OTR Driver (Current Employee) – Nashville – October 5, 2015
I Choose Averitt because it sold itself as a family company with more home time then the others, A chance for advancement, plenty of miles and new and clean trucks. During orientation, that appears to be all true. After orientation I get my first truck and it was a total wreck. Worse of all it wasn't cleaned at all. After 3 weeks of requesting for repairs to be done it was finally completed. Soon after the APU gave out and I had to get a replacement truck because they refused to fix the truck I worked hard to clean. So they gave me a different truck that was filthy and in need of repairs also. Considering that they charge drivers a cleaning fee after they leave, you would think the trucks would be cleaned before. My other issue is the lack of miles. I've talked to other Averitt drivers who believe like I do that Averitt purposely try to limit miles to the drivers. I never seen a week with more than 1800 miles. So my time away from home seemed to be almost wasted. Fleet managers switched every week, they didn't understand times and distances of deliveries and made it tough to work for.
