Account Manager Outside Sales (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC15 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.

Operations Manager/General Manager (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON12 June 2016
Exel gave me a lot of opportunity to learn and advance my career. Over time the operations phylosophy has changed and the operations have gone from a lean mean operation that treated associates and supplier fairly but demanded quality services to an operation that is multi layered with additional FAT and has little or no accountability.
Pros
Lots of opportunity if you were willing to commit.

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON1 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

Packer (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON22 May 2016
A typical day at Excel is filled with non-stop hard work. I learned how to work at a fast pace due to the fact that I was working on a assembly line. The hardest part of the job was most definitely keeping up with the pace.

Pros
Close to A&W

Long Hours

Sales - International Lead Generation Specialist (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON19 April 2016
A typical day at work involves: Making cold calls to businesses, calling warm leads. Following up with leads, emails and voicemail. We have daily targets to reach 90 calls and 10 Leads that are qualified.

At my time working at DHL Express, I have gained some great transferable sales skills. Have become very competitive with reaching sales goals. I have gained cold calling skills, great communication skills, and customer service skills.

The environment is great: Work hard, play hard. We get rewarded for reaching our sales targets.

Company has a great "First time buyers campaign" . Sales incentive make a great way to reach targets,
Pros
Commission, Great team.

easy work, poor management
Reciever (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB7 February 2016
The work was easy if you are capable of lifting heavy items, and the work was consistent. The people were from allover the world and got along well.

The management was not the best at planing, or keeping everyone doing their jobs. Sometimes seemed like they didn't much care what their employees were doing. But they were always easy to talk to and get along with, and I believe most of their problems stem from lack of experience.
Pros
easy work, regular overtime
Cons
poorly managed

Team Leader - Customer Care (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON3 February 2016
Great People to work with
Very Friendly Coworkers and Management
Typical Day involves interactions with customers and liaising with the network towards locating shipments and resolving customer complaints
Hardest part of the job - When you are helpless and have to say No to a customer.
Being Productive - You get to learn something new everyday if you are willing
The more you give; the more you get back is what I've found.
