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

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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

Dsv is a good company to work for, but depending on who is your GM/MD, and what culture are they driving

Dsv is logistic company, you can develop yourself in many ways. It has good policies that protects its employees. It also has a training center for its employees

Pros

Nepotism..

We were exploited most of the time,I hated working there because we would work overtime and never got paid for .

She treated us like trash, always threatening us with our jobs,never allowing us to write the correct time for knocking off, would work on Saturday and she wouldn't let us sign in the register,so we worked for free on Saturday and she wouldn't even compensate us with transport money.

Fastpaced and stressful

Working at DSV was extremely fast paced, which i have no problem with however management was not pleasant. It did not matter how you approached her or a situation, she would always speak to you with disrespect which was not pleasant and thus always kept you on edge and made you feel stressed and as though your job is unsafe.

A great company to work for but managers are fond to abusing their power of position.

Focus on your work and be aware of attacks from colleagues and management when the going gets tough. Management tend not to take responsibility because they want to keep a clean sheet, to an extend that they will fire you for their mistakes.

It's a busy environment with good management

I start work @ 7am in the morning finishing at 4pm. Doing full function Accounting, supervising 4 team members. I was unemployed when I started this job hence I took a salary offer which was less than my previous job.Management is good, the only issue is most decisions are made in Polland where the company's head office is. So sometimes it takes longer for a decision to be made. I have gained experience in working for a logistics company.

Stressful environment

Overall good company but lacking in training and good management. Systems in place also cannot facilitate for the clients expectations. Lacking in good leadership and support

Great employer

I loved working for DSV. They recognise your achievements and there is an overall good work/life balance. I would definitely recommend working for this company and would love to join them in the current country I reside.

Productive workplace

A typical day at work for me was always busy and productive when I became the team leader of dispensing team.My supervisor gave me more duties and my responsibility was much bigger than before.Every morning I had to do the batch report of the batch that was being delivered that morning.Importance was that the batch was fully completed and that there was no outstanding parcels.If parcels was outstanding it had to be dispensed again.The facility had to be informed that it would be delivered the next day.I sent email to the supervisors is cases like that.I was responsible for finding locums to work in the evenings,I created a group on whatsapp for the locums which made it much easier just by sending a message asking who is available and the quantity of dispensers needed.It used to be time consuming when I had to phone the locums 1 by 1. My supervisor was impressed when I suggested to her my idea of creating the group and she gave me the go ahead to create group.She could also address important issues on the group.It was impossible to have meetings with locums because of the workload always being huge and that time in production was very crucial because we had a deadline everyday that had to be done. Unfortunately unforeseen circumstances occurred that was impossible to prevent in some cases like load shedding. Backup generator was lifesaver but if operations stood still for more than an hour it caused even more pressure on everyone because we had to prevent being fined if the delivery date was not as agreed. The hardest part of the job was probably in the beginning when we -
