Dot Foods Warehouse

What It’s Like in the Dot Foods Warehouse


Products are being moved, forklifts are moving up and down aisles, trucks are being loaded and unloaded, and so much more. No day is the same. That’s what you can expect when working in the Dot warehouse.


As a warehouse worker in the warehouse, you’ll be lifting, pushing, and pulling around 1,500 cases, bags, and buckets per shift. The average case weight for these products is around 13.6 pounds.

Safety-First Mindset

Having so many moving parts in our warehouses means that having a safety-first mindset is essential to keeping yourself and your colleagues safe. You’ll go through training with us so you can feel confident moving throughout the aisles.

Specialized Warehouse Worker Positions

The warehouse worker job at Dot is a large umbrella job that covers a wide variety of specific job duties. Not all warehouse workers do the same job. After you’ve graduated from your initial training period with Dot, you’ll learn the ins and out of more specialized positions. Once you are trained on all of the different machines in Dot’s warehouse, you’ll be put into a rotation so you won’t have to do the same thing every shift.

Three Different Warehouse Environments

At all Dot locations, there are three different warehouse environments—or “temps,” as we like to call them. In most locations, a worker might be required to spend time in one, two, or all three temps in a given shift. However, because Mt. Sterling’s warehouse is so large by comparison, each temp has its own team (dry workers work solely in the dry warehouse, refrigerated in the refrigerated, etc.).


The dry warehouse is cooler in the winter and warmer in the summer months.


The refrigerated warehouse is kept at around 37 degrees. While you may feel the need to wear an extra layer, you won’t need a freezer suit.

The frozen warehouse is maintained at -5 degrees. All frozen warehouse employees must wear a freezer suit and other protective gear provided by Dot.
