    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Averitt Express (Nashville, TN) in April 2014.

    Interview

    They are very detailed and check in your background they call I think all of your past jobs . If you apply and get turned down they will give you the reason and if it's a ticket. They will tell you to reapply when it falls off . I got to say orientation here is pretty nice . I mean it is what it is it's orientation but I feel they try to make it nicer than most companies . They feed you I would say 60% of what you need to eat a lot of drivers I remember were still hungry so I would say bring a little bit of money for food I believe it lasted all week . You have the same hotel room so bring yourself a couple bottles of drinks and some snacks for the hotel room they feed most of the meals but you know everybody wants a snack here and there . Overall I don't think anybody can go wrong coming here . This is for somebody that has something at home that they want to come home to once in a while . I remember when I used to stay out for a month at a time how are used to feel . I don't feel that here I come home quite often . I like how there's also several other jobs I could do here . Maybe someday I'll switch to a city driver be home daily . They do require six months experience in no more than two tickets to be able to switch . There is a safety. Program that they use so you must've you must have at least eight safety points to switch. Basically no accidents in your first six months.
