Warehouse Operative/ Team Leader (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 12 June 2018
The job was very mixed for me I worked as a temp for DHL and the pay and holidays were excellent however the job itself was easy but it had points where it was difficult which I welcomed however the way management treated you or what they expected of individuals because of the pay was completely unfair and toxic and towards the end I hated it but the pay had you stuck there.
The culture was cloak and dagger everybody was out to get each other and there was constant backstabbing and the agency's were a joke, they had individuals there for 3 years plus when originally we was only supposed to be temp for 6 months and I was agency for 2 years and then they got rid of me due to lowered production which was lie because 1 week later after they got rid of many long timers they employed loads of new staff to avoid giving out contracts.
OPERATIONS MANAGER (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 16 May 2018
Had the pleasure of leading some great team leaders and supervisors through DHL's automotive sequencing arm at 3 different sites. The guys at shop floor level were some of the best I ever worked with. This however was sadly marred by bullying senior managers, site managers and the old boys club that has existed amongst the rotation of JLR's 3PL providers over the years.
One site in particular is notorious for it's bully boy culture which victimises meant employees unless they 'get on board' with the existing regime. A real shame as it stifled some brilliant minds, ideas and genuinely brilliant teams.

First Assistant (Current Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 18 July 2018
Management really will be the downfall to this company. From small things such as employee queries to being subject to incorrect payments, management always seemed as clueless as the person seeking help from them.
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 5 November 2018
working here is complete trash they are always looking for ways to sack you and mess around with your shift and role in the company along with making you work like a dog and not giving you a chance to even eat lunch with 15 mins brakes takes 10 mins just to walk to the canteen because its too far away from your working station.
Overall it is a exciting and active environment to work in with great people
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 1 January 2018
A typical day at work consisted of collecting and delivering parts to the production line, in doing so you become very familiar of all the parts as well the make and model of the vehicles.
Being that it is a very large place to work there are various different sections with there own managers and team leaders. My personal experience with management has been that they are passionate about what they do and are always willing to help.
i think that the hardest part about the job role is adjusting to the rotational shifts, having to work a different shift every week it takes some getting use to.
The most enjoyable part about the job is being able to drive around to different areas and sections to collect or deliver parts.
Ok to work for but no feed back or communication from managers on performace .
Counterbalance Forklift Driver (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 27 December 2017
Very poor management of personal and very poor communications skills very poor feed back on any jobs, health and safety rules only apply when it suits them, no achievement or pat on the back for doing a good job all in very poor management of personal.
Order picker (Former Employee) – Birmingham, ENG – 16 May 2015
A typical day at work was very organised and I learned a lot how to become quicker and more reliable in my work. The management were very helpful always giving praise for good work in the team briefings and always around to help with any issues raised. My co workers were fantastic and helpful as I was new to the automotive industry. I enjoyed every thing about this job but the hardest part was having to leave because of a fractured hand.
Warehouse worker (Former Employee) – Birmingham, ENG – 25 February 2015
I have been working there as a picker and that taught me how to work in a warehouse, typically I spent most of the day picking orders for online shop and doing other small tasks if managers asked for them. Management was good, helpful and always gave directions on how to do things. Coworkers were really helpful and friendly, from all corners of the world. Hardest part of the job was walking for first week, while I was unaccustomed to it and the most enjoyable part was when I could help inventory while working with computers.
