Lied to from the start
Truckload Driver (Current Employee), Greensboro NCOctober 8, 2014
Pros: free uniforms after six months ice machines
Cons: low miles equals low pay poor management too many macros short hauls
Your recruiter promises new trucks guaranteed so many miles home every weekend. Don`t believe the hype. Some drivers may get lucky and get all promised but the majority will not. Fleet managers will screw you over every chance they get. Short hauls several stop loads that do not pay much. If you like sitting in a parking lot for an average of 12-23 – more... hours at least three days a week then Averitt may be the job for you. Let us talk about the service centers. To their credit they are remodeling them but how long does it honestly take? Most of the showers are disgusting and really need a full time employee to clean the facilities. Most of the truck autowash bays are broke all the time. This may be an ok place to start but if you want miles you will not get them here, If you wanna hang out in your new uniform and look good in the breakroom or parking lot then look no further. – less

Dock Worker (Current Employee), Gulfport MSOctober 6, 2014
Pros: heathcare
Cons: no lunch breaks, short hours
The job is very fast pace, also time limitation , they let you learn as you go. Coworkers learn on the job site also, you see new people every week. Hardest part of the job is training new crews how to handle job. Management is normally the workers helping with the stock and loading of pallets

Plenty of time off...while in the truck...
Regional driver (truckload) (Current Employee), TennesseeSeptember 12, 2014
Pros: being home, free food, benefits.
Cons: getting home too late, leaving back out too early.
I won't lie and say its an awesome place to work, but it is tolerable. More drivers need to write reviews and let everyone on indeed know how they rate the company. Too many office worker reviews and not enough driver reviews. The best thing about the company would be the benefit package. The pay is ehh... The home time for a trucking company is better – more... than most, but they can miss the mark on work/life balance pretty often. Fleet managers can be quite cold. Granted, they have their plate quite full with upwards of 60 drivers a piece, but geez... Drivers are people and not second class citizens. We like communication and not just one word sentences or answers. Maybe I expect too much... – less

Had good medical benefits, 401K, and Employee Insurance
Professional Driver (Former Employee), Cookeville, TNAugust 18, 2014
Pros: cares for employees, personal time off for emergencies and family leave. good benefits.
Cons: often dot requirements clash with load planners delivery times, drivers under stress and duress, lots of sensors in and on truck, too much micro managing now, paid miles less than actual miles, driver is robbed of at least 10% of hub miles, driver's actual miles not accurately recorded, company only records "load miles", load miles are based on some pre-arranged table.
Overall, it was a good job. They had strange rules at first, like not having an inverter, not able to take spouse very much, no pets, and similar. But, after time went by things relaxed and rules were made more reasonable and practical, for the most part (still no pets). Can't believe I got yelled at for having an inverter in my truck, which are very – more... necessary, and it was a company mechanic who installed it. Ambiguous rules and the rationalle was, "they could change the rules at any time". Yet, it wasn't a rule changed by corporate, but a rule based on the personal descretion of a boss, at that time. But, very soon, due to the new laws about truck idle, Tri-Paks were being installed, which included high wattage inverters. I had many hard times making a schedule based on the inexperienced planners and often got scheduled to make a delivery to a customer on a holiday, who was closed that day. No amount of argument would convince my immediate supervisor they were wrong, yet it proved out that I was correct in the first place. Many disagreements were as a result of a bad load planner or a bull headed fleet manager allowing them to cause you to be put in a bad situation with your log and maximum duty time allowed per week as per DOT requirements. I can't say all was bad, as it is a high stress job for all concerned. Most of the time, reasonable minds prevailed, and the more experienced you became, the more your judgement was taken into consideration, and trusted. Averitt was the only trucking company I stayed with, because the good outweighed the bad and they at least allowed me to take personal time off for my church activities and to care for my mother when she had her strokes, and for other emergencies. They were a considerate company overall, that cared for it's employees. I got home most weekends and holidays, and got to take my wife on trips more often. All in all, a good company. – less

Averitt is flexible and friendly atmosphere
Canadian Export Coordinator (Current Employee), Erlanger KYJuly 16, 2014
Pros: friendly laid back atmosphere, great co-workers
Cons: long commute, office personnel has been left out of pay increases for the last 3 yrs
A typical day at work is interacting with co-workers in a friendly and joking manner all while getting the important stuff done. I have learned a great deal about the shipping industry and how important it is to have reliable co-workers. The hardest part of my job is obtaining the correct paperwork if it is not provided with the shipment at time of – more... pick up. Shippers and Customers do not like the job not being done right at time of pickup. I really enjoy corresponding and helping customers and shippers get their freight into Canada. – less

Good Pay, no job security
Dock Associate (Former Employee), Lawrenceville, GAJuly 7, 2014
Pros: great pay and benefits
Cons: management, advancement oppurtunity
Was a good job, but working in a place that is based on seniority to advance and is also suceptible to gas prices does not bode well overall. Managment was basically non existent and when they were is was most likely to chastise you for one thing or the other. Positive re inforcement was non existant.

Management at the Nissan Plant.
Yard Switcher (Former Employee), Smyrna, TNJune 11, 2014
Pros: fun people to work with.
Cons: management does not care about you.
This job was a great job. Loved it. But of course it is not perfect. If you need money and have no problem working 6 days a week, when told that 6 days a week happens very rarely but truly the only time you don't have 6 days week is a holiday, also overtime and no time with love ones, this is your job. You have a idea and it works, good luck on you – more... idea working with other shifts. It is the only job I have had that the 3 Managers do not work together to make life easy for everyone. It is the same job every minute for every shift but not for Averitt. Every shift is so mismanaged that all shifts thinks the other is not doing there job. If you want to take it up the flag pole to the next person. No problem just wait 6 months till he finally shows up for your shift to introduce himself. Oh do you want to work your butt off while others do the easy job because you did the stupid thing by showing you are able to do the hard stuff. No problem. But sincerely this job needs to be a 12 hour shift not 8 with 3 shifts. So you get time to be with family. Also rotating jobs so you can learn everything,and feel like everyone pulls there own and not get burned out from doing the same job everyday. It is another job that hopes your are so desperate and broke and to scared to quit that you put up with it all and get paid nothing at all. If you think I am joking get the job they need you and will give you a $1500 bonus just to stay for 6 months. The best part of this job are the people you work with that are not management. – less
