Averitt in the rear view.

Driver (Current Employee)
London, KY

ProsAveritt has a fairly good reputation in the trucking industry. They have decent marketing strategies and are privately owned and operated. The training processes are pretty good as a whole. The equipment that Averitt provides it's employees do due their jobs is for the most part well maintained, and safe. Averitt offers a pretty good benefits package and the pay is descent. The company as a whole does reward employees with small recognitions for safe driving and non-preventable accidents. The owner of the company, Gary Sasser does make himself available to speak to employees about concerns if they are important enough.

ConsThe leadership at the service center in London, Ky is terrible. Unfortunately the terminal manager was tossed into a job that requires more skills and dedication that he possesses. None of the other employees at this service center have an ounce of respect for this man and due to this, there is no chain of command and no one is held accountable for their actions. A leader is supposed to be in control of his employees but our manager is scared to discipline any one. We were just introduced to a new district manager so hopefully he will realize that our service center director is a coward and a liar to his employees and customers.

Advice to Senior ManagementMonitor the progress and success of your service center directors a little bit better than you do!!!
