Operations agent/courier (Former Employee) – Exeter – 24 January 2018
Back in the day, it was a fairly cool and prestigious job to be a DHL courier. Expansion and corporate culture has made it slightly less fun than the gung-ho days of the 90s, but they're still the best courier firm to work for by some stretch. Permanent contracts, good benefits and reasonable wages mean it's competitive to get in. But if you do, it's in a different league to the uncaring self-employed gig economy environment of DPD and UK Mail. The key is in the freight - high-value international document and parcels and a strong domestic customer base mean the company is strong. Highly recommended if you enjoy courier work.
Professional environment, opportunities for promotion.
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – Doncaster – 23 January 2018
Every working day was different. The job role included loading and unloading vehicles, putting stock away, picking stock for shipment. also organising the load board and liaising with other sites regarding stock rotation. During my time working at DHL I learnt many skills, including how to drive a VNA man up truck and how to pick items using an electronic scanner. There ware many in-house opportunities for training and development. I took part in some which include First Aid, Fire Marshall and Racking Inspection. I didn't find any particular part of the job difficult but enjoyed the variety involved.
The environment at DHL express is very fast paced, you require a great deal of specific knowledge relating to aviation regulations, dangerous goods and customs. Everything is set to a specific time, when jobs must be completed, regardless of volume. At peak times you will work 10-16 hour days to get the job done, DHL does look after its staff well and you can become like a mini family.
Instills a good work ethic, relaxed attitude, good pay and benefits
Warehouse operative (Current Employee) – Thetford – 23 January 2018
Good company to work for, unfortunately the contract i worked on was for another company that didn't treat us very well but this is no reflection on DHL, a chance at progression was a big thing for me but unfortunately that chance just didn't exist.
kierowca c+e (Former Employee) – Hampshire – 22 January 2018
Przecietny dzien wyglada tak samo trzeba trzymac sie harmonogramu dnia aby wszystko zmiescilo sie w godzinach awizacji. Mozliwosci rozwoju niestety male dzieki kumoterstwo kadry kierowniczej ktora umiala wszystko zmienic na swoj koszt . Czescia najtrudniejsza bylo nie powiedziec kierownikowi zmiany jakim jest dupkiem traktojac innych z gory i olewajac potrzeby zwyklych ludzi a jakze potrzebnych trybow maszyny . Radosc z tego ze wspomniany kierownik chcial mnie wyzucic dyscyplinarnie za rzeczy ktorych nie dokonalem a kierownik pozegnal sie z oczekiwanym awansem
Driver (Former Employee) – Gloucestershire – 21 January 2018
Good company benefits. Look after their employees. Pension sick etc..Management lack leadership. Hide behind procedures . Procedures ignored when pressure mounts. No thought how to control work load always say yes when employees at breaking point. Many work their breaks to keep up with demand. Many good men and women leave.

Ops Agent (Current Employee) – Northampton – 19 January 2018
Overall not a bad place to work, as most places it can be stressful. Staff are great to work with and the management are very good. Most rewarding part of my job is having the ability to make others day a little bit better.
Perfect place to work if you are ok with complicated internal politics and average salary.
IT Analyst (Current Employee) – Daventry – 18 January 2018
Personally I have a good working environment. Office with Air Condition and my own desk. Management: Few incompetent managers with lack of knowledge who doesn't care what people like me, on the bottom of the food chain, doing for this company. Workplace culture: I've noticed that sometimes salary has nothing to do with competences. Peoples who earns a lot, have less knowledge/skills than others who work hard for them. The hardest part of the job: To deal with incompetent people who earns much more than me. The most enjoyable part of the job: A lot of freedom in what I’m doing.

The team I work with is fun, however, some of the management in the workplace show their lack of enthusiasm for their role, which sometimes makes work difficult. However, I love working as part of a team and helping out my colleagues something I often do.
