    I have been working at DHL Express full-time

    Pros

    DHL Express has a amazing culture of "Respect and Results" driven strongly by the Global Management team through the specially designed, unique and industry leading "CIS" training programs

    Cons

    Not many negatives to say here ... but if had to note something it would be - Very long hours, and multi-multi-layers of lower and middle management encourage an awful lot of bureaucracy .. Top heavy and they all love a good spreadsheet and powerpoint ! but that being said, it's Top heavy with very good people ..

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what they are doing, the company culture is unique and based on a genuine and real care for employees all levels ..

      I have been working at DHL Express full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Decent benefits, good vacation, rewarding work, and good co-workers

      Cons

      Management is out of touch with what the agents actually want. Health insurance for a family breaks the bank. Long hours, some people in upper / middle management should not be in the positions they are in. When you point out issues they get brushed under the rug.

      Advice to Management

      Quit putting people who are not able to answer simple operational questions into a management role. After over a year in a group the leaders should all be able to answer simple questions.

        Approves of CEO

        I worked at DHL Express for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Good people to work with and good management seem to keep their people first in all aspects. Will work with time off and needs of employees

        Cons

        Long hours, working sun up till sun down most days and some weekend work. Large coverage area and low amount of drivers. Too many express packages and expedited deliveries on each route

        Advice to Management

        Have enough employees available to cover all areas adequately. Consider one driver for just express package delivery to small areas.
