Pros

Averitt 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.

Cons

The 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 Management

Monitor the progress and success of your service center directors a little bit better than you do!!!

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

    Pros

    Most of the people are great to work with. They are flexible on your hours

    Cons

    They lie. They are penny pincer's to the max. Been working there for three years, I make less then the new hires. Told me they gave me a raise over a month ago, just checked on line, no raise. If you don't keep after them you will never get a raise.

    Advice to Management

    Stop running your business like your working out of the back of a pickup. Give people the money you know they have coming. Buy the equipment workers need to do their jobs right. This one company that needs a union.
