Apart from the money being pretty good there are really no other good things about working for the eastleigh branch! Well the coffee machine being 10p was awesome.. the planning is pretty shocking, most of the time you have to chase a supervisor around just to find out what's going etc. Don't dream of taking a day off unless you want to be threatened with being let go no matter the reason! You get told you've got a nice day ahead of you to then find out all you've got is the S**T end of what the other drivers don't want! You'll get scanners that don't work properly too and that can also really mess up your day!
Pros
Cheap coffee.
Cons
Long hours, rubbish equipment provided, snake type supervisors, bad/no planning!

I worked as a delivery driver here for 7 months. Not only did I spend my entire days and sometimes nights doing my own job, we were expected to pick up slack of other drivers... which would be fine if they were paying me more than $13.00 an hour with no benefits, while other drivers got pay raises. The management was horrible. It’s a bad work environment altogether. If you’re sick and have to take a day off? That’s too bad. You either come in or they threaten to let you go from the job you work your butt off in. They complain about not having enough drivers, but the management is too lazy and cheap to hire more people when they really need it.
Pros
Money, being able to work alone, getting to know regular customers
Cons
Bad management, low pay, no benefits, poor quality transit vans, favoritism

The job is very simple as long as you're capable of navigating a route and have good time management. Some days you will have a heavy work load but other days will be light and simple. If you're over loaded management will try to help you and make it even for everyone. As long as you do your job and do it well, you're basically your own boss, you don't have anyone breathing down your neck!#daddy
Pros
Decent pay, willing to work with your schedule
Cons
Healthcare

Be incredibly careful when applying for either of these companies offering work for dhl. I have been in the industry several years and i was disgusted with there management. Imperial failed to pay me on multiple occasions even after doing 14 hr days. Craft connoisseur gave me a van with no tax or mot and it broke down on the motorway with no recovery? Worst companies out there.
Pros
The money seems good at first
Cons
When you work it out its terrible for the hours

Pros
Management is very lenient
Cons
Not enough money, very long hours, and will take advantage of you

You will be moving non-stop from start to finish, better be in good shape. Management is very unhelpful and just expects you to make all your drops. Very little break time.
Pros
None
Cons
Little time for breaks

This job has the potential to be great if the culture was different. Workload is hard but still achievable most days and the money is more than fair considering they provide vehicles and fuel, with all payments accurate and on time. However, if you are the type who needs to feel appreciated, dont apply. You could clear your route every day but on return to the depo, you wont be thanked and trust me, they will find a reason to pick fault, even something as simple as moaning where you parked the van up even if you have parked it there with no problems before. Ironically, the Senior Management are fair and pleasant so it is a mystery where this culture comes from. Bottom line, if you just accept half the staff are not happy and are taking their unhappiness on someone they can (ie an agency worker) then youll be fine because the job on the whole is easy and reasonable money for what you do and the benefits you get. Remember, you only have to put up with them for an hour a day, the rest you can laugh out on the road.
Pros
Friendly hard working coworkers and Senior Management, you get paid for the hours you do
Cons
Attitude to agency workers is beyond disrespectful at times, middle management will have you out the door if you express concerns

When I arrived to the warehouse. I would receive route list for deliveries, load cargo vans, deliver packages. Daily inspection on cargo vans. I did pick up's from individuals as well as chain stores, Fedex, Ups ext.I learned to time management is very important with driving for DHL.Management was good, they had a good system for helping us complete deliveries and help with moral. Workplace culture was great. Everyone was happy to help another driver with deliveries and pick up's. And everyone wiling to give advice on how to help each other.The hardest part of this job was not planning on traffic jams and or construction when you have limited time. When deliveries are made during the holidays. everyone is happy when they get deliveries during the holidays.
Pros
dinner goals, Christmas Bonus, 1 week paid vacation, Pto, benefits
Cons
long hours

Basically dhl contracts to have there packages delivered and leaves it up to the contractor to pay workers .Making pay drip from the top to the bottom pay is so low workers can not afford the insurance so your forced to live off the tax payers of the united states to take care of you.The work is the same as federal express x and ups but pay is not.
Pros
Hire anybody
Cons
Pay

It’s a culture of intimidation and inadequate management. You are required to do your job and then the job of others without compensation. No training to speak of BUT then you can’t screw up (?) avoid this job unless you’re in desperate need or young!!!

they pay you for deliveries made, you have to organize the route, we talk about 12 hours a day for less than 100 pounds. forced to do time deliveri in different areas, so you drive for km only for a delivery
Pros
you are forced to return to the same area later then to make a collection, which then maybe is not there. I no longer see my son and my family, I go home destroyed and I immediately fall asleep from exhaustion
Cons
No
