GI Bill OJT Program

Whether you served our country 15 years ago or 15 days ago, we believe every veteran deserves to work with a team that has your back – and a company that has your future. That’s why we don’t just take pride in our veterans – we take care of them.

In fact, we’re committed to hiring 1,200 or more veterans by the year 2020. Hundreds of veterans are already at ease with us, and we’re always looking to grow that number.

We are honored to be an elite member and proud to offer the GI Bill On-The-Job Training program.

So if you’re looking for a place to hang your hat, take a closer look at Averitt. Whatever branch you’re coming from, whatever knowledge you bring to the table, we can’t wait to put your experience to work, and your mind at ease.
