I have had the opportunity while working with DHL to progress to my current role & have enjoyed the experience this role has given me. DHL give you opportunities to progress & also gain experience by learning new things with training onsite & offsite which helps you & DHL move forward.
The work place culture is very much focused on Health & Safety & the diversity of its workforce making sure all management / colleagues have the right training to cover all aspects of the roles that need to be carried out. As said DHL holds diversity at the top of its list within its workforce & all colleagues are given the opportunity to progress with the training given.
I have enjoyed my time at DHL & look for a new challenge closer to home.
Frontline Customer Service Advisor (Former Employee) – Castle Donington, Leicestershire – 3 June 2018
DHL is full of advisors from different aspects and diverse cultures. They all understand in different manners. The cafeteria and restaurant provide succulent food from different cuisines like Mexican, Chinese, Indian and Friday Chip Shop. People of all ages range from school leavers to pensioners. Annual reviews at the start of every new year in January are exceptional as they give you the targets you need to reach; plus sometimes even a pay rise like my peers had a rise of £4000. You need to work at DHL CS to feel the difference, to experience it. You need to feel it to believe it.
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.
Very high targets set. Reasonable salary, but they take their pound of flesh for it.
Warehouse Picker and Packer (Former Employee) – Swindon – 9 May 2018
A very physical job and a harsh working environment. This is because you can be working in a freezer. The bar is set very high with the targets and some can't physically cope with it. The management has a lot of jobs worth type and at times could be very demeaning in their manner.
I learned how to use HHT gun and be more responsible. The hardest part of the job was to keep up with my target which was 100 units per hour. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting and working with other people.
Warehouse Assistant (Former Employee) – Wolverhampton, West Midlands – 25 April 2018
A typical day at work was quite fun, everyone got along and would have jokes with each other as well as getting work done. i loved working here as it was always fun. i learnt a lot more on how to work in teams with people, which did learn me a lot. management were very nice and would also ask the staff how everything was going, and were very kind and understanding and got along with everyone. the hardest part of the job was probably wearing the steel toe boots as they were very heavy and used to make my feet ache, because of being on my feet all the time while working.
