It depends on the customer and location. For example my DHL team worked at Campbell Soup, we worked 7 days a week with a lot of mandatory 12 hour shifts like three be times a week..i did make awesome money, like $1000 to $1400 a week because Sunday pay was double time and their was ways overime work available if you wanted it..yes the money was good but it burnt me out real quick..I only got 1 day off every 21 days!!!!!! I quit!!! Couldn't take it!! Missed my daughter and just having time to do simple things like wash clothes, relax and watch TV....it was a forever on the go type of job.work..eat get up run errands rush home get ready to work 2nd shift...lol missed the money but so glad I left!!

In the office part of the company, depending on your department. Plan on 40 to 45 hrs a week. During peak plan on 50 hrs a week. Side note.. they can only make you work a 10 hr day. Its company policy. Read your hand book!
