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.

Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) – Stoke-on-Trent – 7 March 2018
Virtually impossible to get a holiday when you want it as the holiday booking system sucks. FLM's that are only interested in making themselves look good and stabbing you in the back. Terrible shift pattern. Agency everywhere that can hardly speak English. Need i go on?

Stock Controller (Former Employee) – Cumbernauld – 1 March 2018
Whilst I enjoyed my time in DHL Excel it was ruined by the fact I was let go after being told in the morning my temporary contract would likely be picked up permanently only to be told later in the afternoon they were getting rid of us and keeping all the cheaper to pay agency workers instead. I walked out when I was told this and did not finish my shift that day.
Managers were all bickering like school girls behind one anothers backs and it didn't seem the department I was in was run by good people.
Weekly pay(at the time), decent money and breaks, time off was good
Poor management, lied to staff, prefer cheaper paid staff to hardworkers
Good place to work but a lot of racism and discrimination...
Controls Administrator (Former Employee) – East – 28 February 2018
Good place to work but a lot of racism and discrimination between the workers. The white people are more likely to get promoted into good positions than blacks and Asians. You will only get far if you work extra harder than a white person and take a lot of disrespect from co-workers on top of that.
Cargo Operator (Former Employee) – Deptford, Greater London – 28 February 2018
I learnt about how to be a team player,time keeping, learnt about other countries and capitals due to destinations and origins of parcels. Management were friendly, supportive and particular about health and safety. Motivation quotes were written within the workplace and this encouraged employees. The hardest part of the job was directing and assisting drivers with offloading of parcels.The most enjoyable part of the job is the friendly atmosphere, working as part of a team and open door policy with management.
