Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
slow paced with outdated processes. lack of structure and no room for growth.There are no processes but management has high expectations of the work. Environment is very repetitive. You will eventually feel under challenged if yo work her too long

play hard but work harder

A great Company to work for. One of the best not only in the industry for me personally . The staff are super friendly and helpful, 1 thing I really enjoyed was the distribution manager would walk distributions floor every morning with out fail, go to each department and great all employees by name and hand shake before asking his morning question, this for me was how I knew I was at home.The only issue I had was the work life balance but in all honesty it really was not bad.

It is just a normal place to work at.

At DSV you Arrive. You take your merchandise, and you deliver to your clients, the job doesn't have complications. Management interaction with subordinates is very minimal. The nice thing about DSV is that when you are done with your job, you go home.

Pros

You are allowed to smoke

Cons

There is no company culture.

Pressurized environment

Experience was great but their training is not up to date. Lot of work, e.g admin, raising claims and discounts, not enough time to go through your book to collect in between there is client meetings every month.

I really enjoyed working for one of the leading players in the field of transportation and logistics. We worked around the northern cape in partner with the department of education.I learned quite a lot.

Pros

Extra bonuses year end

Cons

Tiring hour's

Productive, underpressure, long hours and funny

VW side Centurion, was the hardest because picking was for the VW employees and packing was for the DSV employees. DSV would suffer the late picking as it will lead to long hour of overtime and over loaded work.

Pros

No free lunch

Cons

Just work

Fun place to work in and can improve on the management style.

Good place to work in but staff are too relaxed compared to other Supply Chain industries. Everyone including management is too friendly. There is room for improvement if the management style changes. Why settle for less when you can accomplish much more. Targets and deadlines can be met on a regular basis with a change in management style. Create good strong teams and lead by example.

Pros

Free light snacks for lunch. Coffee machine available

Cons

Long hours including weekends

Great place for beginners

Working for dsv had teach me that you can start as non experience and gain more experience with them, training opportunities are very high if you're a go getta person or a willing person and dreams, the only thing I didn't like is that they use agencies to hire so chances of being permanently are very low.

Pros

No free lunch and end year party function

Cons

Normally working hours
