    Pros

    Worked for Averitt Express for over 2yrs. Good miles and good pay home every weekend if you want to be. Definitely recommend.

    Cons

    Dealing with some of the dispatchers other than your fleet manager. Driver needs to keep up with a layover pay making sure you get paid for it.

    Pros

    Wonderful people! Company truly cares about their employees providing incredible health insurance benefits and profit sharing into 401k plan.

    My review is for a corporate position only. This is an incredible place for drivers to seek employment.

    Cons

    Pay is considerably lower than average for same jobs at other carriers

    They are too slow to adapt to changes the industry

    Management personnel appear actually afraid of the next person up the chain of command, thereby preventing the free flow and exchange of ideas.

    Drivers are the SOLE and ABSOLUTE focus, neglecting those in support roles. Employment options are limited in the area, and they are not unaware of that fact. While we all know that drivers get us paid, it would be nice for them to offer us pay raises as frequently as they do so to drivers. Experience and time in the job mean very little in regard to pay for non-drivers.

    The mechanics have it even worse than office staff. They are the lowest paid technicians in the area.

    Advice to Management

    Offer people the opportunity to excel.
    Realize that Averitt is a good company, but other companies do many things better.
    Be will to change and adapt.
    Value your non-driving people as much as you do drivers.

    Pros

    It’s a pretty stable company. They generally keep their equipment up to date. From my point of view fairly laid back.

    Cons

    They don’t keep up with other upper echelon companies in their field. A little behind in pay, PTO, and retirement.
