Ok, I was looking through the classifieds and I saw an ad for an Armored Service Technician for Loomis Fargo. The ad goes:
$10/hr. Must be flexible and day of the week (40-55 hours)
You will recieve:
*Paid Training*Free Uniforms*Free school for Georgia Weapons Permit*Medical afte 6 months*life, dental and vision after 4 months

Here is a link to their website, I think the job is basically the driver position from what I can tell.
http://www.loomisfargo.com/drivers_1.htm

Does anybody have any experience in this job field and have any comments and/or recommendations? Any help would be appreciated.

Yep, armored car guard.
You go into retail stores and pick up bank deposit and empty/replenish atm's.

As far as security guard positions-not to bad.
Unless you get robbed, then it would suck.

Don't know if it would help or lead to a career.

Nobody's had a job like this or knows anybody else who has?

(sheesh, and I usually talk about other people being impatient with their questions )

boy, nek i dont know. those kinds of jobs seem dangerous with little training and not enough equipment and manpower.

do they supply a vest?

what type of weapon do they supply you? ive seen the security guys around here with .38's!

what area is it in? dangerous area?

i think id call up and talk to a driver or worker....

if you get injured on duty, how long does workman's comp cover you? how is the health insurance?

why not just be a police officer, get paid more and better training?

just kicking around ideas.

$10.00 per hour seems a bit low for the risk of stopping a bullet for a bag of cash. I would also wonder why 6 months until your have health insurance...when the standard is 3.

I would think executive protection, evasive driving trained limo driver or private industrial security would be a better bet.

Night club bouncers get more money than that...

Now I'm speaking completely with na´vetÚ here, but is it really that bad/dangerous of an industry? I don't live in that huge of a city, it's mostly a college town (Athens, GA, University of Georgia).
I guess the best idea would be to apply and talk to them about what training and equipment are provided. The ad doesn't say a whole lot about the job and there's no harm in applying and at least going to talk to them.

Than you, guys, any additional comments will be appreciated.

It's not dangerous until it is.
How often do you hear of armored car guards getting injured?

In my stores, the guards carry automatics and wear vests.
