DHL bought out Airborne EXPRESS. We got flight benefits at that time. Everyone was happy to be at work . Moving a great service, I only regret that UPS stepped in and that was the end of my job of 16 years. I don't cry because it is over, I smile because it happened.

Pros and Cons
Occasional lunches, birthday party, and office party
the job ended

Would have stayed forever but management made a bold move to get out of the domestic market and focus only on international business. When DHL chose this direction, they cut 95% of the sales force.

Pros and Cons
Great team atmosphere
Limited to international only
