TOTAL PERSONNEL CHAOS IN DHL

This story started at the end of 2008. I was resigning from one company that deals with transportation between Russia and Ossetia. As many others – I was looking for a better job and I was also tired of working on “GAZel” (Russian mini-bus). I have chosen a large respected company – CJSC DHL International. Only later I understood that it is “a full fucking International”. I was thoroughly collecting all references and documents of medical examination as I have never worked before in such a large company. Moreover, I really appreciated the conditions I was offered: good car fleet, nutrition, official uniform, employment benefits, good stable salary. Just a dream! So I collected all the documents and fulfilled work during the probation period. I started to work and receive money for my work. First time I got very tired. Moscow roads – you understand. But I stayed tolerant as I was paid money! It was time for my first vacation in this company. I was allowed to have vacation, what else could they do – it is done this way almost everywhere.
