Manual unloader at DPD

Job description

Get to work at DPD's sorting facility in Oirschot! Earn €414-477 NET/week, no experience needed! Work is divided into 3 shifts, including early morning and night.

As a manual unloader, 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. Once packages are unloaded, they enter a high-tech fully automatic sorting machine. They then end up on a conveyor belt leading to postal trucks, where the packages are loaded again. On average, each package spends only 2,5 minutes inside the building! Depending on your location, you may occasionally need to lift packages of up to 30kg.

For safety reasons, it's important that you understand English or Dutch at a B1 level or better. You'll also need to be concentrated while working, so you don't make any errors in labeling packages or loading the postal trucks. 

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 have a driver's license (Category B) and live in our company housing, you can earn extra money to drive yourself and co-workers to work with a company car. You can earn a bonus of up to €40 NET/week by doing this.
