    I don't drive for Averitt, but I did otr 2 years and 1 year I missed Thanksgiving cause truck broke down and I couldnt get home. Had Pizza Hut at the ts. Also missed that Christmas cause my dispatcher was a moron.

    Thank you. Will you hold my pee cup for me? Hand held devices are illegal while driving.

    Averitt will do their best to get you home for the holidays. You can request to work the holidays and if they have the freight they will keep you moving. I was truckload for 6 years and never missed being home for the holidays.
     
    I.C. Weiner and chopper103in Thank this.

    Thanksgiving (duh) 2 days off
    Xmas 2 days off (Eve and Day)
    News years day off

    The other paid holidays... Depends on what you feel like running or when your FM can get you home. But these are major travel holidays, so Averitt has done the level headed best to get you home. Most folks that I see were home last night, but I stayed out to pick up my truck, so I got in this afternoon. But I feel like a huge weight is off my shoulders now that I'm done driving that #### Volvo. :p

    They got me home.. I really wished I had stayed on the road because my check was short lol but Averitt is a company I plan to stay with a long time, they are very driver friendly. Is it normal for loads to be kinda slow this time of year? I had been running nonstop with consistent miles up until two weeks ago now it seems like things are slowing down and loads are getting shorter.
