Current Employee - Field Service Supervisor in Franklin Park, IL

I have been working at Deutsche Post DHL full-time for more than a year

Pros

Expense account, salary, good benefits, travel for training, bonuses, ongoing formal personal development, great training management, easy to get approval for personal time, willing to pay for personal development courses/programs.

Cons

Repetitive, no lunches or breaks, increasing responsibilities due to downsizing. The company is growing their international business and brought on many people to do so, but is getting rid of them to lean out. Union is frustrated with the fact that they left other jobs to come back to DHL, only to get occasional work. Management has to do more and more each day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cycle your employees through their different possible roles to cross-train them and drive down monotony.

    I worked at Deutsche Post DHL full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It would be better than no job at all.

    Cons

    After working for the company for 21 years they released all the original employees and contracted out all their services to the lowest bidder. Compared to UPS and FEDEX, DHL projects an image of a comparable service but in reality the product provided is inferior to the competition. If you are looking for the lowest cost and lowest quality product then DHL is the company for you.

    Great place to start a career and learn, but could have more corporate focus on talent management
