Typical day at work - scanning in of freight, calling clients for delivery appointments, handle queries and assist with incoming calls from clients. I have learned how to work in almost every department within the branch. I get along with my colleagues and we always make our working environment fun by helping each other and having work occasional conversations about various things. The hardest part of the job would be to have to do more than one person's job when a colleague is on vacation. The most enjoyable part is having to work with a great team. Whenever there's conflict, it gets sorted out immediately. We don't enjoy working in a tense environment and believe that we are suppose to make our job fun.
Did data capturing and didn't even receive half of my weekly wages when i enquired about the missing amounts i was ignored, when i tried sorting the matter i received empty promises
Hardly anything to do
Immature co workers and unhelpful seniors
Great learning curve. Stepping stone if you are passionate about being a professional driver/ courier, great work environment and teamwork. Meeting new individuals daily.
Exploring new places or locations and meeting new people/clients
Early hour shift start
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

On feet hole day
Checking Unpacks of containers at Depots, arranging deliveries . I've learned that not everybody is your friend , some of them pretend to be or some is just using you ( knowledge ) to get to the top... Management , always delegating & takes all the credit . workplace is fun at times especially lunch times , nice to socialize with colleagues . hardest part would be a task that is giving to you which clearly you know nothing what's going on that you have figure it out yourself . my most enjoyable part is learning new things everyday...
Staff Functions, free food and drinks.
DSV is a fine organization to be part of. Gaining so much experience in an organization that world-wide is one or the incredible experiences one could ever get. Learned so much in the administration department as I was multi-tasking, being a data entry capture and an administration clerk at the same time. Working with people or different cultures as well, you get to learn new things not only work related but a life as in general.
One hour of lunch
Overtimes when we had backlogs.
On tuesdays and thursdays was our busiest days of the week which i always looked out for. These 2 days we had to reach our goal earlier than the other days, so that we can move into or start with the new batch for the following day to stay ahead of our deadlines.This was when i worked at my outmost best to reach our goal. I have learned that there is no space for error at this job, so you need to stay focused. Management was very supportive, understanding and open minded. The culture at this workplace was to be goal driven. Hardest part of this job was the continous long hours of standing. Team work was the most enjoyable part of this job.
management gives a braai 3 times a year to all staff
A day at work always turns out to be long, strenous and unprofessional people and planning. The culture is bad, everybody bad mouth one another and talk behind others whilst to make themselves look good. People don't get put in better positions. There is no proper close review of each employees work that is put in to the company. I learned to be a machine operator, despatch clerk and a deadline-driven person. There is nothing enjoyable for me no more. I have been on the same place for almost 5 years. The company gives no promise on development.
Long hours, unprofessional people in charge.
