Posted last week about struggling in CDL school, many of you who replied asked me to keep you guys updated on progress

Glad you’re sticking to it. I don’t think your instructor should be screaming at you unless you maybe did something unsafe. Good luck and keep your chin up.

What’s going on Maverick???

Thanks everyone. I guess I’m just impatiently waiting. I suppose I’ll throw out a few apps in the meantime. Also waiting on passport and TWIC to come in.

I’m really eager to get in a truck and out of the factory. Pay is good but it’s just not for me anymore.

Will definitely keep y’all posted when I get an orientation date wherever that may be.

What’s going on Maverick???

I really appreciate the replies guys. (And Gal) As for TMC they gave no reason at all. Seemed like everything was going along well until I sent a picture of my CLP. I’m aware of their high standards as far as appearance and made sure to ask my recruiter questions about my tattoos on my throat and both hands knowing the policy is to keep them covered. I went as far as to buy flesh tone UV gloves and figured we’re all wearing neck gaiters anyway. At least I got a NO before showing up so that’s a blessing.

As for R.E West I only mentioned the proximity because I’m in Clarksville and can be home every night before on the road training.

I was told the company that handles the background checks at Maverick keeps pushing back the delivery date. But it’s just us guys in TN and TX waiting apparently.

Maybe I can forward my check from TMC Lol. I definitely don’t want to limit myself to one company but I’m afraid if I apply for too many companies at once I might lose an opportunity putting a YES on hold to wait on a NO if that makes sense.

Btw I have no tattoos that would be considered offensive or vulgar. I just have more than I can hide unless it’s 20 degrees outside.

What’s going on Maverick???

Hey guys. New here and trying to get started in flatbed with no CDL. I applied at Maverick and TMC as they were my top two for paid training. I did the high road training on here which was great by the way. Got my CLP in TN and sent it to TMC who denied me the next day (must have been the tattoos the recruiter told me not to worry about). Anyhow I would be very happy to go to Little Rock. It’s been a month since I applied at Maverick and they keep telling me they’re waiting on background checks and it keeps getting pushed back but that I’m in a good hiring area and everything else looks good. TMC sent me a copy of my clean background and MVR very quickly. Am I just being impatient or jerked around. Seems like it should not take this long. Anyone been through Maverick CDL lately? I searched the forums and didn’t see anything too recent on them. As far as other local paid outfits I’m about 30 minutes away from R.E. West but their pay didn’t look all that great. Still an option though. I know someone is going to say you don’t have to do flatbed but it’s the more physical work and better CPM that appeals to me. Thanks.
