Each year, Averitt commits itself to adding more veterans to our growing team. So, no matter which branch you served, or what your specialty might be, we have a uniform waiting for you. Turn here.
At Averitt, we believe every veteran deserves to work with a team that has your back – and a company that has your future. That’s why we don’t just take pride in our veterans – we take care of them. Hundreds of veterans are already at ease with us, and we’re always looking to grow that number. In fact, we’re committed to hiring 1,200 or more veterans by the year 2020.
GI Bill Driver Training Program
If you are eligible for GI Bill benefits, you can earn up to $1,140 per month tax free, using your available Post 9/11 GI Bill funds, PLUS your weekly Averitt paycheck, PLUS up to $4,800 tuition/transition bonus from Averitt (paid weekly)!
Must have valid CDL-A and graduated from one of our approved truck driving schools in the past 180 days OR have any tractor trailer experience in the past 10 years (recruiter will review eligibility; military driving experience considered)
Must have previously served in the U.S. military or have a family member with Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits available. To check to see if you have available benefits, please visit https://www.va.gov/education/gi-bill/post-9-11/ch-33-benefit or call 888-442-4551. It could take the V.A. approximately 90 days to determine eligibility.
If you qualify for the Post 9/11 GI benefits, you are eligible to get up to 12 monthly payments from the V.A. while you receive on-the-job training.
You will receive 6 weeks of behind-the-wheel training at $800 per week. During the remaining 46 weeks, you will work with a mentor and leadership for follow-up training and communication.
Eligible Veterans will complete all required paperwork during orientation. Benefit checks are paid directly from the Department of Veteran Affairs – not Averitt – usually 4-6 weeks after training begins.
