A lot of heavy weighting, and very lonely

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I do think that for someone who doesn't mind lifting hundreds of kilos for one day, but if you do just stay away. The shift was 8h and that's a normal full-time one. The job is very far away for a student

Hello,Thank you for your input. We are happy you are recognizing an excellent satisfaction on some topics such as the work-life balance or our company culture.On the constructive site, being a transfer agent can be a physically demanding position and very important to our business operations. It is hence crucial that our employees there get all the support and appreciation they need, especially from their management. We always try to do better, to continuously improve every part of our organization, including the managerial structure. For this reason we rely on our employees to come forward with constructive criticism and improvement feedback. Nevertheless, thank you for all your hard work and effort while working for us - we sincerely appreciate it.We wish you and your loved ones all the best,Your DHL Team

I don't have enough information about this job because I will start it next week

Next week I will start my job by this reason I don't know what is a typical work day at DHL. The day of my on-side interview I had a nice impression about the people at the workplace. Than I expect for a friendly environment and much job.

Pros

The Company in general people, distance at my home, salary, working hours...

Cons

I don't know yet

Hello,We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience as a former employee of DHL with us. A realistic schedule that is adapted to the employees should always be part of the work planning. I'm sorry we couldn't do justice to this in your case. Discrimination is a serious issue. As an employer, we have a duty to ensure that all employees in our teams are treated equally fairly. We regret that you were not satisfied with your work in our company.Thank you for the terrific job you have done during your time at DHL in Mechelen.Greetings and stay safe!Your DHL Team

As one?! If you're one of the happy few..

If you stand there every day shouting that you are the best, eventually people will start to believe it. Give people bread and butter and they are happy. On rewards and incentives no complaining. Unfortunately, that's a curtain call. The discrepancy between the vision of headquarters and the operation at BruHub is unimaginable. Not even talking about the different treatment of a "CIM" and a "CIS" employer. If the packages are out on time, everything is fine. The fact that employees are leaving almost as fast is just a footnote. But don't panic, we'll turn it around, DHL-style: "We provide jobs, look how many new employees we keep hiring." ....

Pros

Parfois, les chefs d'équipes veulent fouir les nouveaux en les laissant s'occuper de tâches très lourds à faire.

Great workplace with awesome colleagues

DHL is a great company to work for. It's a huge employer so it's always possible to find symphatic people to socialize with and since it's a very very international company there are a lot of interesting people. There are also enough opportunities to grow and change job within the company. Transportation and logistics is not a well paid industry in general, DHL salaries are more or less in line with the competition.Restructuring happens once in while but if one has some useful education or work experience than a shift within the company is encouraged ( it's also cheaper for the company).The colleagues are most of the time supportive and social.

Pros

great colleagues, interesting job

Cons

Degelijk salaris, goede opleiding

Fijne collega's maar management niet steeds even optimaal

Veel te slecht betaald en weinig uren.

Minimum 8u per dag eisen als je bij DHL wilt werken.

Société discriminante

Entreprise discriminative, qui n'apprécie pas les compétences, expérience et niveau d'étude. Les promotions se font à la tête du client et surtout les amis des dirigeants. L'entreprise est en sous effectif (donc un ouvrier fait le travail de plusieurs personnes) parce que personne reste longtemps travailler chez DHL Aviation.

Gezellige Sfeer

Aangenaam bedrijf met mogelijkheden om door te groeien

Pression et différences entre intérim et fixe

Les intérimaires sont pressées et menacées (poliment) pour prester au maximum pendant que les contrats fixes se cachent (littéralement) aux toilettes ou ailleurs pour éviter la charge de travail. On vous fait miroiter un contrat fixe en échange d’heures supplémentaires. Sinon le salaire est correct et bcp d’avantages extralegaux quand on as un cdi.

Pros

Eau, café, thé gratuit
