Just got my A's last week. Averitt definitely sounds like one of the better companies to work for. I rock long "dread" locks for cultural reasons. Are they against company policy?

I am not sure on the dread locks. They just let people with beards in a few months ago. Call and ask cause I don't really know.
Haven't posted in a week or so and this will probably be my last update since things are stable now. I am still loving this company. My fleet manager is awesome and has a good personality. The miles are great. They are not maxxed out but I feel like I stay pretty busy. Never have to wait for my next assignment since the preplans are normally in place.
If I had to grasp at a straw to find a complaint it would be that there is more night driving than what im used to. Its not much, and you aren't driving till 2AM or anything, but I am used to starting at 4AM and ending around 6PM. Now sometimes its like 10 to Midnight or so. Nothing major but an adjustment for sure.
I know someone saying "oh they got miles" only is someone's word. So I have attached a picture of this week's pay. Doesn't have any personal info on it other than my address. This is just the bottom line, above it shows all the trips I did for that week.
I would encourage anyone to give averitt a shot. I have been steady since going solo and I dont really feel like anything is going to change. I may have a slow week as we all do, but I think I got a good grasp on how this company operates and what I can expect from them. I feel like this is the company I will be with for a very long time.
I wish you all the best of luck. Ill still keep an eye out here for any questions as well as the other topics here. Hopefully this thread has given any potential drivers some insight into Averitt. This is the 3rd company I have worked for in my career (Covenant, Maverick, Averitt) and I am blown away by how great Averitt is. Covenant was a nightmare. Maverick was good and I thought it couldn't get any better.....till I came here.
