Born in India, I came to the United States when I was in sixth grade. I’ve been working for Dot Transportation since 2007. I like to tell people I drive a truck, but I’m more than a driver. To our customers, I’m the face of Dot. It’s a responsibility I’m proud to have.
What I like best about working at Dot is the family atmosphere the Tracys have created at every distribution center. People know each other. Everybody is friendly and excited to be at work. They really take care of us, and not just with benefits and profit sharing. They host appreciation dinners for drivers and their spouses, and they throw a Christmas party complete with presents for the kids – things you just don’t hear about nowadays.
Last year I had a family issue that upended my schedule. I spoke to my driver manager about it, and they worked around my schedule, and gave me a day off when I needed one. That kind of flexibility is hard to come by. With two boys at home, that means everything.
