Part-time unloader at DPD

Job description

This part-time job is perfectly suited for students who enjoy physical work. Work evenings or nights and earn a nice salary unloading postal trucks for the biggest postal hub of Europe, located in Oirschot (NL).

This postal facility is, in fact, a hyper-modern, automated sorting hub. Employees unload the packages onto a conveyor belt, after which they are sorted fully automatically and end up at the next postal truck. Here, the packages are loaded by employees and sent off to their next destination. On average, each package spends only 2,5 minutes inside the building!

As a manual unloader you will be unloading and loading the postal trucks with packages sent by webshops and private people. You will place or receive the packages from a conveyer belt (Caljan) that can be extended until the back of the postal truck. It's also hight adjustable, so smart use of this tool will help you work without too much effort.

You'll make sure that all packages are labeled, so they can be read by a scanner inside the postal facility. Working in this position means that you have to be on your feet (literally) at all times. It's important to concentrate at all times so that you don't make any errors in labeling packages or loading the postal trucks. For safety reasons, it's important that you understand English or Dutch at a B1 level.

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 €15,20!).
