    I have been working at Averitt Express full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great home time, especially local, decent competitive company pay, solid benefits, health insurance by bluecross is lower than most other companies, the other benefits are well priced such as dental, vision, accidental, life, cancer, critical illness by colonial Life, respectful human resources, office workers, made friends with many coworkerscoworkers. You can work lots of hours, paid hourly. They have an app for paystubs to check every week. Cookouts regularly at service centers. The CEO is down to earth friendly realistic, and humble. The main office staff were friendly.paid time off accumulates, you get vested in your profit sharing plan, they offer 401k with Wells Fargo. The trucks are relatively new, always do pretrip and they will fix any problems. After 6 months you can bid on any job in the company. I'm a hard worker so lots of hours is good with me. The values here are definitely honest in that the driving force is the people of the company.

    Cons

    Every job has its rude coworkers, but that's any job. Open door policy is useful for that. Yard trucks need better maintenance but they run well most of the time. Could use more.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    I worked at Averitt Express full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Seems to have a good benefits package

    Cons

    They would rather be short handed than spend a buck. Lots of unhappy people that feel stuck due to life situation. "Leaders" are shady and inept, definitely a lot of favoritism. Turnover would be higher, if people didn't feel trapped.

    Advice to Management

    The use of "leader" to label supervision, is an absolute joke. Leaders only look out for themselves and not their people. Call them supervisors or managers, some of these "leaders" have no idea how to lead, but can manage just fine.
    The professional image policy should be revisited, the folks in the call center, who never see the customer, should not have a more strict policy than the drivers, who are the true face of the company.
