DHL

Forklift operator

June - August 2019 • Terrell, TX

What I liked

It was a fast paced and physically active job experience, and it was a great way to get your foot in the door if you really want to understand the base levels of supply chain. I also liked that I was able to work Sunday-Wednesday and have Thursday-Saturday off of work.

What I wish was different

I wish that the hours were different. I worked long 10 hour shifts with only an hour of rest split up into an unpaid lunch and two small breaks. Once again, the job is demanding and difficult, but a rewarding and humbling experience.

Advice

I would say to have a positive attitude and remember that many companies promote from within. If you do a great job and earn a degree, you can easily begin to move your way up to a supervisor, office worker, Intern, or one day a GM. We all have to start somewhere.

Operations Intern

May - August 2019 • Southaven, MS

What I liked

We got to work on a hands on project that we were able to present at Headquaters. It was an amazing experience that really gave you an insight of the position you may have with DHL. It also was a way to meet other interns in the area.

What I wish was different

I wish that my specific sight was prepared for an intern, but it was okay because of the large Capstone project we had to complete.

Advice

Take advantage of every moment and ask questions. At the Capstone Event you will meet with an amazing network that can open many doors.
