When I first found out about Dot, they didn't really have an opening for me. I had a long transportation background as a safety supervisor and transportation manager for another trucking company, but Dot only had openings for entry-level positions.
I was looking to get my foot in the door so I took a position as a transportation clerk. Coming in and learning the business as a clerk when they first opened their Idaho Distribution Center helped me pick up the business quickly. That helped me grow through positions as an assistant dispatcher, transportation supervisor, assistant transportation manager, and ultimately director of transportation.
I wouldn't trade that experience of coming through the ranks for anything. I was able to learn and experience things I wouldn't have if I'd started as a supervisor. The greatest part of all is that Dot is a company that recognizes talent and hard work. If you possess those things, the company will put you in the best position to succeed.
