Manual unloader at DPD

Job description

Get to work at DPD’s sorting facility in Oirschot! Earn up to €516 NET/week – or even up to  €628 if you’re a student (perfect vacation job!) –  no experience needed!
Work is divided into 2 shifts , including afternoon and night. You’ll use a special conveyer belt (Caljan) to load and unload packages from postal trucks. Smart use of this tool will help make the work much less heavy. You may lift packages of up to 30kg (only occasionally!), depending on your department.
It’s important to focus while working so you don’t make mistakes – but overall this job is not complicated . You’ll pick it up quickly and can build a nice routine.
As a reward for your work, you’ll receive a good salary; especially when working in the evening, at night, or during weekends, which gives you a fat bonus (up to 50% extra, making the hourly wage up to €15,90!).

If you live in our housing, you can earn a bonus of up to €40 NET/week for driving yourself and co-workers to work in a company car.
