Military Support

Not only is Averitt a proud participant in the industry that keeps America rolling, but we also take tremendous pride in our associates who are active members of the nation’s military!

In fact, the U.S. Department of Defense’s Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve program has recognized Averitt as a “Patriotic Employer” on several occasions. This distinguished honor commends our efforts in “contributing to national security and protecting liberty and freedom by supporting employee participation in America’s National Guard and Reserve Force.”


Averitt believes that the contributions and sacrifices made by American veterans and military personnel should never be forgotten when they return home. This especially holds true when they are entering the civilian workforce.

We understand that the challenge of transitioning from a military to civilian profession can often seem overwhelming. At the same time, though, we recognize that many veterans possess several of the skills and characteristics that make them a good fit for the Averitt culture.

Through their service, veterans develop numerous traits that Averitt holds in high regard, including a motivated spirit, self-discipline, a commitment to professionalism, and image and leadership abilities. Knowing this, Averitt emphasizes reaching out to veterans through recruiting efforts at bases across the South and in conjunction with driver training schools.

Averitt offers many career opportunities for military veterans such as driver, leadership, diesel mechanic, and dock worker. Additionally, we work closely with members of the National Guard and other branches to accommodate military leave.
