Shipping Industry Lingo
Hardest part of the job is the lingo - there are loads of shipping terms and acronyms so you need a dictionary to look them up and you feel on the back foot if you don't know them.

Over bearing and number driven
You are just a number in the big machine you or your family must take second place to the company. They will expect you to put the company above everything. Personnel replace frequently if you don’t fit in very much who you know not what you know.

Arrogant, incompetent HR department and Head of HR
As a manager, I sat in on meetings with senior management. I was shocked to hear the way HR talked about staff. The Head of HR once said in a meeting with all staff: "If you don't like it, please feel free to leave and go work in London". HR make promises during interviews and put these in contracts, but then after you start working, they change their minds. From benefits to bonuses, working hours and various other aspects of your work life, they just change things. They rely on a lonely employee not standing up to a large company and they use this to bully staff especially new or young staff. It's a toxic environment to have to work in. HR are not interested in helping or sorting out problems but just laugh when you phone (even at me as a manager). Even office staff working till 11PM due to workloads was a structural issue that HR just do not care about. A senior director once said to me " you have to accept that companies screw employees over, this is normal" I have 20 years of work experience at other multi-nationals and have never been treated as badly as at DP World London Gateway. Even their place in the local community is aggressive. They had zero interest in helping the local community manage the large number of trucks coming into the area specifically due to their Port activity. It took years before they finally built a Lorry Park It is a shame. The larger DP World company is awesome and London Gateway has so much potential and could be a great place to work.

Productive and Cheery Workplace
A typical day at work, within DP World, is rather busy. Jobs are constantly being called in and can consist of anything from filling a wheel of a shuttle carrier with oil, to fixing problems with it's engine. During my time there, I learnt how to solder, as well as fixing the rear lights on a container trailer. However learning my way around the workplace was difficult due to the lack of management around my stay at DP World. I found the co-workers to be cheery and productive. They didn't shut me out, despite my warming-up to them being a bit slow. The hardest part of the job was probably finding the people I needed to find to fill out my work experience programme, as despite my asking around for them, the instructions were sometimes unclear and I would have to improvise, or they wouldn't be where I was told they would be. The most enjoyable part of the job was being around the workers in the Engineering Department. I was lucky enough to be working during the time of the World Cup, and so there was a lot of banter going on between the co-workers, especially as we had a Colombian in the workplace and England were facing Colombia in the Round of 16.
