At Dot Foods and Dot Transportation, Inc. (DTI), we take pride in our servicemen and women. We especially love to celebrate those who have chosen to start their second career with us.

Dot’s co-founder, Robert Tracy (RT), honorably served our country during World War II. He enlisted in the Marine Corps on December 7, 1942. For this reason, we diligently honor military veterans and have increased our veteran hiring tenfold in the last 10 years.

Did you know?

Ninety-six percent of Dot’s veteran truck drivers would recommend this job to other veterans. 
Overall, we value our veterans and the skills you bring to the table. As the President of DTI Paul Mugerditchian says, “Dot Foods and DTI are fortunate to employ veterans in all areas of our business. We want to recognize their service and sacrifice—and that of all members of the military everywhere.”
