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 material handler 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.
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 Material Handler Positions
The warehouse material handler job at Dot is a large umbrella job that covers a wide variety of specific job duties. Not all material handlers 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.
Pick cases in our warehouse based on a list provided at the beginning of your shift. You ensure the right products and correct quantities are delivered to the customer.
Loading & Receiving
Work on Dot’s docks unloading product from suppliers’ trucks and loading product onto Dot trucks.
Move product to and from various locations in the warehouse to help set your colleagues up for success.
Three Different Warehouse Environments
At all Dot locations, there are three different warehouse environments—or “temps,” as we like to call them. Here’s a breakdown of what you need to know about each one:
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.
