Operations Administrator (Former Employee) –  Caledon, ON4 April 2017
I go on about the ethics of this company at that specific location of course. But, to be honest it would not affect the way that my time there came to an end due to the telephone game and nay-Sayers.
I left their with much experience and a good grasp on how corporate companies run on a fast-paced mode.
Pros
Ability to learn
Cons
Internal Rumoring

Great place to work with descent benefits in an unionized environment.
Certified International Specialist (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON12 March 2017
Management needs to focus on real solutions instead of band aid solutions. Lots of meetings which are unproductive and does not solve issues. Good job options if you want to move up as hiring is done within the company.
Pros
Unionized enviorment, free lunches during festive holidays
Cons
As usual middle managment are disconnected with real issues.

Good company, great co-workers, long days
Relief Courier (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON27 February 2017
DHL is a great place for anyone just looking to make a decent living. They offer all kinds of work in their warehouse or on the road, you get to meet a lot of people, get to know your customers, hear stories from other employees new and old, and the environment is friendly. It takes a bit of learning at first, like any job, and getting to know city maps comes in very handy. The only real downside is the long hours on the road--some days go up to 12 hours--or the split shifts in their warehouse, as they only need staff in the mornings and evenings, but they pay very well as long as you're up for it. A perfect entry-level job.
Pros
Great pay, great atmosphere
Cons
Long days on the road or split shifts in the warehouse

A Job that is always evolving in service giving and Customer satisfaction
Owner operator Van Drivers (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB25 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

Probably the worst company I have ever worked for
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC30 October 2016
DHL Canada is a complete mess- as the biggest logistics company in the world you sure could not tell by working for the Canadain operations.

Supervisors are horrible, and if a good one is hired they move on pretty quick.

Just don't even bother!

Great multicultural environment, good interactions between all staffs
CUSTOMER SERVICE TEAM LEAD (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON22 October 2016
The management provide all staff the environment and incentive to learn and progress rapidly. Enjoyable and relax atmosphere. A big Mixture of cultures that give us many opportunities to learn and enjoy food and traditions of other countries,and co-workers. Most enjoyable part of the job is when you meet the customer satisfaction and he/she tells you how much he/she is happy about the service. Hardest part is when there is shortage of staff on a particular day and workload increase.
Pros
Employee Appreciation incentives
Cons
Back to back calls
