What Can Dot Transportation Offer You? Take a Look!
Looking for a change? Dot Transportation is the place for you. Dot is an affiliate of Dot Foods, the largest food industry redistributor in North America. As our business grows, we’re looking to hire great people just like you.
So why should you make a change? Well, driving for Dot isn’t like driving for other truck companies. Let’s break some of the things that Dot can do for you.
Some trucking companies draw drivers in by offering a higher per-mile rate but without a guarantee on how many miles you actually get to drive. At Dot Transportation, we don’t dupe our drivers. We keep it transparent. Here, the average truck driver salary is $80,000 per year for a full-time driver.
Plus, we offer tuition reimbursement for new hires who have completed their driver training within the last three years, as well as a VA-approved apprenticeship.
Best-In-Class Truck Driver Benefits
Dot Transportation takes pride in our ability to provide our employees with excellent compensation and benefits. In addition to salary, our drivers receive a benefits package worth over $22,000. Truck driver benefits from Dot feature a comprehensive medical plan, including vision and dental.
Dot also offers a 401k retirement plan with company match and a generous profit-sharing plan. And, with our company bonus program, employees share in Dot Transportation’s prosperity. Our drivers regularly receive bonuses for achieving profit, service and department goals.
Better Schedule Options and More Home Time
As a private carrier that hauls its own freight, Dot is better able to offer drivers the home time they and their families need.
We know that the truck driver lifestyle can make it hard to get consistent time at home, particularly when you work for the wrong trucking company. That’s why we offer schedule options like four days on, four days off and others to give our drivers the flexibility they need.
Plus, all our runs are round-trip dispatch. That means no long layovers and the security of knowing you’ll be able to log enough miles to earn the money you need each week. You’ll know your entire route, and the day you’ll be back home.
The bottom line? You’re never just a number at Dot. We’re a family-owned company with managers and dispatchers who make it a priority to get to know their drivers and their family’s needs. We understand the importance of time at home and will help our drivers schedule around important family events.
As a Dot Transportation driver, you drive our world-class Volvo fleet. Our trucks are meticulously maintained in our own garages by in-house mechanics. So anytime you have an issue with your truck you simply let your DTI mechanic know, and they fix it.
Attention to detail and careful maintenance of our fleet is more than part of the key to our success – it also keeps our drivers safer. In fact, Dot Transportation is an industry leader in lack of personal injury to our drivers.
It’s simple. Dot Transportation isn’t like driving for other truck companies
You’ll get great pay, awesome benefits, schedule options, plus time for you and your family.
