I feel I made a good choice to have Dot Foods as my first company. Breaking down freight can be brutal at times but you are paid generously for it. The health insurance, pay, and other benefits are good for the work we do. Dot Foods is continuously growing. It takes time to become proficient at Dot Foods, but the training/trainers are probably some of the best. No company is all Unicorns and Rainbows but Dot Foods truly does try hard and comes close. If they were able to make No-Touch Positions more available I feel this could be a lifelong company.
I have good dispatch & management now. They are honest & up-front. I currently work 6 days per week but only spend 3 overnights in the truck. I've had good bonuses, I get 20days paid vacation, sick days, personal days, reimbursed up to $100 annually for safety shoes, well maintained equipment.
I have almost 30 behind the wheel and over half of those are with Dot. overall they're worth staying with but trust me your body pays the price of man handling 100,000+ pounds of groceries in a weeks time.
The equipment is knew and taken very good care of. They have four different pay plans depends on what you want to do. So far the managers have all been fair with me. The benefits are great.
Dot Foods is #1 in my book :)
