    I have been working at Brink's, Incorporated full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There is a lot of pros with this company. The people I have worked with became a family to me. The branch managers Mark Rose and Clarence are like father figure roles even though they are managers. This company gives you top of the line equipment. They issue you bullet-resistant vest, weapons and duty rig. Not a lot of companies do that In my opinion is which why I recommend this company. Brinks is the most paid company. With paying there messengers 14.23 while Dunbar gets paid 11.00 Garda, and Loomis gets paid 13.00. I'm a driver and a messenger and I love to drive the new Armored drone its awesome. With all the jobs I have I look at this as a blessing, because its just not your typical security job were you stand a post or set at a desk looking at monitors, which it is a fail waiting to happen because I fall asleep very easily and we've all done it whoever worked security jobs like I did.To be honest I hate sitting and feeling trapped in a office. This company teaches you to protect your own while other companies tell you to drive off during a robbery. We have radios which allows us to stay in constant communication while on route. All together IN MY OPINION is a good company. I'm also a workaholic so working 15 hours every day don't bother me. Because in the end my paychecks make up good for it.

    Cons

    When you get hired or if you haven't herd yet. You will only be granted 5 hours a week overtime. Which in two weeks adds up to 10 hours and then go back to straight time. I get tired of people complaining about this. Mostly the old timers because they are use to making a lot of money. It is hard to get in contact with dispatch but when they radio for you they complain why you didn't answer 5 min ago. Maybe because I was driving is why I didn't awnser. This company is really how you make of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get organized with dispatch. It will make our routes go so much smoother.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Brink's, Incorporated.

    Interview Details

    Takes 4 weeks to get on board. Hiring folks are a little deceiving. It is not their fault, they don't know what goes on in the other side of the business. The nightmare begins once through training. You could easily be blind-sided if you are not prepared for it.
