    I have been working at Dot Foods full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay is decent. You work independently 90% of the time. You stay active. Willing to work with your schedule.

    Cons

    Very easy to get written up and 1 write up snowballs into future write ups. No AC so summers are miserable to work in. Obviously working on frozen side always sucks. Production standards are reasonable but they take half of whatever percent you make over 100. Ex. hitting 110%=5% bonus

    I have been working at Dot Foods

    Pros

    Family owned Generous healthcare package Making large investments in infrastructure and in the surrounding community

    Cons

    Insecure middle management will be what keeps this company from reaching the next level. Employees 60+ are consistently disregarded, given low unfair raises, and pushed out prior to retirement. This is all while leadership brags about “saving the company money” by pushing some to leave before their planned retirement. Gossiping to direct reports about other individuals performances and downfalls seems to be taking place more often than not these days. Insecure leaders are leading with fear, showing favoritism, not investing in the growth of all employees, and in turn - robbing Dot of high performing teams and growth potential.

    Everyone is really great to both work with and interact with.

    I have been working at Dot Foods

    Pros

    Bonuses, HEALTHCARE, fun work environment

    Cons

    No communication, if you aren’t close to someone with a “big” last name you might as well give up, you are treated like just a number.
