At Dot Foods, we take pride in the stability we offer our employees and their families. Since Dot’s founding in 1960, we have never had a layoff. Not once.
Almost 60 years later, Dot is still running strong and has become the largest food industry redistributor in North America. With consistent annual growth and constant development, driving for Dot gives you the opportunity to build a career—not just have a job.
From salary and benefits to weekly home time, right down to the equipment our drivers drive, Dot Transportation, Inc. (DTI) offers a great lifestyle and reputable job security—no matter your particular driving experience.
Our Dot Drivers
Dot values our drivers—and we appreciate your experience. We wouldn’t be able to offer our customers the services we do without having drivers to deliver our products on time and with outstanding customer service.
Drivers with over 200,000 miles of confirmed experience are compensated $1,000 per week of orientation and training.
From day one, you will get:
Your Own Truck
From the first day you start as a Dot driver, you will be given your own truck. That means no sharing space and having equipment consistency while you’re on the road.
Vacation Time Bridge
We will match the vacation time you were receiving at your last employer. Guaranteed.
You and your family will be covered by Dot’s health insurance—no questions asked.
Guaranteed First-Year Pay
We guarantee that we will have you on the road, driving enough miles and delivering enough loads to ensure you make our promised first-year pay amount.
DTI actively recruits from accredited truck driving schools nationwide, and we like to reimburse our new hires for their truck driving tuition.
If your schooling has been completed within the past three years at a Dot-approved institution, DTI will reimburse up to $7,000 of your tuition after 90 days of employment, over a three-year time period.
Once you are employed by DTI, you will find that we have one of the best finishing programs in the industry.
Student drivers are compensated $500 per week of orientation and training, which averages about 10 weeks.
Taking care of our employees and their families is vital to us. That’s why we are proud of our trucker compensation and benefits package. From salary and bonuses to our driving school reimbursement program, we are here to make sure you feel secure and supported.
Our benefits package features a comprehensive medical plan that includes vision and dental. We also offer all employees a 401(k) plan with company match and a generous profit sharing plan, all of which averages to a Dot contribution of about 7.5 percent per year.
We also know how important family is, so we work hard to ensure our drivers get home time each week. With our precise scheduling system, you will know your route and exactly which day you’ll be back home.
