    Pros

    You are back home at the middle of the week and weekends.

    Cons

    Sometimes you have to wait for backhaul up to 6 hrs. Even though it doesn’t happens all the times it’s good to know.

    Some planners don't understand how to drive a semi and don't know how long it actually takes to point to point b so therefore you can be late because of that

    I worked at Averitt Express full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Profit sharing, Wells Fargo 401K, that's really about it.

    Cons

    Always talks about handbook policy but does not adhere to it. All about TN and if you are not in TN then you're an outsider and don't expect no help.

    I worked at Averitt Express full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Tractors and trailers are in great condition. Friendly people at service centers.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive enough in my area. Just about every company pays you more. Constantly getting underbid and losing contracts. Not enough work to go around. Was getting 58 to 62 hrs per week. They lost a contract to the competition(cheaper). Struggled to get 40hrs a week. They couldn't get any new business so I had to go somewhere else so I could get paid adequately.
