Being a warehouse material handler at Dot Foods can be hard work. And the job description of being able to lift up to 60 pounds can be intimidating. That’s why, at Dot Foods Mt. Sterling, we offer what is known as the “Light-Pick Zone.”
In the Light-Pick Zone, the average case weight is 11 pounds. While you still have to be able to lift up to 35 pounds, the majority of the products you pick will be around 11 pounds.
All light-pick material handlers still operate the same forklifts as a “regular” warehouse material handler. You just conduct your job in areas of the warehouse where we stock lower-weight items.
Schedule & Job Options
As a light-pick warehouse material handler, you still have the same schedule options and flexibility as a “regular” warehouse material handler. We have day and night shifts available, including four 10-hours shifts per week or three 12-hour shifts per week. You’ll also be able to work in the dry or frozen warehouses.
There are great career opportunities in the Dot warehouse no matter where you work. Don’t think you’re ever going to want to move out of the Light-Pick Zone? That’s great! You can still find ample career growth no matter how much the items you are picking weigh.
That being said, it is common for warehouse material handlers who start in the Light-Pick Zone to build up their strength and stamina, and decide to move into the rest of the warehouse. With heavier items comes more pay and further opportunities for growth.

In order to be a warehouse material handler at any Dot location, you must:
- Be 18 years of age or older
- Able to pass a standard physical abilities test to ensure you can meet the physical demands of the job
- Have sufficient vision and hearing necessary to operate powered equipment safely
- Have a good attendance record
