Averitt Orientation

Rolling out the red carpet for our new associates


What to expect during your Orientation Week at Averitt

Orientation is your first step toward a rewarding career with endless opportunities! If you're selected to join our team, your selection coordinator will explain orientation in detail, and you'll receive an orientation packet to confirm this information.

Orientation is held at our corporate campus in Cookeville TN. During your three-to-four day orientation stay, your lodging and meals will be provided.

Please be sure to bring the following with you to orientation:

1. Two forms of identification (a complete list of acceptable forms is in your orientation packet).

2. A few pairs of dark colored dress pants or khakis (if you are a driver, you will wear these the first day of orientation until you receive your uniforms; all other positions will wear dress pants or khakis the entire time).  

Image at Averitt Express is extremely important. Please come dressed neat, clean and professionally. (no cowboy boots or jeans, for example)

Check the weather for Cookeville TN 38502 so you can pack accordingly.

3. Dark-colored shoes (dress shoes or work boots are best). Cowboy boots are strictly prohibited.

4. A voided check or something from your bank showing your bank account number to setup direct deposit.

5. Page 1 of the 1040 from the previous year’s federal income tax return.  This will show a spouse or any dependents who need to be added to insurance.

6. Marriage certificate (if married in the current year).

7. Social security numbers and dates of birth of any dependents for insurance purposes.

8. Birth certificate for children not claimed on taxes (for insurance purposes).

Men: Men may have neatly trimmed beards, goatees and mustaches. Hair must be cut above the collar. Tattoos should be covered or inconspicuous. Tattoos that are offensive and/or disturbing are prohibited. No piercings.

Women: Hair must be a naturally occurring color (no green, purple, etc.) and must be neatly trimmed or pulled back. Earrings are permitted; however, hoops and dangling earrings may not be worn while handling freight. Excessive jewelry is not permitted. Tattoos should be covered or inconspicuous. Tattoos that are offensive and/or disturbing are prohibited.

If you have inconspicuous tattoos, we do ask that you keep them covered at all times while you are in orientation and any time in the public eye while you are on duty, in truck stops, at a customer's location, etc. If you require long-sleeve shirts, these items will need to be ordered. This applies for orientation as well. So please be prepared and bring a long-sleeved shirt with you to wear to orientation.

Hats or clothing with another company’s logo are not allowed.

We look forward to meeting you! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your selection coordinator or service center director.
