If you've served in the military, we'd love for you to consider working with us. Your leadership and professional experiences have prepared you to overcome great challenges. You know more than anyone what it means to work as a team and value others. You believe in what you do, and you're willing to work to make it great. We think you'd make a great fit here, and we would be proud to work alongside you.
We’re honored to be recognized as a “Patriotic Employer” by the U.S. Department of Defense’s Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve program, or ESGR. The honor commends our efforts in “contributing to the national security and protecting liberty and freedom by supporting employee participation in America’s National Guard and Reserve Force.”
Here are a few snapshots of associates who have served in the military.
This is Eric Erger, a Marine who developed his skills in leadership, motivation and discipline while serving in the military. Now Eric is Averitt's security coordinator, and we're proud to have him on our team.
During his tour of duty in Iraq, Ron Bates was attached to Naval helicopter squadron HSC-84 – the “Red Wolves,” as they’re sometimes known. He continues to serve in the Navy Reserves, and is Averitt’s Operations Manager in Chicago.
Dennis Graham works at our Nissan supply chain site in Symrna, Tennessee. That is, when he’s not serving in Baghdad as his unit’s First Sergeant. There, he manages the air traffic control facilities, provides liaison on airspace for local commands, and serves as a representative to the Commander.
“Keep up the good work, Averitt! I can’t wait to get back to work...I miss all my good friends there.”
Before retiring from the Army in 1987, Gerald Gibson said it was the best job he could’ve asked for.
“It just felt right to me,” said Gerald.
After he retired, he started searching for a job that gave him a similar feeling. He landed behind the wheel of one of our big red trucks. Like his father who also served in the Army and drove trucks, Gerald enjoys having a job that allows him to see the country he served.
“Having served my country in the military, I really enjoy getting to go out and see it as part of my job.”
