    Current Employee - Package Delivery Driver in Kansas City, MO

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at DHL Express for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Excellent Contractor to work for, great job, great pay, good way to get knowledge of city & surrounding areas. Easy work, great office help, great drivers.

    Cons

    Driver Manager is an idiot, can't answer questions, creates turmoil among drivers, has control issues, needs to go elsewhere, McDonald's maybe...passes the buck to cover her inadequacy, is unrealistic when it comes to delivery times and mileage. Does not supply tools or training to do job effectively. If she doesn't like you don't expect to work there very long...

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of her, drivers & other office help can't understand why she still has job, loosing good help because of her. Creates frustration among drivers. Things would go smoother, attitudes would be better, turn over would be less, as they like their jobs, not her.

    I worked at DHL Express full-time

    Pros

    You get lots of hours I'm talking about 55 to 65 hours a week and 14 hours a day

    Cons

    Pay at 12 dollars an hour for a courier is horrible besides the long days working 14 and 12 hours per day and you really don't feel compensated for what you do and middle management is horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pressuring drivers to the point they just walk out because they really aren't getting compensated to be taking so much abuse and are sacrificing a lot of family time.

  3. "Driver/Courier"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Courier/Delivery Driver in Decatur, GA

      I worked at DHL Express for more than 20 years

      Pros

      On the road meeting new clients on a daily basis. No supervisor standing over you throughout the day. Peace of mind when you're not in the mood to be bothered.

      Cons

      The depletion of domestic freight! It caused so many people to lose work & close relationships with co-workers, staff but most importantly, CUSTOMERS!

      I have been working at DHL Express for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Benefits and weekends off.

      Cons

      No matter what time you come in, you get a set pay for the day and may have to work over time during the week with Chinese over-time pay.

      Advice to Management

      Give standard over-time pay for hours worked and pto benefits to hard working employees.

      I worked at DHL Express full-time

      Pros

      Good pay, and good health benefits.

      Cons

      Good pay only if you are and benefits only if your working, DHL love to hire on call people and when they say on call....Its really on call. One month you have health benefits, and pay is good.. The next month your struggle to make ends meat, and your on cobra for $600 a month. DHL love keeping Wall Street (Slave Drivers Of The System) happy. It's not right that a company that Profits BILLIONS and BILLIONS. Can't even...

      Advice to Management

      If any one really cared, keep workers health benefits, going month to month, give your on call worker a minimum weekly pay. That do a drop in the bucket compared to what you are profit.

      Pros

      High energy company who encourage staff to do the best they can and also offer great prospects for internal promotions and progression.

      Cons

      There were no real cons, sometime the hours varied, but like all logistic companies that is to be expected. Days are long but that is it.

      Advice to Management

      Always treat people how you would be like to be treated yourself
