair compared to full time employees
