Productive and fun workplace

Everyday is a learning day at DHL, they offer you a platform to not just gain experience but also further tour knowledge. The management is so great and they are solution driven. No department is more important than the other one,they value every department as an organisation.the hardest part of the job is getting to work with very big customers in the field but the most enjoyable part of the job is the connection between employer and employees,they take good care of their employees at all times

Pros

Company benefits

Fine place

DHL is a good company to work for. I was shocked when we were advised of Possible Retrenchments, where I was one of the employees that were retrenched. But we were told business is not good, that is why they had to downsize.

Pros

Free Lunches sometimes

Cons

Long hours

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
