Graduate, Bellshill at DHL Supply Chain

Application Advice:

Do your research on the company, speak enthusiastically about them and yourself. Helps to have some prior insight into the industry.

Interview Advice:

The assessment day can be daunting, treat it almost like a performance- constantly energetic and enthusiastic. For interviews it's strength based, so construct answers where your skills can be transferred into the job. Asked a lot about myself, rather than the company. Fun group activities is all about showing an ability to work in teams.

Be yourself. The process is very good at noticing when you are not being authentic and to DHL Supply Chain, that's what matters.

Application Advice:

Application has changed since I applied - some general advice is to make sure you stand out and be unique (it's very easy to get lost when 2000+ people are applying).

Interview Advice:

The main tip for the assessment centre is to be sociable and interact - the team love those who can hold a good conversation/are a people person.

Questions for me included - why DHL, describe your typical weekend, how do you cope with conflict and how would you describe working in logistics to your friends.

Transport Manager, Transport at DHL Supply Chain

Application Advice:

The online portion of the application is pretty similar to the generic grad scheme process - if you are nervous about those then practice or put some of the companies you are least excited to work for first so that you get used to the process.

Interview Advice:

In my experience at interview and supporting the recruitment events everyone wants you to succeed, no one is trying to trip you up (it felt like that in some of the other grad interviews I attended). I even had a coughing fit in the middle of my interview but because there are lots of different components to the assessment day (teamwork etc.) even if you mess one up you still have the chance to impress elsewhere and a solid chance to get recruited.

Business Process Quality and Improvement, Network Logistics & Transport at DHL Supply Chain
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

I would first say relax and be yourself, it really isn't as daunting as you may at first think.

In terms of preparation, I would focus on the DHL strategies, 2020 and 2025, because you will be asked about these at some point in the application process. Here I would be thinking about how you view these and how you may have demonstrated these in the past.

I would also research the company and the customers we work with, this is a really interesting part of working for DHL and will also show your interest and passion for our business.

Interview Advice:

Really think about why you want to work in Supply Chain, what the environment is like, what skills you will need and what values are important in this industry, then apply this to yourself and think of times in which you have demonstrated these qualities.
Also think about the company strategy 2025 and what this means to you.

Interview Advice: Have plenty of anecdotes to back your answers to interview questions and use the STAR method to communicate them effectively. (Situation, Task, Action & Result).

First Line Manager, Operations at DHL Supply Chain
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

I know that it sounds obvious and is really boring to do but do your research. You don't have to know everything there is to know about the company but find something that excites you and dig a little deeper. If there's something that the company does that truly excites you and you can bring that up in your application. That passion will come through.

Also practice. The more practice tests, fake video interviews you do the more comfortable you will be doing them and the better your application will come across.

Interview Advice:

Take your time and explain your thinking/logic. The questions are broad and open-ended for a reason - the interviewers want to see how you think but they care less about being told all the things you've done. Definitely don't be afraid to show your achievements though.. use them to back up your point.

Ask questions! Ask questions about the programme, the roles you might get to do, the roles your interviewer's do, long term opportunities etc.. nothing shows that you want the role more. And react to the answers - if you're told something that sounds amazing, say so!

Application Advice:

When applying, your passion needs to come through - an individual who strives to achieve personal and professional excellence is an important attitude to have. The process involves a series of online tests and video interviews and the key is to be genuine and honest.
When applying to the DHL future leader's programme you may not have a directly applicable degree but as long as you show willingness and capability to learn and have relevant soft skills and basic understanding of the company, you will be fine.

Interview Advice:

I was asked questions such as:
Describe a time you were faced with a challenge and how you dealt with it?
What do you consider your greatest achievement to be?

There were some questions I did not have direct experience with as I came from a design-related background, however, whatever you do - do not just reply "I don't know, I have never experienced this". You can explain that you have never dealt with an experience that the interviewer described but then go on to describe how you would go about the situation if it were to arise. This shows the interviewer your thought processes in stressful situations.

Buyer, NHS Supply Chain at DHL Supply Chain
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Prepare by reading up on the company. It is such a large company with many divisions so make sure you are researching the right one , DHL Supply Chain and not another. It is also a global company and this programme is UK based so make sure any specific detail is looking at the UK. But it is also good to read up on DHL as a global company as having that knowledge can really help. Then using this knowledge to relate to your skills in the application will really help.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself. The assessment day is very relaxed and they really want to know about your life experience and your passion for joining the company. Being able to explain why you want to join and what passion you have for the role will really help.

