Get More Than Cents Per Mile At Averitt

Get More Than Cents Per Mile At Averitt

It’s hard to imagine a year that has thrown bigger challenges our way than 2020. Thankfully, Averitt driving associates have stepped up once again to accept these challenges each day – just as we have for nearly 50 years. Customers have noticed and Averitt is growing again! We’re looking for drivers who want to improve their driving career with a company dedicated to its people and committed to offering more than cents per mile to make it all worthwhile. Take a look at all the ways Averitt Express really shines by offering extras other carriers just can’t match.

Our driving associates enjoy these extraordinary advantages: 

Averitt associates can boost earning power with referral bonuses for all positions – with extra bucks for drivers and mechanics and no maximum on what you can earn! Our amazingly low-cost medical, dental, vision, and hearing benefit plans for individuals and families are simply unbeatable. As an Averitt associate, our Profit-Sharing plan is an exciting opportunity for you to share in the rewards of our efforts -- a portion of our profits is given back to you as monthly direct deposits into your 401(k) retirement account! And how about our $150 uniform allotment? Our professional and sharp-looking uniforms are a symbol of the teamwork and ownership associates at Averitt demonstrate every day. We’re proud of our Averitt red and are happy to offer a uniform allotment to keep you looking your best.

Our Truckload drivers enjoy minimum mile pay for runs that are less than 150 miles ($161 dry van, $168 flatbed, based on rate of pay) or between 151 and 450 miles ($207 dry van, $216 flatbed, based on rate of pay) to make every mile worthwhile. We also offer $66 per diem to keep you rolling comfortably, $200 shuttle run pay, and a little something extra every time you bump the dock. Add that to our competitive starting rates for regional associates, and you really have something to brag about! Got Hazmat certification? Good news: you’ll make even more with regular CPM rate increases for years down the road!

Don’t miss out on Red Thinkin’ Rewards, a point system we’ve designed to reward Averitt associates for things they do every day. Working smarter -- not harder -- builds up your points, which associates can use on thousands of items in our catalog, from vacation packages to golf clubs, electronics to jewelry, and everything in between!

These amazing extras are unique to Averitt and make our opportunities more than just a job. It’s a place to chart your career path and enjoy more rewards that you can’t get with other carriers. We are very proud of our Averitt associates, and these are just some of the ways we try to give back to thank them for all they do.
