We wanted to know what employees had to say about working here. Here is what we found when we reviewed glassdoor.com:
DHL was rated at 3.8 out of 5 stars. Apparently the score comes from having the ability to advance and a great work environment. However, if you don’t like a lot of overtime or constant change, this may not be a good company for you.
What felonies DHL will not hire
We don’t know! There are bound to be some, but they didn’t share which with us. See the next section for what our research suggested.
What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
A few convictions we feel might stand in your way are as follows:
- A theft crime, including identity theft, may make getting your foot in the door extremely difficult. Packages being delivered to individuals and companies will be the responsibility of DHL, so they will take extra steps to protect them.
- Driving offenses such as DUI or DWI are something that will be looked at closely if you’re applying for a driving position.
- Violent or sexual crimes will also be looked upon harder for certain positions. If you’re applying for a job that interacts with the public, these offenses may limit your chances.
Does DHL hire sex offenders?
We don’t know for sure, but have our doubts based on our research.
