Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Good company,I truly enjoy my moments working for DHL supply chain but unfortunately the company contract with client have come to end. If I may get another opportunity I definitely grab with both hands. However, I wish the company can agree with their clients to fixed contract or long contract not less than 10 years. Hence some people will sees it as irreliable company when it comes to job security.

Pros

Training and activities

Cons

No job security, too much relocation.

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

Good but not really fun place to be

It is a good company if not the best .You know in every company there are these people who are raised according to merit and not qualifications and believe me those people wants everyone to notice them and they don't go according to the Labour laws and that is if they know any.Watch out for these people

Pros

Selected ones like warehouse guys Yes

Cons

If you can not stand your ground you will work until you dont feel like

Professional, world class organisation.

Working for DHL has elevated my knowledge about logistics, supply chain and 3PL management. A typical work day would be filled with learning, exposure to all elements of the business and growth opportunity. The management I worked with were very supportive, the environment created was conducive for learning and all employees felt appreciated and always wanted to go over and beyond what was expected. The hardest part of the job was having to leave as the our contract was nearing the end. The most enjoyable part of the job was the management I worked with, knowing that they were always their to assist and never hesitated; The employees always willing to learn, giving more than 100% of their time to achieve targets and in doing so elevating their knowledge and growth opportunities within the company. With DHL I had gained exposure to New Systems, SOP's, World Class Health and Safety Standards, project management and 3PL knowledge and exposure.

Pros

Company Culture, learning and growth opportunities, campaigns and rewards

Cons

DHL works on a contract basis with companies, so the prospect of knowing that you will not be able to move with DHL

Average

DHL international brand and company culture is really good. However this was never displayed in the CT branch as there was too much favouritism and grievances lodged to HR would go unheard. Frustrating to work in these conditions and caused me to seek alternate occupation. The brand and its values are AWESOME the people at Cape Town DHL Express is not.

Pros

Bonus, salary

Cons

Culture, people, bias

Professional, staff and management had a close bond treated each other as family

Its a good company to work for and ŕegarded as no.1 in the Global freight industry. The staff are well taken care of in regard of benefits. I.e. Pension fund/medical aid and bonuses. The management carry out their roles as professional and skilled individuals. They have a good relationship with their staff. Recommend anyone to work at DHL Global Forwarding

Pros

Free lunches and 13th cheque

Cons

Insentives and increase based on performance

Productive and High Valued workplace

A typical day at work starts with our daily team talks to discuss the previous day's performance and targets for the day ahead.This is followed by a 15 minute brief with the Inventory team to set out their task for the day so that we know who takes care of what department's inventory issues.The schedule for the day's deliveries are looked at so that we can see who has arrived on time as per schedule and who needs to be followed up with.Once this has been put into order the day consists mostly from checking up on loads ready for putaways and managing the Inventory team's work load from checking up on pick bin exceptions to location counts and stock investigations. Nonconformance issues with Vendors delivering stock to our DC are highlighted on arrival and dealt with before the product is receipted into the warehouse. All department's goals are set out clearly and percentages of completion are communicated with the different teams as the day progresses.With an enegetic team like the present one we find that all challenges are taken on with the expectation on resolving it fast and with a high Standard to fix the problem the first time and to be able to move on without a reatcive approach on a later stage.

Pros

Friendly Staff and Management

LO QUE APRENDI EN EL TRABAJO

LO QUE APRENDI EN MI ANTIGUO PUESTO DE TRABAJO ES LA CAPACIDAD DE PODER CONECTAR CON TODOS LOS EMPLEADOS, YA QUE ES UNA EMPRESA DEDICADA A VALORAR A SUS EMPLEADOS EN TODO MOMENTO.
