very productive work place
On job trainer/Shunter Driver (Current Employee), Runcorn, ENGDecember 18, 2014
My typical days work would be to work in a team in a very busy environment were I would work of a loading sheet working out how to present the trailer correctly so that the load is not unsafe. I have learned a lot from my job such as learning that a load has to be contributed across the whole trailer so that drivers would not be prosecuted by vosa. – more... I had a excellent working relationship with all management communicating well and asking questions if I wasn't sure in the tasks I was undertaking. I also had to communicate well with my co-workers to avoid any mistakes been made as we wanted to provide a excellent service to our customers .I would say the hardest part of the job would peak periods as to have to keep a high standard of health and safety even though work load con double. My most enjoyable part of the job would be knowing that you are knowing that you are providing a excellent customer service. – less

It was definitely a teamwork job. Sometimes it was very fast-paced and other times not so much. While working here I enjoyed some good friendships w/ a – more... few co-workers. – less

Warehouse Operative (Former Employee), Sherburn in ElmetDecember 1, 2014
Overall Working for DHL has been a Pleasure even if it was only a temporary placement i would gladly work there again.
Primary tasks Involved were Order Picking and Order Packing, Order Picking Involved using a Scanner Gun and Cart, main tasks of Order picking were scanning the required Units and adding them to the designated Order section of the cart, – more... Order Packing involved scanning the orders and units printing off shipping documents and the shipping Label and carefully putting the scanned Items into bags to be sealed and shipped. However Order Picking and Packing were not the only tasks given, as well as these two tasks, there was Loading and Unloading the Trucks, Loading and Unloading the Elevators,Magnum Stacking,Conveyor Observation and House Keeping. – less

encoder (Former Employee), Forest ParkNovember 20, 2014
Cons: somtimes no breaks
This is a night job, its fast pace, you never know when your clocking out. The staff is wonderful, but under paid for the work we did, the hardest part for most at this job would making production (scan 330 in an hour) that hindered a lot of employees to keep their jobs. Management was awesome and very understanding.
