Orientation is your first step toward a rewarding career with endless opportunities! If you're selected to join our team, your selection coordinator will explain orientation in detail, and you'll receive an orientation packet to confirm this information.
Orientation is held at our corporate campus in Cookeville TN. During your three-to-four day orientation stay, your lodging and meals will be provided.
Please be sure to bring the following with you to orientation:
|1.||Two forms of identification (a complete list of acceptable forms is in your orientation packet).
|2.||A few pairs of dark colored dress pants or khakis (if you are a driver, you will wear these the first day of orientation until you receive your uniforms; all other positions will wear dress pants or khakis the entire time).
Image at Averitt Express is extremely important. Please come dressed neat, clean and professionally. (no cowboy boots or jeans, for example)
Check the weather for Cookeville TN 38502 so you can pack accordingly.
