Averitt opens on-the-job diesel tech training program for military vets
from Commercial Carrier Journal
Averitt Express announced in October a new on-the-job training diesel mechanic program for military veterans and family members with Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits. The program is part of the East Tennessee-based carrier's commitment to hire 1,200 additional veterans by 2020. Individuals selected for the new diesel mechanic program will be trained by Averitt's shop leaders, maintenance coordinators and experienced technicians on everything from basic computer skills to assisting with in-depth repair on tractor/trailers. The program offers paid clock hours, raises based on experience level and an option for a four-day work week.
