We salute those of you who’ve proudly worn our nation’s colors. 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. 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.
We’re proud to be a military friendly employer, and we believe our military associates have the right to be at ease as they make sacrifices to defend our country.
Going on active duty can present financial challenges for some service members. That’s why we’re excited about a recent enhancement to our military leave program. When you’re called to active duty or training camp, you can now be compensated for your leave of absence – for up to 30 consecutive days, you’ll be eligible to receive the difference between your military pay and the base pay you would have earned at Averitt.
About 15% of our associates are military veterans, and we know we're stronger when veterans wear the Averitt uniform. So you can rest easy knowing that while you go on active duty or to training camp, we’ve got your back!
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. Whether you already have your CDL-A from the military or are working toward your CDL-A with one of our approved driving schools, we'd love to talk with you about a future with our team.