Be yourself, breathe before answering a question, be honest and give as many practical examples as possible.
DON'T fight other candidates to be seen as that will look badly on you; show that you are listening to others and offer your own suggestions and opinion on things respectfully. Even if your team does not win a task/activity does not mean you won't get the job - my group failed every single test! It is all about communication, respect and personality.

Application Advice:

Show an interest in both DHL Supply Chain and the Logistics industry. They are open-minded to the subject of the degree that you have, so don't be caught up on whether your degree is directly appropriate. Always show enthusiasm when answering questions as they look for keen individuals.

Interview is in the form of an assessment center/experience day. Day made up of 2 group tasks, an individual presentation and a 1-2-1 interview. Group tasks are looking for active leadership, teamwork and communication, so be sure to always give your input into the scenario. Timekeeping is vital during these tasks. The presentation is highlighting your communication skills and the ability to stick to the task and deal with on-the-spot questions. They are not assessing the material of the presentation itself, so don't be caught up on this. The interview will require lots of examples from your past experiences (not just work - uni, school, part-time jobs, hobbies). Be confident and make the most of being able to talk to other candidates, current graduates and assessors.

Great thing about the process is that there are multiple opportunities to showcase what you have to offer the company. It isn't all on one pitch or one interview, and no-one is trying to trip you up; just trying to give you the opportunity to share what you have to offer. Just approach it like that and enjoy the assessment centre day.

Application Advice:

This graduate scheme is a good place to get exposure to the logistics industry but it is not an accelerated start scheme. Any applicants must be prepared to fight hard to get the experience they want and should not expect there to be the structure to support their ambitions.

Interview Advice:

On your assessment day you will be asked to complete a series of exercises from demonstrating your ability to think quickly, collaborate and present your findings. Speak up but be yourself. They are not looking for the loudest voice in the room.

For the interview itself the most important question to answer is why you want to join the logistics industry and DHL in particular. Do your homework on DHL.

Application Advice:

When I applied I had no logistic experience, however I showed I was hard working, committed and forward thinking which stood me in good stead. As I was applying for a graduate management scheme showing that I had good leadership experience and was well organised was key.

Interview Advice:

DHL likes 'real', 'salt of the earth', 'hard working' people. There is no need to put on airs and graces or be pretentious. The company wants to see that you are willing, able and will get on with people.

Many of the top level guys worked themselves from the bottom up so although they appreciate the value of bright people they won't be interested in your academic studies. Talk about 'real life' or 'business' experience rather than how many A levels you have or the 'first' you are currently on track for.

If I could give one bit of advice it would be ask the interviewer (or anyone you meet in the business) how they got to where they did career wise... Everyone loves to talk about themselves and if your asking them it makes it appear you value what they have to say. Make sure you ask a follow up question to show you have been listening. E.G. you mentioned that you had experience starting up a new warehouse, can you tell me more about that? It sounded really interesting.

Graduate, at DHL Supply Chain

Application Advice:

Be honest about previous experience, the company anticipates you having little relevant knowledge and is looking for core competencies to develop rather than definitive experience.

Interview Advice:

The interviewers are almost always people who work in regular roles within the businesses, not defined human resource members. Therefore although they will have interviewing experience, they are not expecting well oiled answers, more honest answers. Don't be afraid to ask the interviewer questions. As much as possible remain relaxed, and enjoy the experience. Almost cliche, but sound advice!

Be yourself, be confident and understand that we aren't looking for a group of people who have done it before, but people that will get stuck in, show their commitment to what they are doing, be able to think about problems logically and work with others to come to a simple solution that works for both our customers and for DHL.

Due to the nature of the business the experience varies a lot depending on the role you are in and the operation you are attached to - its not a bad thing in itself but you do need to be open to trying things that are outside your wheelhouse or you won't enjoy the graduate scheme.

There is a real community feel amongst such a large company and brand. There are plenty of support networks and training available to help improve yourself and how you develop others around you.

Worst:

It is difficult and slightly intimidating to make your own mark when the company is so large.

Size, scale and continually improving culture. DHL are the biggest logistics company in the world meaning there are unlimited opportunities, and the company is doing a lot of work to improve its corporate culture and bring all sites up to a standard level.

Worst:

As it is such a big company, some sites are left behind others and do not develop at the same speed, leaving variation in standards between sites - although this can be seen as an opportunity to implement improvement opportunities.

Best:

Massive amount of opportunities to progress and a good 8% pension.

Worst:

Locations available and the slow pay rise over time (limited to 9% per performance review). A salary increase from 25k to 35k will take roughly a year if you meet all targets so some people find this frustrating as they are doing the job to the standard of someone on 35k yet don't get the full pay. It's to stop corruption so it has and good underlying principle though.
