    This is going to be a complete process post on averitt express. I applied for TL but ended up switching to DG account. I don't mind tight spaces or unloading.
    I done all the homework on averitt I can. Some good reviews and some bad. Averitt's professional appearance first got my attention.
    The hiring process has been great so far. I will update this post through out the process.

    First off, wish you the best. DG's are really brutal, you almost have to be "Herculean," so I've heard. Never done a one....but i'm not 21 (or 31 or ...nevermind, LoL!)

    Second, document everything. @TROOPER to TRUCKER got "rolled over" badly by them, and I don't mean by his truck.... read his posts!

    Third, good luck in your venues, and I'll watch for updates.

    Be safe, Driver~!!

    Congratulations, I've been with Averitt for over 11 years now. I've been in truckload, dedicated ( Brach candy, dollar general, Cracker Barrel and Cabinart), and am currently in the ltl division.

    I've been with Avrt for over 17 years. It's a good company. I wouldn't do Dollar General on a bet. It's too much work and not enough pay for me. Good luck.

    Well TL is less work but less money. They told me TL was averaging 2000 miles a week. At 40 cents a mile. That's not enough money for me

    I have been with Averitt for 3 1/2 years. Started on the Dollar General account in Scottsville,Ky,
    DG is not bad but one thing for sure is you will earn every dollar you make.
    I did it for 19 months then transferred over to the Federal Mogul account for a few months, then I transferred over to the Colinx account in to a day cab position.
    One good thing is you only have to be in a position for only 6 months then you can transfer to another position

    Good Luck
