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.

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!

Application Advice:

If you want a company with a lot of scale, that has lots of different opportunities, lots of areas to experience and complexities to overcome then it is definitely the right place for you. DHL is a challenging environment with enough diversity to keep you engaged.

Interview 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.

The size of the company. It is larger than any external candidate can imagine. Also the culture - almost everyone is happy to have help you in with career, give advice and put you in contact with prospective employers within the company.

Worst:

The processes to get things done in some cases - such as IT issues, finance issues. Due to the size of the company is can sometimes take a long time to receive certain approvals.

Working as a graduate you gain a lot of extra training modules which you wouldn't receive if you were just in a standard role

Worst:

Some sites have a lot of long serving employees, therefore going in as a young, enthusiastic graduate can on occasion get peoples guards up.

If you have to do shift work, hours can be disruptive

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.
