Does DB Schenker offer dental insurance?

Pros

Paychecks are fat because you live there. That is all.

Cons

Holy moly where to start. Don’t expect to go home and stay home. Communication is the worst I have ever seen. The benefits are overpriced for underwhelming coverage. They claim “best training” but someone will die from lack of training. Supposed to be 2-2-3 more like 6 days a week with one day off 12 hour shifts. Managers are so overworked they can’t handle SEVERE problems on the floor until a forklift has rolled over. The turnover rate is so horrible they don’t tell you; seriously if I had to guess somewhere around 70-80%. They are rammed by proctor and gamble and take it out on their employees. There is no maternity leave for men. The 401k is up to 5%. That’s it for retirement. The ones who are rewarded are the ones who cheat, and sit around all day behind a desk. You are forced to meet their expectations or you WILL be terminated at the bare minimum of being treated like an outcast. People do not care about safety nor is safety enforced and kept up with in anyway shape or form. Not once, while I was there for five months, did we ever have a safety briefing. Equipment is not kept up with, nor is there the ability to keep up with equipment. Constant broken lifts, and computer problems. The warehouse system they use is utterly broken and will spit in your face after every single working day; and the only way to get around it is to break rules. Upper management is completely unreachable, including HR. I brought up issues with a medical condition I have and had to wait three days before I was able to even speak with an HR rep. The entire warehouse is being converted to automation, people WILL loose their jobs with no chance to change positions. You can’t move 200 people to a new department without causing catastrophic problems else where. Older people are not welcomed as most do not fit their production demands. Employees are searched regularly even under the slightest suspicion. But please, heed my warning. STAY AWAY. Unless you feel the need to give your literal life and soul to this operation, you will do better at a fast food restaurant.

Advice to Management

I cannot offer advice to those who see no problems. And even then, it will take years to fix and make this puppet show an actual decent place to work.

The benefits are overpriced for underwhelming coverage.
