    I have been working at DHL Global Forwarding, Freight full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Benefits range from three affordable packages that are available within the month of hire date. Higher paying job based on the the area. Oppurtunity to move within the company.

    Cons

    Not an easy workday is a challenge. Efficiency varies from station to station. There is a big job turnover there so there is not a lot of fluidity within the work space at times.

    I worked at DHL Global Forwarding, Freight full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Normal day you come in; clock in; process shipments; and do your 8 hours. You are entitle to 1 hr overtime to finish up anything over that the supervisor has ro approve it due to union seniority. Union contract does provide good benefits; monthly fees are reasonable. If your there for a long time company tends to buy you out to retire.

    Cons

    Job security is the biggest issue. Yearly basis they have lay offs regardless of the company economic situation. Regardless of union rules they still tend to lay off employees. Union will file grievence but union will keep most of the money if your awarded compensation.
