How to Get Hired
We asked DHL Express U.S. (Express US) for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
Whether you're a global manager or a marketing assistant, operating a forklift or answering customer inquiries, we never forget that it's our employees who make us who we are. Therefore all DHL Express employees, regardless of their position at the company, share four key attributes: Passion, Speed, and Can Do attitudes committed to getting it Right the First Time. Our corporate culture is based on Respect and Results and a fundamental personal commitment – to our business, to each other and to our global communities.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
At DHL Express each employee’s individual contributions is what make us the #1 Express Deliveries and Logistics Company in the world. Our solutions are powered by trade, logistics and the drive and passion of all our employees. Our “insanely customer-centric” model won’t work if our employees don’t exude these values. So, what can prospective employees do to get our attention? Simple, be yourself throughout the interview process! Our business will only be successful, our customers will only be satisfied and you’ll only be happy if enthusiasm, pride in providing great service quality and a commitment to going the extra mile for others is at your core.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We are always looking for top talent to join the team in a wide variety of levels, specialties and locations. We are a logistics company at heart of course, so operations workers (dockworkers, clearance agents, drivers, couriers, supervisors, etc.) make up the largest part of our workforce. We are also growing our sales force so we have needs for field and direct channel sales professionals who are ready to sell the best solutions in the business. We operate a world-class customer relations center in Tempe, and invite the insanely customer-centric to apply!
