    Pros

    Pay was decent,great equipment,home weekends,good dispatchers

    Cons

    Drive all night rush,rush,wait all day to get next load.Trips very short 150-400 miles.I was always having to run in violation of DOT, 2-4 hours of sleep.They would pay a lumper 125.00 unload,only 25.00 to driver

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company management needs to secure better freight and better pay for drivers.
    Supervision was driver friendly.

    I have been working at Averitt Express full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They have a lot of service centers all over the Southeast with fuel, shop, showers and breakrooms. Upgrading these. Great health insurance - Blue Cross, Blue Shield of TN. Mostly good new equipment. Upper management and fleet managers seem to care about drivers. Good miles and home most weekends.

    Cons

    Sometimes picking up at small, out of the way places with challenging docks. No pet policy. Must wear uniforms, though they are provided.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow pets with deposit, please. Continue upgrading service centers and standardize them more. Free Wi Fi is great at Tifton, all centers should have it. Restrooms, male and female, should be open 24/7 at service centers....we get stuck there sometimes!

    I worked at Averitt Express full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Small company feel, caring and engaged leadership. C level was always focused on remaining relevant in an extremely competitive industry, continually progressing with additional products to grow market share.

    Cons

    not for the entrepreneurial, fast driven individual. Growth and achievement possible, but know your place in the order of things, and be prepared to wait. While this isn't really a con, they have good people, and you will wait for 'your turn', those who are interested in that, move on, and good people move on to be successful elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As of my departure, the economy was struggling, and regardless of individual successes, merit increases were non-existent, and the sales bonus program, has hopefully been revamped as it was non existent...tough to be in Sales, and not be rewarded for your growth monetarily.
