I had overall a good working experience at DHL while it lasted. The interview process was smooth. When I started working I was provided the necessary training and any support that was required. My only disappointment is that I wasnt given the job security that was assured at the interview stage.
Pros
Good work environment
Cons
Job security

Fast pace management are a joke and never help the staff you have a day off sick for any reason they will threaten you with the sack think before applying if you are healthy you won't be as you will be driven into the ground think before applying money good but why are they so desperate for people and advertising every week if its so good there (alarm bells ringing) AVOID

I enjoyed the work but you don't know what you are doing until you've turned up! That could range from a 4 to a 15 hour shift! Every driver gets messed around here as they cannot formulate a plan until the last minute and that could change during the shift! 15 experienced drivers left this year in the first 3 months for the same reasons. Not everyone can be wrong!It could be a great job if ran correctly but sadly i couldn't stick around any longer to wait for a 'what if'!
Pros
Good work and trucks.
Cons
The not knowing what you are doing until you get there!

Keep smiling, your on film, in cab camera watching your every move, AI technology constantly monitoring your activity in the cab. Prepare for many 'coaching sessions from unqualified management and if your really lucky, more formal meetings.

Bad management, excessive work and stress, no brakes only a 30 min brake, no toilet brakes as you are not allowed to go to the toilet more than 2 times a day and you have to inform your manager if you have to go, repetitive work moving the same stock over and over again from warehouse to warehouse, can’t get holidays even if you book them 2 months in advance as they don’t have enough staff. Worked there for an year did my best to get a better job in the company and they don’t really care I got fired for wanting a better position.

The top management, staff and my colleagues were very good. The use of SLAM is excellent. Keen interest in quality of product delivered. Quality control is excellent. A lot of care has been taken to keep the employees safe during this pandemic. All I can say is that it is amazing amazing and amazing place to work.

Treated like dirt. The office staff for the most part are incapable of helping or talking to drivers with any respect. You are just a bum in a seat until you make an error then all of a sudden you are a professional who is blamed for everything that goes wrong
Pros
none
Cons
long hours, heavy work, lack of respect

Would not advise working here. Staff moral is very low and not 1 person has a good word to say about the company, they are always moaning. You wont get trained as there is no time for anyone to train you right across the board(warehouse and office). The warehouse system doesnt work as there's always stock put in wrong place but as they've spent millions, they wont change it or correct it. Your break for full 12 hour shift will be a staggering 30 minutes only! Holidays will mostly be declined as they are always short staffed.

U’ll get long days and u’ll get dead easy days, but it’s transport so expect unexpected.In the overall it’s hard but decent job, company policy is transparent (you’ve got a problem or concern - you will get help) and might be a bit strict but if you’ll follow the rules you won’t get bollocked simple as that.
Pros
Job security, good management
Cons
Really hard work sometimes, work/life balance

It was the last job I had on today's date and the longest I had that made me learn and develop a lot in me. I had a very good team to work with, which provided good working days and work efficiency. An important detail: the company paid well at the time

Working there was ok up until now but they decided to change our working hours without any consultation or notice. Its quite shocking that they just decided to totally change work hours and turn our families and life outside work upside down. Very upsetting and many will leave. No more two days off together anymore- or once in a while. Weekends are destroyed for us and some have to work several days in a row to get a day off. They could have done it in a better way and encourage weekend work with some incentives. What they have done now is shocking and unacceptable. They don't care what it means for anyone. If you don't like it: leave. Don't buy promise: this 4 days in, 4 days off...Hope many will leave and this will be a wake up call for them as once everything opens after lockdwon people will change jobs and leave this horrible place with poor managment.
Pros
money
Cons
hours are crazy now

I think everywhere where every you go is always the same. Either you got very poor management or bad people. Unfortunately this two things are most important to be happy coming to work but most likely we go because we need to pay bills and support ourself and family . There are not many companies where you are so fortunate to love the job, people and place. I think we always can find what we want if you want to look for perfect job.
