My Maverick Transportation Diary

Just those "core" tests.

There is an app called "CDL Prep" if you know those questions on there you will do very well. Good chance you will see many of those questions again (word for word) ;)

“If anyone has any specific questions, send them my way and I will get an answer.”

Hey Jeremy, hope training is going well! You’ll have to let us know when you graduate. Anyway, I do have a question about the CDL school part. Do they do any endorsements or is it just what I call the core (general knowledge, air brakes and combination vehicles)?

My Maverick Transportation Diary

Just wrapping up week 1 on the trainers truck. Was a bit nervous going into this, wasnt sure how being in a truck with a strnger. All has gone very well! My trainer is certainly a knowledgeable guy. Been with Maverick for 8 years, with 8 years of safe service.

We started with runs in Texas, as far South as Loredo where it was hot and humid. Had runs in Illinois and Indiana where I'm wearing a hoodie.

Lots of securing loads, tarping, unloading, learning the peoplenet system, all the paperwork, lots to this job for sure. Far more than just "driving a truck".

Sleeping on the truck, showers in truck stops, brushing my teeth in the morning at the truck stops all have not been nearly as bad as I thought it might be. Got used to all that pretty quick.

Headed back to my trainers home town for the weekend. They put me up in a comfort suites, nice hotel for the weekend. I will get my laundry done, relax a bit, and back at it next week.

Still very happy with my choice. Still having a good time and have no regrets.

If anyone has any specific questions, send them my way and I will get an answer.

You all be safe out there!!

Did Maverick just raise their pay again?

I am at home now, waiting for my trainer to call me to set it all up. I should hear from him today and I'm guessing meeting up with him this weekend to head out Sunday or Monday.....excited!

Jeramy, you on the trainer truck yet?

That one is from Aug. As a new flatbedder you will get .52 plus .02 of performance pay, so .54 to start. That performance pay can go as high as .06 after your first quarter if you qualify. After 6 months that starting .52 goes to .54.

So if you qualify for full performance pay, you could be making .60 after 6 months.

Great company for sure!

Good deal! If I can answer any questions just let me know.

Once I get out on the trainers truck I will post a bit more often. Just enjoying some hometime for now. Got my wifes honey-do list knocked out, so I am ready to get out there.

Hoping to hear from him soon. I know he is on the regional midwest account, so home most weekends. I am guessing I will meet up with him this weekend to head out Sunday or Monday.

Currently at home for some hometime before going out with a trainer. We do get paid for the week at the 600 a week training pay. They will reimburse me the cost of a greyhound ticket for the drive home, and again to drive to my trainer.

My trainer should contact me by Thursday to plan everything out. I will be out with him for a minimum of 21 days. Once we both feel I am ready to go out on my own I will graduate the training program, get my truck, and hit the road.

I have enjoyed everything so far. I have learned a ton, and still have a ton to learn.

Just a quick update, you all be safe out there!

Maverick CDL Sponsorship Program

And absolutely true about Maverick and their promises....none broke with me. No misleading....just truth. Weston was great for me, all of their recruiters are "no BS" type of people. They will ask a bunch of questions to be sure you are a good fit. They do a good job of qualifying you before you are invited to orientation. I really liked that. I felt comfortable that there would be no issues once I arrived, just get to work and learn all I can.

For me.....the agility test wasn't hard at all. Just some basic stuff. I have seen several older people complete it with no issues. Craig Ryan has an awesome video on youtube that describes the agility test very well. I recommend going and checking that out. If you have any specific questions about it juat let me know.
