    They take you over to a boot store in Quincy, IL to buy boots. DOT gives you a voucher & it covers the cost of steel toed boots/shoes. After initial hiring you get a yearly boot allowance.

    They give you 3 polo shirts at training, you buy additional shirts you want, they do payroll deduction for DOT apparel or safety gear like winter boot spikes. Not really an official dress code other than the DOT shirt with their logo on it. Dress presentable. Safety boots/shoes required when inside your trailer or @ a delivery.

    They strongly suggest your DOT shirt while working. Polo is probably not the correct term, let’s say it’s a colored t-shirt with a DOT logo. After your initial 3 free shirts you have the option of putting your first or last name on your shirts for additional cost. Orientation is casual dress. Presentable . No cutoff shorts and crocs or flip flops. The office staff dress casual professional M-Th, & casual on Friday.

    I believe about $10 a shirt. Any apparel they can do payroll deduction for, Spread it over 2-3 paydays. You get 3 free shirts every year. If you don’t use your boot allowance each year you can buy apparel with that money also.
