I worked at the old Kent road DPD depot, the negative far outweigh the positive aspect of the work environment. Let me start of with the positive, the co-workers are willing to help even when I lagging behind the pace (keep in mind I was working for an agency, I’m going to get back to the agency aspect of it)…yep that’s the only positive thing about working in DPD. The negative, terrible management that could give two f weather you’re the new guy or not, they expect you to know everything on the spot, and if your section starts piling up with heavy boxes that comes down the conveyor every 30 seconds, they expect you to put in a tray like it’s nothing. Further more, 30 mins break, like really? I’ll understand if I was working in retail or something less demanding, but on a warehouse job, it’s just pure evil.
Lucru de noapte! Ore suplumentare! Double decker trailer! Excellent.
Bad morale. The managers are not qualified and micromanage. Not treated with respect and always have to work overtime, whether you want to or not. Awful
DPD is an extremely cut throat organisation and it’s only real focus is it’s bottom line. It’s management culture operates on a 1980’s strategy which is completely outdated in 2022. I have held multiple shift manager roles at DPD and have seen many questionable things take place during my time at the company. You will be expected to be always on call and pick up the phone no matter what time of day it is , even when you are on holiday ( that’s if your holiday is approved which is extremely unlikely) You will be expected to work unpaid extra hours on a daily basis. You will get constantly stressed with changing and unattainable targets. You will see staff turn over like a revolving door. You will see management actively belittle employees in front of their peers. You will get no recognition for the hard work you put in. You will be expected to be a jack of all trades, as a shift manager you will also be a lorry loader and a delivery driver on top of your job. Please don’t make the same mistake as me because I guarantee you will be looking for a job not long after you start.
Very stressful. You are always expected to do loads more than is in your job description. Answering calls from customers that are abusive and threatening, no support from management. All they are interested in is the ETA not if it’s been delivered correctly. Drivers don’t care, it’s a battle to get help to solve any issues.
