Today is Eric complain day. I went to the San Francisco DHL office to pick up a package, and the driver for my neighborhood told me that DHL has cut a lot of the drivers and office staff, and that it ultimately "affects the customers more than it does [the staff]."
"I called you on Tuesday to attempt delivery," she said.
What I'm wondering is why that was the first and last attempt.
My package had a delivery attempt on July 28, and no reattempts thereafter. The phone at DHL's SF office (which is housed in a trailer right now) rings off the hook, and has been doing so for more than 2 days. Even DHL headquarters can't reach them; I spoke with several service agents by phone (all excellent, by the way) who said that SF was unreachable by both phone and internal messaging system.
3:22pm "A supervisor will call you within 30 minutes."
5:15pm "A supervisor never called you?"
I suggest avoiding DHL if you live in San Francisco. I had to physically go to their trailer/office in order to find out what was going on with my package, which arrived barely in one piece, with a big hole in the side.
