Leaving Gov. job to OTR. Am I crazy?

Hi, Jason and welcome. Don't let TMC's percentage pay worry you, it works out about the same as the cpm that most of us make. I drive for Maverick and can answer some of the questions you might have about them. I think that their starting pay for solo is .56 cents a mile for regional flatbed. They also have a guaranteed weekly pay, with reasonable stipulations, I believe they also offer the percentage of the load pay. I'm regional flatbed, so I could be wrong about this, but it is my understanding that glass and boat haulers are making a little less per mile due to the number of deadhead miles. Anyway either of the companies you mentioned, TMC, Maverick, or Prime, would be a good choice. And all three of them do offer a lease to own program if that is your goal, heaven forbid. Anyway stay with us and keep us posted on your choices, and ask all the questions you want.

Headed to Maverick LLC for orientation

Hi Benjamin, congratulations on starting with maverick. I have no doubt that you will enjoy working here. Don't sweat orientation, as andhe78 said they want you to succeed. I'm spending the night on the yard at little rock tonight, so might see you out there as I leave in the morning. Good luck and be safe out there.

What’s going on Maverick???

Hang in there Michael. The delay is probably due to having smaller class sizes due to covid. I've been with Maverick for 3 1/2 years, they have been really good to me. I'm not far from you (Dyersburg), home most weekends, maybe 2 or 3 weeks a year I get hung out. The pay out the gate is good, the equipment is good. Their expectations are a little higher than some but the only limit will be you.

This one is for Old School

It looks right to me, jammer. I've been driving for 3 1/2 years with maverick. It looks like next week is going to start out good as well. My 34 is up at 10 tomorrow night and they have me scheduled for a pickup at 9 with delivery in Laredo by 15:00 Monday. From ft Smith to Laredo, it will most likely be Tuesday morning. I can't load, tarp and do 700 miles in one day. But I should get over 600 and be waiting on them to open Tuesday morning.

This one is for Old School

Hey old school, I've read your post over the years and we seem to drive similar. This month has been my best month driving with 13812 miles logged for the month of October. I usually run closer to 10 or 11.

New Drivers

At Maverick, it is a minimum of 21 days. Insurance company rules. But last till the trainer releases you. So it could be 3 weeks or 6 weeks or more. Depends on the driver and the trainer.

The oldest rookie?

You're not alone, I just turned 57 a couple of weeks ago. I will test out a week from Saturday and be another rookie on the road soon.
