DHL in our area has both Teamster employees and subcontractors who deiver in remote areasdouble_standard said:dhl drivers are not hourly employees.They are contractors.They must purchase and maintain thier own trucks,get no holidays and no benfits .
They get paid by the package.I`m not sure of the amount.If they take a holiday, thier replacement must be dhl certified.There is a lawsuit against dhl right now by contracters who believe they are indeed employees and deserve the benefits they are entitled to.
because DHL is so horrific, even the teamsters are better.Here their hourly but are still trying to get into the teamsters. Don't know why.
Im a former airborne express and current dhl driver and a local 25 teamster .top rate in the boston metroplex is twenty two dollars and change per hour .The non union drivers make far less .As a dhl driver i can say for sure that i would never ship anything with the pathetic piece of **** company i work for .If you want to send somthing cheap go with the clown but if it has to get there ship with brown.Dhl drivers should make thirty dollars a hour just for having to put a yellow and red clown shirt on everyday .i was curious to know if anybody knows what the top pay was at dhl,and if is the same like ups after 2 years do u make top sal
dhl is a complete and utter mess .believe me when i tell you that ups and fedex have absolutly nothing to worry about .we still cant get uniforms in american sizes after three years .everything is international sizes and everything shrinks down to guys that look like they have on belly shirts .We have all former ups sups who were fired from ups .hmmm, DHL has very good transit times. It is taking them 3 days to get from west coast to back east. This is one of the reasons they are getting volume from ups and fedex. Do you know how they are doing this. Yep, they are flying groung packages on their planes. It doesnt take a brain to figure out that this isnt going to work forever and they will have to stop this. If they have so much room in their planes for ground, it doesnt say much about their air volume.
