I feel blessed to have chosen Dot Foods as my first company, I couldn’t be happier. It’s been over 1 year now and with many more to come. Breaking down freight can be brutal at times but you are paid generously for it. The health insurance, pay, and other benefits are top notch for the work we do. Dot Foods is continuously growing and I feel proud to be a part of it. I feel for other drivers struggling at other companies and it really doesn’t have to be that way. It takes time to become proficient at Dot Foods, but the training/trainers are probably some of the best in the industry. No company is all Unicorns and Rainbows but Dot Foods truly does try hard and comes close.
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 :)
