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

    Pros

    Easy and simple work if you can handle the sweat and heat. Money and hours are pretty good if this is a job for you. At least 40 hours a week and sometimes an extra day.

    Cons

    Can really suck some days with the heat but all apart of the job. No benefits with being part time so be careful if this is your main job.

    Advice to Management

    None, haven't been there long enough but they do there best to keep you hydrated.

    I have been working at Averitt Express full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Management is very fair, easy to talk to and reasonable. Taking time off for vacation isn't difficult, and I've never been pressured to do anything unsafe.

    Cons

    The hours (part of this line of work, but still...), and the heat! Doesn't reflect on the company, but it's a physical gig: summer will make ya want an indoor job...

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing as you are doing. I can't say I have any gripes or complaints: to me, management is fine.

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

    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.
