Dot Foods and Dot Transportation, Inc., give pandemic recovery bonuses to full-time employees


MOUNT STERLING, Ill. — Dot Foods, Inc., North America’s largest food industry redistributor, and its affiliate trucking company, Dot Transportation, Inc. (DTI), recently gave a pandemic recovery bonus of 3 percent for all full-time employees company wide, including the company’s Mount Sterling headquarters. This is an additional, one-time bonus based on employees’ earnings and is in addition to the existing quarterly bonus program.

“The last two years have been extremely difficult on everyone, including our employees,” Dick Tracy, president of Dot Foods, said in a press release. “Like so many other businesses, ours suffered when the pandemic hit. And while demand for Dot’s services has rebounded, returning to post-pandemic levels, the country has also been navigating the labor shortage and cost of living has grown faster than most anticipated.

“We are still in the recovery, and our employees continue to go above and beyond to keep America fed. Considering it all, we wanted to do something special to thank them, so we decided to add this recovery bonus on top of our regular quarterly bonus program this year.”

The bonus is based on each employee’s total earnings from Jan. 1 to Dec. 4, 2022, and will be paid in mid-December 2022, ahead of the holiday season.
