Overall good company to work for, some particular sites management don't practise what they preach
SENIOR SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) –  Heathrow, Greater London4 June 2018
Look forward everyday to meet the team, everyday is a new challenge which makes it even more interesting and satisfying.

Management, however, need to walk the talk instead of just doing tick box exercises and not keep their promises.

Great " can do" attitude on a daily basis by the team, very good team spirit.

Hardest part of the job is building the bridge between what is expected from senior management and what staff can actually do.

Most enjoyable part of the job is the mutual respect between warehouse staff and their direct line managers.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
blame culture

Frontline Customer Service Advisor (Former Employee) –  Castle Donington, Leicestershire3 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.
Pros
30 minutes Lunch. Lenient on lates (1-5mins).
Cons
Not much. Gridlock Car Parks (2CP).

Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) –  Peterborough, Cambridgeshire28 May 2018
My typical day: i'm coming to work at 6 am , the manager says about health and safety and then we start to work. The salary on DHL and workplace culture is good. DHL doesn't have hard part of the job.

Great Teams but bad senior management
OPERATIONS MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Birmingham, West Midlands16 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.
Pros
Great teams of shop floor guys
Cons
Bad management culture

Very high targets set. Reasonable salary, but they take their pound of flesh for it.
Warehouse Picker and Packer (Former Employee) –  Swindon9 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.
Pros
Reasonable salary
Cons
Very physical and a harsh working environment
