Even though there are already so many amazing advantages to being on the Averitt team, we never stop looking for ways to offer more to our associates. We’ve been staying ahead of other carriers throughout our 50-year history, and now we’re doing it again by announcing new higher pay for truckload regional driving associates and trainees!

Regional truckload driving associates, who primarily run South and Midwest lanes typically dispatched within 500 miles of their domicile, now start at 55 cents per mile with their hazmat endorsement, bringing average five-day earnings to $1,350. That’s $70,200 per year! CDL-A drivers without hazmat will start at 52 cents per mile, averaging $1,200 in five days (or $62,400 per year). But they can move to 55 cents per mile immediately after completing hazmat certification.

Regional flatbed driving associates now start at 57 cents per mile and earn an average of $1,440 in five days, or $74,880 per year!

Trainees in our truckload and dedicated divisions are also getting pay increased to $1,000 per week (a few dedicated accounts will remain at $800 per week).

On top of these pay raises, regional truckload and flatbed associates hired through June 30th receive a $5,000 sign-on bonus ($2,500 at 90 and 180 days)!

The best part about Averitt is that it’s not just about the fantastic pay. On the regional truckload jobs, driving associates get home weekly, with 90% of drivers home by noon on Saturdays. Averitt offers all the extras you want, like paid time off and eight paid holidays, plus stop, layover, breakdown, detention and per diem pay. But we also make moving to Averitt worthwhile with advantages you won’t get at other carriers.

Here, you’ll have a true career path because we promote from within. Our fleet includes local, dedicated and regional truck driver jobs, so if you change your driving preferences as your career progresses, we have the next move for you.

Our low-cost insurance coverage is second to none with medical, dental, vision, and hearing benefit plans for individuals and families that are simply unbeatable. When you join Averitt, you’ll find our Profit Sharing plan allows you to share in the rewards of our efforts, with a portion of our profits given back to you as monthly direct deposits into your 401(k) retirement account. We offer a generous $150 uniform allotment. Our professional and sharp-looking uniforms are a symbol of the teamwork and ownership associates at Averitt demonstrate every day. We’re proud of our Averitt red and are happy to offer a uniform allotment to keep you looking your best.

To show how important driver associate satisfaction is, we have a dedicated team of driver support specialists who make sure we're doing everything we can to help you succeed. Driver associates are urged to reach out whenever a need arises and can be assured of confidentiality and a resolution of any issues.
