Dhl is a good company to work for depending on the location your at. There are many positions in the warehouse and picking is the worst one in my opinion. You have to rush from start to finish picking items all night on your feet just to meet your production number. I cant see myself doing picking forever it wears you down over time. I have to get another position if I'm ever going to stay here.
Physically exhausted having to meet production number every night

Absolutely the worst company I’ve ever worked for. The managers were very unprofessional and very abusive in their language. I left and so glad I did!
the job is ok on mondays in the department i work in there is never enough equipment so they have you standing around all day until they decide if you can leave and if you leave you dont get paid for it
cafeteria long lunch
benefits aren't that good for the first year
Your management is a joke! Plenty of favoritism and only select people get advancement. Diverse work force but they don’t like to promote minorities due to language barriers. Every supervisor they had has already quit and now it’s run by a kid that doesn’t know the first thing about the job. She wrote me up because she found a cardboard box that was empty and had to put blame on someone. Employee turnover is over 200%. Good job if you’re a teenager living at home but if you have any type of family life they will not accommodate even once. Promised all sorts of on site child care and exercise room which is not truthful. There was no daycare and my schedule changes frequently it’s hard to get sitters.
You can do what you want and they don’t notice
False hopes in cross training, unqualified supervisors, poor HR department.
Only two nice managers out of dozens. Employee’s are nice for the most part. Schedule - unpredictable Pay - worth it if there’s is even any work to do Disorganized, stressful, time-wasting, and unpredictable. New schedule every week, unannounced meetings, unannounced mandatory days, broken point system, and large amounts of favoritism. Sometimes we would be told to stand around because we ran out of work.
Disorganized, unpredictable, stressful, broken point system, etc.
I started working for DHL after being in a corporate environment for many years. DHL ecommerce has well intentions however they have the wrong people in place to execute the plan. When hired the make you feel like they care and want you to succeed however once you start working that game changes. You realize you are a human robot and you are there to perform a task and that's all. The mental slavery I endured was overwhelming and heartbreaking. Didn't know this sort of thing still existed in America. Don't get me wrong, the company over all I believe wants to do a good job however you can have the greatest work model but if the people who are in charge of executing the plan fail your model is of no use. Management on C shift could use some additional training and people skills. Very unprofessional environment
It’s a high turn over but other than that it’s an okay job if you want a second temp job but you will be able to work without warehouse experience no heavy lifting I kinda like it I’ve been here a year
They start off at $13-14 dollars
A lot of standing on hard floors, and it’s big it is a kinda long walk to your destination but it keeps you moving
The management at DHL is very POOR some supervisors are cool and they like to micromanage and find every little reason to write you up. The only way i feel you can move up in the company is if you kiss a!! and they are very young straight out of college so they feel as though they know everything. They will track your time so be ready to explain were you where at any given time. The turn over rate is very high. They have fun activities for you to do sometimes depending on the shift you work. Get ready to be snitched on because people love to tell on you that's how some of them get their yellow shirts. It feels like a prison and we are on lock down and rec time is 30 mins long and get back to your area and start back working or you'll get a write up.
the people that don't know how to work properly are babied and the ones that work the hardest get double the work. trainers are also very unnapproachable, god forbid you make one mistake they will gossip and make an example out of you. culture is terrible. 100% would not reccomend working here. company is very cheap, you will hit a ceiling and not get a raise whether you're here for 1 or 20 years.
beneifts only if fulltime
culture, salary, management
DHL is always one of the best organization to work. Company principles are dynamic. However, its people what matters. Growth is slow and you may have to be highly talented in all aspects to reach a managerial level. At times, you may find dominating team member or a manager who may not be interested in talking to you. But at a personal level, its you who must outshine yourself to get a recognition and growth.
The building is highly unorganized, and has very little planning ahead. Anything plans are changed and the work predictions are false. The work balance is completely off, it is either super light or super busy. 90% of the time you'll sweep the floors or or get sent home. There is not enough work for more than one shift to be in. The first two shifts are offered VTO for the time the next shift takes over. And all temps are sent home early to save money. The building management also plays favorites and prefers you don't think freely. Most people will rat you out for being negative for a Klondike bar. Management will not go through write ups or terminations with you properly. Nor will they give you specifics on the situations. Word of advice record any office meeting they call you in for. They don't follow proper procedures, complaints about the building should be listened to and not used against employees to terminate them. Family members, people living together and people in relationships should NOT be on the same shift or overlapping shifts while having two different positions of power. Bias judgement will be made and it can make things complicated on the floor. Each shift has a team lead or supervisor with a family member or partner working underneath them. Employees are fired just for thinking negatively, and when they express these concerns the HR shrug it off, several people were known to be terminated within the past 3 weeks over them expressing their concerns. The company prefers to silence you rather than work with you. It has a HUGE language barrier, the temp - more...
night shift is really smooth, less management. you can work at your own pace depending on where you work. FYI put away and returns at night have the worst management, they promote ANYBODY that sticks up with supervisors. Leads and supervisors do nothing but gossip. the management at picking is not the best either but it’s better than those 2. IC is really simple and they have the best management. don’t know about the rest of the departments.
