Don’t bother
Cash in Transit Driver (Former Employee) –  Leicester, Leicestershire15 September 2018
Rate of pay is good but you break your back for it.. literally!
Very active job that’ll keep you fit and you’ll be lucky to do a minimum of a 12 hour day and with no set time to finish!
Management is very poor they couldn’t careless about the drivers and just sit in there office doing nothing all day.
Vans are taped together with duct tape and regularly break down, in hot weather quite often drivers are sent out in vans with no air-conditioning.
Place is a joke, don’t bother!!
Pros
Work mates
Cons
Poor management

Poor support, poor planning, poor work/life balance
Driver (Current Employee) –  Norwich, Norfolk22 July 2018
Great job for keeping active, however; some expectations are too high for operatives.

Planning from Management Team is very last minute and not well thought through.

Trying to run a service with the smallest budget.

Money good, but not worth the agro that goes with it.
Pros
Paid for breaks
Cons
Long hours, very poor communication

Poor equipment
Cash in Transit Driver (Current Employee) –  Birmingham, West Midlands7 March 2018
The vans are hopeless, if you go a week without breaking down its an achievement, equipment is hopeless. Poor management. The only good thing is the other drivers, most days are between 10-12hrs but it's a dying trade with all the bank closures. Greedy Shareholders won't release money for new vans/equipment only going to get worse.
Pros
Paid lunch breaks
Cons
Dying trade, getting your head kicked in for £11.50 an hour

Flexible
Driver (Current Employee) –  London6 January 2017
Working with this company can be very fun at times, challenging, pressuring and also risky. Customer focus is very important, team work and time keeping is also important.

Working with one of the world biggest security company is a privilege, the best part about this job is that you have to be flexible and motivated, and always ready to work as part of a team.
Pros
No
Cons
Max 12 hours

Useless penny pinching management putting profit before customers
Driver (Current Employee) –  North West15 May 2016
A poor company to work for where generally management in key positions have gained employment through who they know rather than what they know. The good guys that have climbed the ladder with experience usually get shot down and struggle to make a difference.

A good set of boys and girls who do the real graft are undervalued with too much in expectations from management. Struggle with poorly maintained equipment. Pay isnt too bad but benefits have been cut, you can get a good pay packet but be prepared to put in very unsociable hours to get this.

Job security is touch and go as everything seems to be 'gross misconduct' even for the slightest mistake. Staff at lower levels work really hard to keep customers on side and this is reflected with customers showing real respect towards us for the effort we put in and understand that our management is substandard. Has the potential to be a great job with a great future but is let down by those at the top. Morale amongst the staff is very low and could be improved if staff would be listened to but any suggestions usually falls on deaf ears
Pros
Treated with great respect by customers, pay not too bad
Cons
Poor management, long unsociable hours, little social or family time

A very professional company with high standards and work practices due to the nature of the job, as such information about the position I held at the company is not advised to be disclosed. However I did learn a great deal from the company that has helped me in life.
