Director of National Accounts (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – 10 October 2013
At DHL I had a team of Account Managers who were all located in the San Francisco area, so keeping in contact was much easier. I am more of a "selling manager" so on a given day I would be involved in the bigger prospects. My main goal was to network at the Executive level and expand brand awareness at our biggest customers.
A Job that is always evolving in service giving and Customer satisfaction
Owner operator Van Drivers (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 25 February 2017
A place of work that gives a lot of training in its field and management is very serious about Employee Opinion Survey. Employee satisfaction at work place is of paramount importance. Though work requires physical strength and long working hours, it is at the end satisfactory to work with this Company

Account Manager Outside Sales (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 15 June 2016
a lot has changed in the last few years, but it was a typical 7 day work week, with clients calling you on weekends, and all hours of the night. Very stressful position when you manage major accounts spending millions of dollars.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 1 June 2016
DHL express in Brampton presents the impression to their employees that they are professional and care but don't be fooled. The issue begins with their inconsistent and incompetent trainer and management who instead of providing proper answer leave you if you are having an issue with a customer to sink or swim. The sad things they know they have inconsitent training but do nothing to fix it. When you are there you are just a number. Dont be fooledby how much money they have generated you wouldnt believe the unprofessional and gross short cuts the take that hurts the employee and customerTheir management is so unprofessional alot of micromanagement and they are, management, really good liars convincing you that you ve done a great job but turn around and blame you for things out of your control. If you're considering to apply for this run for the hills . Note there was a last review on this site that said the same thing but since I have worked here everything about them being unprofessional is true
As a driver, you will serve DHL customers via a daily route, in your truck or van.
Warehouse Worker and Courier Driver (Current Employee) – Dorval, QC – 4 April 2015
Both on the road as well as at customers’ doors, as a DHL driver, you are the calling card for DHL. This means treating customers with respect, and ensuring that your vehicle is in tip-top shape at all times. As a DHL driver, you thus play an important role, in a job which offers a great deal of freedom but also a lot of responsibility.
Customer service/ on the phone/ 70-80 calls a day.
Brokerage Advisor (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 1 December 2014
Handling 70-80 calls a day on an average. Calls can be regarding invoice copies, breakdown of duties and taxes or genaral complaints. I have learned a great deal of patience and handling difficult customers , escalting important issues. Management is the company is not very motivating due to its being a unionized envioronment so whether you work very hard or just what is required , doesnt matter to them.
Courier Driver (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 5 February 2014
I was always on the road, between 6 to 10 hours a day, delivering parcels. I learned how to manage my time better and how to plan breaks and lunches and when to sacrifice them. I learned when to tell my employer too much freight is an issue and how to manage weather and traffic.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with long drives in between cities in nasty weather. I had to learn to dress for the occasion and plan detours a lot of the time.
The most enjoyable part was how I get to spend so much time alone. Listen to my own music, reflect on the day. It is nice to work and be able to do it on your own sometimes.
Great work place and fun environment and awsome co-workers
Senior Buyer (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 22 March 2013
I really had hard time to decide to leave my company as the work environment is friendly and we organized many fun event during all the year. I will be missing all my co-workers with whom I had very special relationship and specially my Ops Director with whom I really enjoyed working with during all the last 5 years. My job was stressful, I was reponsible of all purchasing, negociations, bid evaluation, as well as the financial reports...) The hardest part was that I had to work every Sundays to submit all my weekly and monthly reporting on a timely manner.
Great pleace to work. Competitive wages and great Management team
Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 7 August 2013
Hours were typically Monday to Friday 8:00-4:30 with optional overtime. I learned all functions of working in the warehouse through the cross training offered. I even received my Forklift license all paid by the company. Co-Workers were easy to deal with and were easy to work with. The job was very enjoyable and I learned alot really quickly thats why i was promoted to Supervisor after only a year of being with the company.
everyday going to work, was a new route, new people to meet and make them happy. You learn how to be more organized, efficient and well coordinated. Going in to work meeting with your co-worker with a smile and great environment. Hardest part is must be very quick know what you need, choosing the quickest route in a short time. everyday going to work delivering packages to happy costumers is the best thing
