    I'm moving to the Roanoke, VA area in about a week or so and I know there is a LTL position open there. I was trying to figure out how to apply for it. When I go to the Averitt Careers page it just list Regional, City, Flatbed and Regional Team. Would it fall under Regional or is listed as something else? I currently drive for Maverick Transportation, but once I move I have to change over to long haul. I don't want to be out for two weeks at a time and I'm looking to get home everyday now. Thanks for any help.

    The city position would be the ltl position.

    I would be looking at other ltl companies if I were you. Most of the others will start you at more than our top pay. Sad but true. Our top shuttle driver at my barn left to start at the bottom at Estes this week.

    I want some of what you have been smoking. ROFL. You can't possibly be serious.

    Yes, make Averitt your last resort. Take it from someone that no longer works there after 19+ years of watching their shenanigans.

    Take it from a 23 year Averitt driver. I would try really hard to get on with Old Dominion. You'll start out $0.045 more than Averitt and they are at $.58 going to $.60. Three weeks after 5 years.

    3 weeks of vacation.

    Looked at job openings on insideaveritt, not a shuttle position available system wide. I expect the outside carriers to come pouring in soon with the increasing freight levels.

    Yup. While 20 driver's runs are cut and told, "you can work the dock tonight. "

    Ask me how unbelievably glad I am that I don't have to don that red shirt and walk through those gates of hell any more. Have never looked back.
