On-Boarding
What will my first day look like?
While no two employees will have identical on-boarding experiences, we do have every employee go through a similar new employee orientation (NEO) course to learn all about the Dot Foods history, brand, and mission. Employees in every department are given a thorough and hands-on training spanning, in some cases, several weeks. We encourage every new hire to ask lots of questions as they get their feet wet. It’s our goal to give every employee a positive and beneficial on-boarding process as well as every chance to succeed within the company.
What is the dress code at Dot Foods?
Office employees adhere to a "dress for your day" policy which can include nice jeans, khaki slacks, or dress slacks for men and dress slacks, nice jeans, capri pants, or dresses/skirts for women. Tennis shoes are also permissable. Warehouse employees may wear shorts, jeans, t-shirts, sweatshirts, etc. and must wear steel-toed boots at all times. Those working in the frozen wearhouse must also wear the proper company-provided PPE.
What does warehouse training consist of?
Every DC is different, so a Mt. Sterling experience may differ greatly from that of a Liverpool or Williamsport experience, for  example. However, warehouse employees in every location must complete a thorough 90-day training program consisting of classroom instruction and on-site, hands-on involvement. We’ll also get you trained and certified on forklift operation so you won’t need to do that on your own time or pay for it out of pocket.
