Very high powered and stressful environment with continuous reports and deadlines to be met.

The company is well structured but overall a very stressful environment to work in with a lot of deadlines to be met for various departments. What's very stressful is looking after multiple sites with little time for a work/life balance.

Pros

Well established organisation

Cons

Stressful deadlines to meet

Favoritism

People are not recognized for there hard work and knowledge. One is given a job if senior management wants one to move higher up in the company. Management overall does not appreciate staff

Working at DHL was a beautiful experience and it was very challenging,loved it still.The staff is friendly and the working environment was great experience for me since it was my first time.The management was very strict and rules were also very strict especially about safety of employees in the workplace We only worked nightshift which was bit hard at first but we got to adapt.Staff transport was paid by the company.

Ok

Hire and fire 🔥 attitude 👎 they need to have an Management that looks into the best interest of the employees and not focusing on own wealth,my as my contract was terminated by a Manager while I legally submitted my annual leave and he said he never received it but I handed it to him hand to hand with witness

Fun workplace and healthy environment

i used to order and pack car parts on a tow motor for them to be processed so they can built cars, i learnt that to work in a environment that is busy and make sure that the job gets done. the management was top class loving and caring people for their workers. The hardest part of the job was that when we were pressured to produce more than 200 cars daily it was a drag. When we meet our targets we would gather and announce our worker of the month it was good.

Pros

N/a

Cons

Only when there is an overtime
