They are committed to their customers and they believe in doing the right thing by them. As with any company they must balance this desire with the reality of staying viable in the market. They offer great opportunities for advancement, great learning and training opportunities and the culture is supportive of career advancement if the employee takes responsibility for it.
They are brutal in their human resource objectives and lack empathy in some cases. The market changes constantly and to stay viable senior management chooses strategies but tends not to consult with line managers or employees who may have valuable contributions. while they are specific about expectations they are not as open as they could be to creative ways of fulfilling them
Advice to Management
If you want to succeed, put employees first. DPDHL has three guiding principles: They aim to be the Employer of choice, the provider of choice and the investment of choice. Management should attend to the first principle more closely than they do. It is a good place to work, and there is great opportunity, but it seems clear that "investment" of choice is the most important principle and not all who contribute to it's success are awarded adequately.

I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Deutsche Post DHL (Erlanger, KY) in February 2015.
I missed the Recruiter's call, but I called her back within twenty minutes. I didn't get in touch with her, it was a Friday, so I left a message telling her saying she could call me back at her earliest convenience. Whenever I called the phone would ring three times then go to her voicemail. Called her again that Monday and left another message, because I was afraid I wasn't clear enough and forgot to add my phone number to the first message. Actually tried a couple more times to reach her, I didn't leave messages those times. Didn't receive a back until today. It'd been over two weeks since she initially contacted me. I mistakenly said I called her back last week, but really it was over two weeks ago. Her excuse was she was in and out of the office last week. There was bad weather in our area last week, but the week before it was totally fine. An hour shy of our five minute phone call, where she said she would call me back to let me know something, I received a email saying they're pursing candidates who match our needs more closely. Also, after she first contacted me I was locked out of the job posting, so I couldn't review it. I apply in December so the details of the job were fuzzy, I would have loved the chance to have review before she returned my call. My experience was bad. It's unfortunate that it took a total of 62 days to find out I wouldn't even be interviewed properly for the job.
