I wish I had never left. The culture there is fantastic and no matter what a person's title was, they always had time for me. The position that I had is no longer there but given the opportunity I'd work for them again.
Was a very good place to work. With room to grow within the company. If I didn't have to relocate. I will still be working there because I was making that my career. They was try to get me transfer but I moved to far from the one in NC.
I came to Averitt for one reason and that was I would be home every weekend. When I started here you had to do truck load for one year where you’re gone all week . My biggest gripe is they don’t keep up with industry standards for Pay . We are currently 8-10 cents a mile behind other carriers. LTL tops out at .58 cents . Turnover is a lot higher than they want you to know . Just think it’s time for a change . When you change divisions at Averitt and someone transfers after you if they have more seniority after a year they go ahead of you on the board . Therefore you never gain company seniority you just go down the board .
CITY DRIVER (Current Employee) – Memphis, TN – July 4, 2018
they allowed me to come in early to arrange an load my own route. route an plan as i saw fit for the day. allowed me to make calls to customers to set a schdule that worked better for the customer. this built better relations for me an the customer.
averitt trucking is a very good and organized company to work, on the daily the driver get his assign load and other information from our dispatch, then the driver determined how long it will take and the fastest and safe way to deliver the load.
Doing safety checks on your truck and going over your paper work and route of travel . I learn use my time wisley the management was great never stand over your back work culture was good for the most part you hardly ever see anyone . The hardest part about the job is driving in the mountains at night. The enjoyable part of the job is when your shift is over !
My job mostly consisted of shuffling paperwork. Lots of paperwork. The computer system was outdated and not the easiest to navigate, but fine once you got the hang of it. You typically saw the same faces everyday, and although it was a quick paced environment, there were periods of lull throughout the day and you could relax and mingle with co workers.
