MT. STERLING, Ill. - In preparation for late-summer and fall volume increases, Dot Foods is hosting a job fair to fill full-time and part-time warehouse order selector positions for weekend night shifts in its dry and frozen warehouses.

Each year, volume spikes in the late summer and fall associated with a number of seasonal events-things such as holidays and back-to-school time-create a hiring surge for Dot Foods to keep up. Currently, the company is in need of as many as 25 order selectors to meet capacity.

The job fair will be at the Knights of Columbus Hall, located on U.S. Highway 24 in Mt. Sterling, on Tuesday, July 8, 2014 from 4-7 p.m.

The full time warehouse order selector positions work 4 x 10-hour night shifts on weekends. Full-time positions start at $13.35 per-hour, with potential to earn up to $15.35 depending on warehouse temperature and shift, including competitive benefits. Part-time candidates and college students are urged to attend to investigate the flexible scheduling options available part time in Dot's warehouses.

"Over the past year, we've grown substantially in Illinois through expansions," said Dot Foods' Illinois Warehouse General Manager Bryan Langston. "If you couple that with the upcoming influx of volume we're expecting during the fall, we need to make sure we are well ahead of it and have the right amount of team members."

For employees who commute, Dot has transportation options for select shifts in the Jacksonville and Quincy regions. For a payroll-deducted $5 per-trip, employees can cut back on commute costs by taking advantage of transportation to-and-from Dot provided by West Central Illinois Mass Transit District.

All full-time positions at Dot Foods and Dot Transportation include excellent employee benefits including health, vision, life, and dental insurance, 401k, profit sharing, and paid vacation. For more information about all of Dot's current career opportunities, visit www.dotfoods.com/careers.
