I want to join Maverick right now but the recruiter told me on top of doing the urine drug test they also do the hair follicle test, which can test back to 6 months he said. Back on new years i made a mistake after being good for a year and smoked that night. Does any current or recent Maverick know if they test back to 6 months? I heard the hair follicle test only goes back 3 months.

They want about 1 1/2 inches of hair..that will cover about 6 months.

Yes we do hair and urine. It's done 2nd day of orientation. If you're unsure, just wait a few more months to be safe. Maverick doesn't just bring anybody on with them, don't want to blow your chance to get hired there or anywhere else. I can answer any questions you may have.

You start at .38 with an automatic .02 bonus for the quarter (3 months). So you basically start at .40cpm. Your base pay goes up to 44cpm base pay after 6 months. You can earn up to .06 cpm in bonuses. That's flat bed, glass and tcd have different scales.

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

Drivers are often paid by the mile and it's given in cents per mile, or cpm.

Hey C.T., Do you know anyone on this site that runs Glass with Maverick? I am still 1.5 to 2 years out from being able to get into trucking ( I have to move back the the US first.) but I know in my home area Maverick hires for both flatbed and glass. I'd like to find out more about both sectors, however the website leaves a lot open. I'd like to ask some questions before I just go ahead and e-mail the company or a recruiter. Can ya help out?

There was a guy here that did glass a while ago but he left the company l. I got a buddy doing glass and have talked to several at the terminals. I may be able to help

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

I don't even have an inch of hair anywhere on my body. I shave my head, and pitters, and I am just not a hairy person. If I can't provide the minimum amount of hair, what do they, or any other company that hair tests, do?

If you can't provide hair it is considered a failed drug test. You're bound to have some hair somewhere.

My company hauls a lot of what would normally be considered flat bed loads loads, And I don't have to tarp or secure it.. just close the trailer doors hahaha. I haul forklifts, huge sheets of glass in the upright racks, roofing shingles, metal bar stock... but then we do tall paper rolls and lots of food and beverage products too.

Have fun with Maverick! My other half was a flatbedder for many many years. You'll haul some crazy cool stuff pulling a skateboard.
