    Pros

    Networking is easy. You gain a ton of experience and touch every department. You become involved in all aspects of the supply chain business which makes it easy to move into a new position.

    Cons

    Upper management is not very involved in the carrying out of daily activities. Much of the responsibility falls on the shoulders of those at the bottom.

    Advice to Management

    Take greater interest in the carrying out of daily activities. Spend more time reviewing the performance of upper management and evaluating their decisions. Spend time observing those who have daily interactions with customers to ensure that the company is making informed decisions regarding customer relationships.

    I worked at Dot Foods part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great pay even for a part timer
    Medical benefits for PT
    Good exercise
    Learn 3 different types of forklifts
    Company events
    Many of the people in the warehouse were good, hard workers, little drama

    Cons

    Very physically demanding, towards the end of the 3 years i was there i had terrible wrist and shoulder pain
    Tasks aren't rotated as often as they should by supervisors (ie if they have you doing a certain mundane task regularly, you will likely always do it)
    Constantly moving from frozen to dry, or cold to dry can be hard on the body
    Limited advancement room

    Advice to Management

    Take the health of your workers seriously
    Rotate workers more (cross train people)

    I have been working at Dot Foods part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Days off are consecutive. Decent pay. Work independently. No drama. Well managed warehouse. Safe place to work. Good training.

    Cons

    Hard on your body. Bi-weekly bonus is not much for how much you put in. Working in a freezer often. This location has no cool air during the summer.

    Advice to Management

    Make the bonuses worth more. Not worth it to sweat and hustle for realistically around 9% of your check back. Invest in an AC.
