    I worked at DHL Express full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Lots of hours available, work independently during the day, Union, great benefits package, democracy in the workplace

    Cons

    Plan to work long hours, especially during and after holidays, not a lot of family time, always cleaning up after less capable co-workers, low starting wage

    Advice to Management

    Go out on road more often to greater appreciate the difficulties drivers face within their specific routes

    I worked at DHL Express full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, my supervisor was the best, hourly wages good, even maintained friendship many years later.

    Cons

    DHL was purchased, changed too fast, then acquired Airborne. DHL lost a lot of respect as soon as they did that. The purchase of Airborne ruined the family atmosphere the employees had.

    Advice to Management

    Wish you could go back. Never had a more wonderful job since. Ask your DHL Legacy employees how to turn back time. They will know.

      I worked at DHL Express full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Benefits, but expensive, free uniforms, your own van and fuel card after training is completed, friendly Co workers and management

      Cons

      Hours were more than what was advertised. (Had to leave due to timing conflicts). Might have to return to warehouse to drop off pickups and head back out to complete your route, regardless of time. (Long hours). Sometimes heavy parcels and alot of deliveries
