Veterans: We Support You With Our Mission To Offer Outstanding Careers With You In Mind.

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 veteran truck drivers, we take care of them.

We were recently nationally recognized as a Military-Friendly Company, Military Friendly Brand and Military Spouse Friendly Employer. And each year, we commit 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.

“We strongly believe that every veteran deserves to work for a company that values their service,” Chairman and CEO Gary Sasser, who served in the U.S. Marine Reserves, says. “We are proud to be a place that our nation’s service members can call home.”

Supporting You As You Defend Our Country

We’re proud to be a military friendly employer, and we believe our military associates have the right to be at ease as they make sacrifices to defend our country.

Going on active duty can present financial challenges for some service members. That’s why we’re excited about a recent enhancement to our military leave program. When you’re called to active duty or training camp, you can now be compensated for your leave of absence – for up to 30 consecutive days, you’ll be eligible to receive the difference between your military pay and the base pay you would have earned at Averitt.

About 15% of our associates are military veterans, and we know we're stronger when veterans wear the Averitt uniform. So you can rest easy knowing that while you go on active duty or to training camp, we’ve got your back!
