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.
I've been on an agency contract for 4 years now and I'm not confident I'm getting a full time DHL contract. There's about 10 other drivers like me who where confident of securing a full time contract when we started but like me see no future in this position.
Dealing with customers calls and updating the multi list every now and again How to operate with a system called gema and closing files that needs to be closing as well as opening files One particular manager was always given advice and helping out when things was out of my control e.g. complaining customers Very friendly environment to work in especially helping out when someone got stuck with something Opening and closing is probably the hardest thing Talking to customers

B35 7RA - Process Leader (Former Employee) – Jaguar castle Bromwich – 19 April 2018
My review is based on the DHL site I worked for but I have heard from friends and family who work for DHL at other sites that it's different there.
The site was very productive but was not a fun place to work, it was none stop slavery from the moment my shift started until the end. Worked almost eight months solid without a weekend off because I felt pressured into doing so and never got a thank you once, although the wage was good you still need to be shown a little appreciation. Was there for ten year's and did nothing but support the company only for them to let me down when I needed help, but like I said it may have just been the site I worked at and other places may be better.
