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

Productive and fun place of work

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.

Cons

Long hours

Fun working environment

A normal day-to-day basis DSV was a fun working environment. I learned things such as how to operate the Delta system, and how to do things on it that people who working there for 5 years could not. Management was to easy to communicate to and always fair in all ways possible. The hardest part of my job at DSV was the hours as work was picking up and we had to work over-time on a daily basis.

Very Productive company with strong corporate culture

DSV is a very productive company with strong corporate culture, that has proven its growth capabilities organically but also through M&A. DSV is a good company to work for and I will miss it very much should I have to leave.

Productive

The best employees were always over looked and the worst have all the leads and management as a whole. Never got paid as a heavy wheel mechanic but was one since day 1 for 13 years. Where's my back pay? Laughable that I'll ever see a dime

Pros

None

Cons

Employee cliques. You need to clean house on Management and HR. Micromanage good employees.
