    Pros

    The hours were great, and depending on what you did, there was a lot of downtime and rest. If you're fortunate enough to sign on part time, the pay for dock workers starts over 12 dollars, which is really good.

    Cons

    Better have your eggs all lined up when it comes to benefits, they are not afraid to not put you on, as they refused to put my wife on the insurance and she was pregnant. There is no overtime, even though i often worked 50 hours. Top out pay is only 19.50, which is very low in this line of work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your word on raises, promotions, and benefits promised. Dishonesty was a morale killer when I was there with Averitt.

    Pros

    Stable and profitable company. Top management has been there since the company started and that makes it a very stable company at its highest levels. Not so much for sales and drivers.

    Cons

    Sales management treats employees as if we were beneath him/her. He/She talks down to his people and continuously threatens to write you up and his favorite phrase is "you disappoint me." I never understood why there was so much turnover in my territory and now I totally understand. Management does not train you and if you need help you are asked to go to your peers but not to corporate because he gets in trouble because they will find out He/She does not even know how to use the system. Never gives a word of encouragement and has harassed female employees. No one says anything for fear of losing their job. He/She has been known to use foul language and gets confrontational.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should really consider who the have as middle management and should dig deeper into why so much turnover.

    I get good miles every week. I go home every weekend and with notice even sooner. service centers are nice to stay at and get a shower

    Cons

    Being forced to go on the road for a year before u can move to a city route or shuttle

    Advice to Management

    Allow our kids to ride. Make it a 10 years old and up policy. My 2 boys are begging to go and it would be an experience they would remember the rest of their lives
