About this Location
Proud to be joining the Delaware community!
We have driving jobs for experienced and new drivers at a New Castle terminal today: those that handle freight and those that don’t, with schedule options that fit your lifestyle.
Drivers’ salaries are guaranteed in writing; experienced drivers who handle freight are guaranteed to earn $75,000 their first year, and those who do not touch freight are guaranteed $71,800. Experienced drivers also receive an assigned tractor on day one, vacation time match and health insurance gap coverage. All full-time employees receive a benefits package worth more than $20,000.
Dot plans to hire 50 drivers for the New Castle terminal location; those drivers will move to the Bear distribution center when it is up and running. In total, Dot will hire 125 people for warehouse, truck driver and administrative roles at its Bear facility within the first year and up to 200 by 2022.
The new Dot Foods Delaware distribution center will house main and outbuilding facilities totaling over 188,609 square feet. Dot Foods Delaware joins Dot’s two other facilities in the Northeast: Dot Foods Maryland, located in Williamsport and Dot Foods New York in Liverpool.
“Our drivers are a key part of our business, and we have some great opportunities at our newest location. We’re excited about the talent available in this area as we hire drivers, warehouse personnel and office staff.”
