The men and women who serve our country make big sacrifices for the freedoms we enjoy. At Averitt, we believe that every veteran deserves to work with a company that values their experience and the unique skills they bring to the table. We’re honored to be recognized as a top Military-Friendly Employer. Whether you’re current or former military, or whether your last day serving was yesterday or a decade ago, there’s a place for you on our team.
If you’re a military veteran and are considering your options for what to do next, a career with Averitt may be exactly what you need. If you already have your CDL-A from the military or are working toward your CDL-A with one of our approved driving schools, you can start driving for us with as little as 1-6 weeks of training.
Your qualifying military experience could also make you eligible for a waiver to apply for a CDL without skills testing. Simply complete this form and provide it when you apply for your CDL.
If you don’t have a CDL, we can help you find a school and offer a $4,800 tuition assistance reimbursement.

After making the pledge in 2016 to hire an additional 1,200 veterans by 2020, the company officially completed its 1,200th veteran hire on July 9, accomplishing its intended goal with over five months to spare.
Averitt is proud to offer the GI Bill Driver Training Program. If you qualify for Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits, you are eligible to get up to 12 monthly payments from the Department of Veterans Affairs while you receive on-the-job training with our regional or dedicated truck driving unit.
