A very demanding Company to work for.
Forklift Operator, Outbound (Former Employee) –  Canton, MSAugust 13, 2018
I know from my experience with this company, as an associate I didn't receive my bonuses and was not respected as an Adult by some of the Higher Personnel.
Pros
Good Company to work for, love the open door policy it was great.
Cons
Need to give associates quarterly bonuses, excused sick days, paid vacations days, get rid on the point system and hire better people in the higher position across the board.

poor management
Quality Technician (Current Employee) –  Southaven, MS 38671August 13, 2018
The job is great just terrible supervisors that keep up more mess than the employees. I would rather work in a office alone instead of deal with the supervisors on the regular that is why i am seeking a career change to get away from the normal mess at DHL with the supervisors.

OPERATIONS SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) –  Groveport, OHAugust 13, 2018
DHL as a company is fantastic. Some of the upper management is just awful though. Getting promoted to a supervisor from an hourly is almost an impossible task.

Easy repetitive job
Lead Operator/Supervisor (Current Employee) –  WarwickshireAugust 13, 2018
A typical day at work is easy, you will repeatedly do the same thing over and over again. You only learn your job once then you will continue to do that job. The floor management are great, but the managers higher than them are not so great, but they're not around a lot of the time.the hardest part of the job is staying awake, and the most enjoyable part of the job is going home
Pros
Free lunch breaks
Cons
Short breaks

Logistics
Quality Manager (Former Employee) –  Lancaster, PAAugust 12, 2018
Logistics decided to add specialized services and so the Healthcare Life Science division was initiated. The services are customized for each customer. It is fast paced and evergreen. There is a lot of nepotism and little room for advancement given the Culture.
Pros
Overtime
Cons
Lots of Overtime

Good from the outside.
Manager (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAAugust 12, 2018
Days are long and work is endless. There's no balance between work and life outside of work. If you aren't working 10-12 hours daily you're viewed as not working hard enough. A positive culture is promoted, but when things get tough that's out the window.
Pros
Great network
Cons
Work-life balance is lacking.

You and your Co-workers set the atmosphere
Courier (Current Employee) –  Long Island City, NYAugust 12, 2018
It's fine if you have nothing else going for you pretty much. If your not looking to further your school career, want a decent job with good pay, little personal time for yourself and benefits than this is for you
Pros
Pay, weekends and most holidays off.
Cons
Too long to acquire ample vacation time, Hours are long, Management have no idea what they are doing, Blame the couriers for everything even issues outside of their jurisdiction

Class A Driver Frankfort Kentucky DHL
Class A CDL Driver (Former Employee) –  Frankfort, KYAugust 12, 2018
Starting pay for local drivers of approximately $17.50 with top out pay around $19 per hour after 3 years even if you have tank and hazmat endorsements which is well below median industry standards. Beware that they shut down at least 2 weeks at Christmas with no pay to the driver unless you use your vacation time. They may offer you a driving job out of state during this shut down time. Just received notice that the health benefit costs are going up in October. Management is happy to tell you there's no chance of advancement. This location is a 3rd party chain management company which is dependent on a contract with one customer to stay in business so job security is minimum to none. Our understanding is that this facility is migrating most of the work they have to DHL in Louisville so probably won't be doing much out of the Frankfort location soon. They have a very difficult time hiring and keeping drivers and will hire anyone interested in driving for them. It is for the most part drop and hook, Mostly Monday - Friday work in Frankfort, Ky.
Pros
Mon-Fri work

By not having a bachelor's degree, this isnt a bad place to work. There's politics and favoritism like any other jobob
Various Operations Support (Former Employee) –  Aurora, ILAugust 12, 2018
There are way worse places to work.too much favoritism. It's a 3rd party logistics company, you could loose the contract at anytime. I'd go back if there were openings in my area.

Ok Company
Operation Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNAugust 11, 2018
DHL is an ok company to work for. The only problem is job security. With 3PL you are not guaranteed a position at any of the other DHL facilities if the contract is not renewed by the customer. Every employee depends on the job security which is their livelihood.
Pros
Benefits are slightly of
Cons
Job security
