Loading and Stocking
NOTE: This is DHL-Bridgestone(Tires) not the courier side My time at DHL has been very cool to say the most. The environment that management and the supervisors have created have been a fairly great overall experience and personally one of the best(as I’ve worked in a lot of warehouses). There were times where I was sick and I didn’t feel like my job was at stake, they have something called “labor share” which they implore you to visit other sites to see how they ran and possibly join as opportunities open up. There’s opportunities to learn new machines and help out in different ways. DHL has a very open dialogue and communication with its workers which I respect. Let’s say DHL Bridgestone isn’t the right fit for you then you can go on “StayWITHDHL” to find a new DHL to be with, so this isn’t the end all be all. The culture is great, as they do have puzzles, crosswords, golfing and other social outing that they do. Also they’re pretty big on safety especially since we deal with ya know…tires and the place is very clean so that’s a plus in my books. Everyone is cool except for a few apples but nonetheless DHL is a solid place The CONS: 1)The pay is your standard machine operator pay(but overtime is available….sometimes) 2) Within the entire 8 hours, you only get TWO breaks. Which is a 20 min & 10 3)On these breaks you cannot leave the property, because they are paying for your entire 8 hrs so you must have skip the dishes or Uber eats 4) inconsistent overtime Overall DHL is a good place to work at , they do make you feel “seen” and do value your opinion as they also conduct surveys on how your work place is and that is rare. They almost do what they can to keep you. Especially if you’re a good worker. Personally I give it a 8/10
Awesome job! Awesome pay! Awesome management. You will get lots of work even as a casual worker. Long hours and some difficult deliveries. They train thoroughly and with patience. Lots of support and help from all!
The company treats you well and you need to have thick skin to deal with frustration and stressful calls. There’s no growth opportunities so if you look to advance in the company, I recommend you look elsewhere because you cant get to any senior level management but only advance in customer service
Impressive work culture, work-life balance, flexibility in timing, supportive management, very helpful and hardworking people. Pay and benefits was average.
It's a good job. It's alot of work and you need to be in good physical shape. Lots of things to do all the time. The salary is about the same as other places.
