    I have been working at DHL Supply Chain full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people; great knowledge of supply chain solutions; tons of opportunity for movement; excellent health care and great 401k match. Freedom to explore the business and try new things without corporate handcuffs

    Cons

    Pay is probably competitive but not exceptional; workload is tough depending on site and customer; easy to get consumed within a site and miss information about the greater company and what we are doing within North America or global level.

    Advice to Management

    If you want the best people, sometimes you need to pay for them. The idea of growing people internally into the best sounds great, but we don't have the right systems in place to make this happen. This goes for exempt and hourly. A lot of our top leaders are home-grown but buying the right skill set of a senior level exec from someone like an Amazon will keep this company in the forefront of the supply chain world.

    I worked at DHL Supply Chain full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only pro was the benefits were great. Other supervisors were cool to hang out with but not so much to work with.

    Cons

    Scheduled 4/10 but always ended up being a 14 hour day. Operation managers has favorites and no clear line of communication. Upper management wanted to have yes men/women not co-workers.

    Advice to Management

    Try working the floor for just one day. Don't expect to see change in people that very second. Fear from subordinates is not a good thing.
