Mail Sorter (Former Employee) – Union City, CA – 18 September 2013
Basically the supervisor ran the warehouse while manager sat at home doing nothing. At the SFO terminal, the manager only came in 2 or 3 times a week for 3 to 4 hours. Basically, SFO win first place in production because the supervisor and team made sure everything ran smoothly. If you have a question about the workplace, the manager isn't there to answer your question. There is no question that without the manager, the warehouse does better. If you want to have the good end of the stick such as weekend off or promotion to a higher paying position, you need to suck up to the manager. He will promote you even if your production level is low. I proved to meet the requirement yet his previous favored workers did not. However, I did not get promoted. He even said I will never get promoted, so I told them don't make me do what I'm not paid to do. Low morality in employees. If you make it to 1 year at DHL, it's because finding new job is difficult.
Can't take last 15 min break after 2 hours of work. Horrible management.
