    I have been working at DHL Express full-time

    Pros

    - 3 weeks PTO given at beginning of year - Not very cut throat - Good training program for new employees - Cafe on site

    Cons

    - Certain heavyweight shipments the company allows you to sell to customers but does not pay you on them. Baffling that they can get away with this. Its genius for the company, they let you sell and they get the revenue but don't pay the sales rep. - Recent changes make hitting commission WAY harder - Management took away ability to work OT - Low base salary of 35k - Quarterly commissions (miss commission one quarter...

    Advice to Management

    - Bring back heavyweight so sales force can sell a competitive advantage again. Right now UPS and FedEx can do everything we can do + they sell domestic! - Pay employees competitive wages (base salary for inside sales at DHL is roughly 10k lower than what FedEx offers its employees) - Improve the terrible morale amongst the floor by bringing back everything that once made DHL a great place to work - Be transparent....

    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
