Averitt Express has been nationally recognized for the fourth time as a Military Friendly Company!
Viqtory, a veteran-owned business, conducts the national Military Friendly® Company survey every year to highlight companies that support veterans, other members of the military community and their families in transitioning from military to the civilian world. This year, we were not only recognized as a Military Friendly Company, but also as a Military Spouse Friendly Employer and a Military Friendly Brand. And we won bronze distinction as a Military Friendly Employer for having exceptional military programs!
“We strongly believe that every veteran deserves to work for a company that values their service,” said chairman and CEO Gary Sasser, who served in the U.S. Marine Reserves. “We are humbled to be designated once again as a Military Friendly Company. We are proud to be a place that our nation’s service members can call home.”
In 2016, Averitt pledged to hire 1,200 veterans by 2020, but we achieved and exceeded our goal in 2019. That commitment continues today, with even more veterans joining the Averitt team every week. We offer a GI Bill Training Program and also have been recognized as a Patriotic Employer by the U.S. Department of Defense’s Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve program.
“It’s about the people that you work with every day,” driver and Army veteran Joe F. said. “We’re like a family over here. We look out after each other; same way you do in the military.”
If you qualify for post-9/11 GI Bill benefits, you may be eligible for up to 12 monthly payments from the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs while you receive on-the-job training for positions at Averitt.
