DHL Employee Review

High demand company

Fast paced and high demand company. No work life balance. Extreme hours with no compensation for extra hours. Little training opportunities. You need to jump in the deep end and make it work.

Pros

Good benefits

Cons

Long hours

Hello,We are delighted that you took the time to give us this feedback and rate us with 5 stars.We work continuously to offer our employees additional benefits. In our opinion, this is a meaningful form of appreciation. We are pleased that you have received it positively and have used it to your advantage.Work-life balance is a key part of self-care when juggling the responsibilities of your workday, home life, and relationships with your family members and other loved ones. That means good work planning is part of a well-functioning working day and helps to reduce stress. That also has a positive effect on private life. As described by you, it is still necessary for improvement.We wish you much success and satisfaction in your next job. But most of all, thank you for all your efforts and your patience. Warm greetings to Gauteng!Your DHL Team

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
