What people are saying about sick pay at DHL

  • Best thing


    Worst thing

    No breaks work load can be very stressful


    DHL Warehouse operative, December 2022

  • Best thing


    Worst thing

    Having to work through breaks falsifying taking breaks


    DHL Courier, August 2022

  • Best thing

    Amazing team, very decent pay, work load is perfect, positive environment and understanding managers

    Worst thing

    If I had to say something, we get a 30 min unpaid break but generally we work through that break (which is our lunch). To counteract this I take three 10 min fag breaks so it’s not an issue at all!
