Working with DHL was a blessing, they made sure everyone is well taken care of, the floor was friendly only if you doing your job but overall the management was fairly also.The safety culture made the job to be more easier than i thoughtWorking together was the best part of the job
Long Hours but fairly paid
Teamwork is their culture ,lots of activities ,MUST BE PRODUCTIVE TO MANAGEMENT AND IF THEY FEEL THAT YOU ARE LACKING SOMEWHERE THEY PROVIDE TRAININGS .Team spirit is the most important environment .Conducting toolbox sessions where most of the employees voices their opinions

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

Hello,Thank you for taking the time to evaluate your time in our company. Of course, it is our duty to ensure our employees are treated equally and that they have access to opportunities in a fair and balanced environment.DHL is a great place to develop and find career opportunities on all levels and the workload and functions are assigned by managers considering performance and availability. We're sorry that you felt you were treated unfairly. In this respect, we would like to encourage all our workers to raise their voice and to contact their direct supervisor. They know their employees' strengths and potential best. In a joint discussion, they can be sure to clarify what opportunities are available for the professional development.We thank your for the efforts you have made during your time at DHL and wish you all the best for your future.

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.
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
I worked with people who were determined , knowing that when we come to work we do our duties fully. I can say it was a good environment for me and I was happy to work there with the team that was highly discipline and punctual when comes to time. I was enjoying my work challenges.
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.
Only when there is an overtime
Very good place to work for, managment always there to help you, they do have very high standards which is a good thing because it helps you to improve your own standards, but if you make a mistake they will punish you, which I regret doing so sad to leave because of my mistakes.
One very powerful organisation which pays the best salary in town. Be prepared to work long hours. Be ready for corporate politics.
You have to be on top of your game at all times. No time to relax. Your colleagues are all competing for your job. Make sure you keep abreast of industry trends...read every day. Be prepared to work long hours. Be sure you know the numbers associated with your business. No one is your friend. Avoid sharing personal information.
I would recommend DHL to any one without doubt, they're very professional and true to their slogan of "on time,in full"which was a promise we never broke while I was there.
I was delivering to different customers like private hospitals, pharmacies and chain stores. Firstly when I was to go out with the truck I was use to check my load properly in the truck,check the truck whether is road worthy I was doing my check list of the truck on a daily basis. Check my invoices about whether are they correspond with my load there after I go to my supervisor to get pass out
