Good company to work for, but advancement is hard to come by
Key Account Representative (Former Employee), Sterling, VA – February 24, 2014
Pros: world wide assets provide a major resource for any logistics coordinator. great pockets of knowledge, soak them up when found.
Cons: rigid structure, stifles creativity, frowns upon those who take on projects outside of job description
If you want to make a difference in someone's life by moving something quickly from one part of the globe to the other, this is a great place to do it. That warm fuzzy feeling you get when you get a job done is irreplaceable. A typical 8 hour day will have you talking to people around the corner, to around the world, which I always enjoyed. Unfortunately, – more... with it being a global company who has a lot employers, you are replaceable. Not to say that you can't get what you want, just be ready to put on those tap dancing shoes for it. – less
Freedom while on the road, get the job done in yor own way
Delivery Driver (Current Employee), Ontario, CA – July 10, 2014
Pros: being on my own, management allows me to do my job
Cons: no lunches most days, lack of time to complete deliveries and pick ups
No day is really typical. The amount of deliveries and pick ups vary. Traffic on some days are great but sometimes they are horrible. The wifi system which is used to receive picks and download completed deliveries may go down. There are day where everything flows or everything goes wrong. Since I have been at DHL I learned that packaging business is – more... very intricate and sometimes confusing. My co-workers are awesome...especially the three other drivers that service the City of Industry with me. We always help each other during the sort and also on the road. The hardest part of this job is the lack of time...especially when the freight is late in the morning. The most enjoyable part of this job is the freedom. Once your out of that warehouse, there is nothing being on that on your own servicing your current customers and hopefully gaining new ones. – less
Cons: sometimes working hours would be stretched due to seasonal load, otherwise everything ok.
Enjoyed working with DHL, as the work environment is excellent and we continuously were involved in employment engagement programmes, which were very motivating. Learned much in the field of Supply Chain, warehousing & distribution. Top level management's interaction with the employees down the line very personal and a touch of caring. Cooperative & – more... helpful co-workers, There never seemed to be any hardest part in our job at DHL, as each one of us worked as a great team, which in fact was the most enjoyable part working in an organisation like DHL. – less
Productive and fun learning workplace environment.
Casual Packer/Stocker (Former Employee), Brisbane, QLD – July 1, 2014
Cons: early mornings
A typical day at work would be clocking in and putting away my bag and lunch. Greeting everyone with a hello or goodmorning. Small catchups and then off on the grind. During work it is smooth at times hard working and just having small talk with mates and helping each other out.
The hardest part of the job is when there is a rush in of orders and you – more... have to keep calm and focused on every detail and work harder.
The fun part about work is having to work with great company everywhere. – less

* The typical day at work start very early in the morning, moving mail and the sound of the machines begin to say is time to work. * I learned about countries and cities that I didn't knew that they exist at all. * My coworkers are very nice and with good disposition to learn more * The hardest part is when the work becomes slow down, and people start – more... to be fired from their job – less
