Learn why Averitt is Military Friendly

"My brother was working at Averitt, and suggested I give it a try. I did, and I've been here ever since." Starting as a Truckload driver, he moved around between various other roles before landing as a city driver. He also appreciates the team mentality. "With Averitt you have the security of knowing you're part of a family. That you're going to be taken care of. If you come here to pursue a careers, it's here for you."
R.G. 1
R.G. Albro
City Driver // Army 24 Years // Averitt Since 2007
After four years with the Marines, where he served as a corporal in an infantry unit, Doug started at Averitt working on the dock part time. His other part-time job was driving a city bus. But an offer to drive full time for Averitt led him to the place he's called home for 30 years. In that time, he's seen a lot of changes. But also a lot of teamwork.

Doug Lawrence
City Driver // Marine Corps 4 Years // Averitt since 1989
"I saw there was a position open and thought it might be something I could do. My first thought was, 'I'll just get in here until I find something else.' But once I got here and saw how the company was run, I ended up staying. When you have a company that cares about their associates, it makes a difference."
Carla 1
Carla Guyton
Freight Clerk // Army 6 Years (including Reserve) // Averitt Since 2004
"Both my dad and granddad were truck drivers. They told me, 'it's always gonna put food on the table.' So I gave it a shot. And I kind of fell in love with it." In his time with Averitt, he's done everything from Truckload, to shuttle, to city driver. He's also worked the dock, which is a topic close to his heart. "I hear from so many other companies that it's the dock workers against the drivers... or management against the drivers... so many people going against each other. And I tell 'em where I work, people actually care. They have a heart."
Tim 1
Tim Smith
City Driver // Marine Corps 8 Years // Averitt Since 2014
“When I got out of the service I started working for another carrier. Then they went on strike, so I went job hunting. I knew a guy that had worked at Averitt years ago who told me it was a good company. So I got an interview, came back for a second interview, and was working within the week. That was August of 1998.” When asked the reason behind his longevity with one company, his answer is clear. “It’s the culture. I’m a military guy. I come from a military family. And there’s a real sense of uniformity here. It’s very professional on down the line – from service center directors, to operations managers, to frontline leaders.” But that’s only part of the story. “Averitt’s been really good to me and my family. When I started, we were right in the middle of having our first child. And everyone was really flexible. So I started working my way through the ranks. I drove the forklift, then worked in the yard, then got into leadership. I love it.”
Ty 1
Ty Moore
Frontline Leader // Air Force 4 years // Averitt Since 1998
“When I got out of high school, I joined the Marine Corps. Served four years. Then after that I joined the police department. Retired as a detective.” But that wasn’t the end of his uniform-wearing days. “When you’re in the service, uniformity is really important. Same with the police department. And one of the reasons I chose Averitt is because the approach here is close to how I felt with those two organizations. I came down, saw how the trucks were nice and neat, saw how everyone was wearing the same uniform. That’s what I was looking for.” But outward appearances only go so far. What really keeps Dale engaged on a daily basis are the people he works with. “The people here are very friendly. They go the extra mile to try to help you. And they work with you if you have any kind of situation that you might need help with. They’re very cooperative.”
Dale 1
Dale Waltower
City Driver // Marine Corps 4 Years // Averitt Since 2012
“I joined the Army straight out of high school. I was a mechanic at first, which was great. But when you get higher in rank, things change. So I outlined three goals for myself – move to Special Operations, make first sergeant, and become a jumpmaster (an expert-level paratrooper). And I accomplished all three." “When I was getting ready to retire from the Army, they offered a program for people to get their CDL. I signed up and took the course. One of my instructors used to work for Averitt, and we became good friends. He took me down to the Averitt yard, and I saw how everything was run. I saw the equipment, I talked to some of the drivers, and it was a no-brainer who I was gonna work for once I got out of the military.”
Paul 1
Paul Bratcher
Regional Driver // Army 26 Years // Averitt Since 2019
Even in the Army, Glen’s time revolved around trucking. “I drove heavy equipment when I was in the service over in Europe. All told, I’ve been driving a truck for 40 years on two continents.” But Averitt wasn’t his first stop after returning to civilian life. “At one time I’d thought about coming here, but someone offered me what I thought was a better deal. It wasn’t. Then one day a relative of mine pointed out an ad for Averitt in the paper. And I said ‘hey, that’s where I’m going.’” He drove with Averitt until 2004, when a medical event changed the course of both his life and career. “It was a grand mal seizure. I’d never been sick a day in my life, and one day the whole right side of my brain just shut off. I was unconscious for three days. The hardest part was waking up and having them say, ‘well, don’t freak out, but your career is over as a driver.’ That was hard to take. But Averitt took care of me when I got sick. They were there. People came to see me, they helped me out. When I came back, they put me in a new non-driving position." He appreciates the team mentality he sees on a daily basis. “I’ve got a good team on the yard. We work really good together. We’re constantly communicating with each other. Everybody helps each other out.”
Glen 1
Glen Barber
Dock Associate // Army 6 Years // Averitt Since 1996
After years in the Navy, she jumped around a bit – going to college for a degree in graphic arts, working in a hospital as a radiology transporter, even working as a welder – before finding her current career. “All told, I’ve been a truck driver for over 15 years.” The last several of which have been right here at Averitt. One of the things that stands out to her most is the appreciation for the uniform she sees among her fellow associates. “The drivers I know take pride in what they wear. Some even iron the creases in the sleeves, you know? That’s a big thing for me – to see people who take that kind of pride in a uniform. Because I take pride in what I look like too.”
Mary 1
Mary Cason
Dedicated Driver // Navy 4 Years // Averitt Since 2014
Moving to Atlanta after leaving the Army, Joe found himself looking for employment. “I put an application in to the police department. And when I did, I saw an advertisement for Averitt. I started working part-time on the dock, and when the Atlanta police department called I told them I already had a job. Because I was really liking the company. I liked where they were headed.” He liked it so much, in fact, that he’s been here almost 30 years. “It’s about the people that you work with every day. We’re like a family over here. We look out after each other. Same way you do in the military. It’s not like a job where you just ‘show up.’ I wouldn’t know what to do without my family here at Averitt.”
