Dear colleague,Thank you so much for your kind words. We offer a flexible work schedule to help employees better balance their personal and professional lives. Having flexible hours boosts productivity and has the potential to boost employee job satisfaction.A desirable work-life balance reduces an individual's concern about managing work and non-work commitments. We're glad to hear that this is the case at your location.Finding, retaining, and developing great people is difficult, but finding, retaining, and developing great managers is even more difficult.The fact that you felt the management was unprofessional is cause for concern, and we will investigate.Thank you very much for being a part of our DHL family and for your efforts to make our company the world leader in logistics. #TogetherWeAreGREAT!In the meantime, we wish you all the best and thank you for your excellent work!Your DHL Team

Free Site lunch every month for all employees full time or casual, good teams, and great management. Unfortunately I have to leave due to family circumstances.

Everyone deserves to know the truth then it’s up to each person to decide!! Dhl express

Well I spent almost 14 years at Dhl express working at all sites in Melbourne especially at south east in Mount Waverley and SO SAD to say it’s another one of those companies like most if you ask questions or challenge the management team in any way even after over a decade of service to the company YOU ARE A MARKED TARGET to performance base you out so bad , and being a Christian in that place from the beginning was hard to say the least always picked on for my strong godly beliefs and the worst of all instead of promoting and looking after there workers who have been there a long time even to this day the hire from outside the company fresh people so the management team can control the company even more in a even greater toxic way the place is very very toxic .

Pros

Not much worthy to mention, if you want to work in a dirty environment mental, physical, emotional then go work for Dhl ..

Cons

Too much to mention, if you want to be more down it life and be lied to to your place picked on for your godly benefits, and watch unjust happen right before you eyes then go right ahead and work at Dhl it’s, gone from bad to badness to even worst down down down !!

Best thing I did was leave

One piece of advise is to avoid the place. Especially if you apply for a customer service role under Direct to Market at Number 5. The so called National Service Manager is the rudest person ever. She talks down to everyone like they are stupid and all she does is talk behind you back. Avoid at all circumstances!!! Everyone is scared to raise anything about her as she will probably fire you.

Over employment, was looking for work most days. I found myself busy only three days a week and felt my day dragged on because of lack of work. Very charitable organise though which I appreciated.

lack of work

Great company to work for

Excellent work practices, well refined and developed policies, protocols and procedures, Advanced technology systems. very good environment to work in. Overall excellent company to work for, my only gripe would be having to work long hours to be able to make a decent wage.

Best place to work

There is nothing to fault about working for DHL. I love the work culture and the people I worked with. I actually loved going to work everyday. The help is always there when needed even when you don't need it.

Pros

Free lunches, benefits and environment

Amazing culture and a company that actually invests in their staff

DHL is ranked as one of the best employers and it's actually really great. The culture is awesome, there's always lots of fun stuff going on and they really try to lessen the pain of working in a call centre. The salary is pretty decent and there's lots of ways to earn little bonuses. They train you for 6 weeks so that you're really ready for the job when you get out on the floor. They also really promote progression - pretty much everyone in management/higher level roles started at entry level and worked their way up. I was also going through some mental health struggles while working there and they were incredibly supportive in working with me to find a way to manage it. Ultimately I had to leave anyway but I really appreciated everything they did for me.

Pros

Super supportive workplace, nice pay and benefits, fun team

Cons

Fairly gruelling call volumes in frontline, repetitive work
