    I worked at DHL Supply Chain full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They give you the truck and it is on your shoulders to make everything happen. Good drivers are entrusted with a lot of responsibilities. Management stays out of your hair and they give you the tools to succeed.

    Cons

    Don't work there if you can't work alone, independently, with out supervision in OTR. DHL has other jobs that offer a lot of supervision.

    Advice to Management

    You guys are totally awesome.

    I have been working at DHL Supply Chain full-time

    Pros

    Ever changing atmosphere. Many great people to work with and to grow with while offering lots of opportunities to learn and develope yourself and your team.

    Cons

    Pay scale. Many things have been removed from the Supervisor level which makes the turn over higher.

    Advice to Management

    Add back the incentives for Supervisors...the company prides itself on the incentives that are given to hourly associates to offset the pay rate and the bonuses are still there for upper management...you have taken away so much from the heart of the front line work force....the Supervisor.

    I have been working at DHL Supply Chain full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Seasonal pay, can have good hours

    Cons

    Terrible work/life balance, horrible management, poor coordination, no hope for transferring, favoritism, useless HR department. Overall boring with no sense of energy or fun during the holidays

    Advice to Management

    Have HR available 24hrs instead of in the early morning, because they never answer. Also place employees where they're supposed to be instead of dumping them in random positions that they weren't promised just to fill in spots. Have more breaks than just one 30 minute lunch break and also keep a time on how long employees are in the bathroom since they WILL hide in there just to escape work. Finally, have some sort of event or be more festive during holidays instead of working people to death.

    Great challenges. Team environment. Opportunities to advance and learn. Outstanding leadership.

    Cons

    Long hours. Fire-fighting mentality vs. fire prevention (at times).

    Advice to Management

    Expand educational opportunities.
