    I worked at DHL Express full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The pay was decent, for the easiness of the job. However you’d often work 10+ hrs a day 5 days per week, and won’t get any overtime from it.

    Cons

    You can’t leave your duty city until 5pm each day, which means you must must sit in your van waiting from 2pm some days until you can even head back to the warehouse. My city was 40 minutes away, so I had to wait until rush hr before heading back to okc... sucked. Some people I worked with had a duty city of Tecumseh, Lawton, or even Stillwater. They couldn’t make it back to the warehouse until 730pm every day.

    Advice to Management

    Change it. Give drivers the option to take management rolls. Force out old management when they become too comfortable, and lax. Allow growth no matter what position you’re in.

    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.
