Hello Everyone,

I filled out the Maverick CDL sponsorship application about 9 days ago, the day after I filled it out a recruiter called me, went over qualification questions. After saying yes I was interested, he told me he would contact me in 3 to 5 days after they verified some information. He called me the next day stating verifications were done and asked me if I had my birth certificate, I did and sent a picture of it. He called me a few hours later advising me I could start on July 15th. Which I accepted.

I am located in the Charlotte area, and have been in corporate America for the past 20 years. I look forward to my new chapter.

I did months of research on CDL sponsorship training, from Prime to TMC, etc.. Maverick was my choice for the training program, reviews and stability.

If you're thinking about attending Maverick CDL sponsorship, I will be posting here every few days, and will be more than happy to answer questions you have!

Be safe, have fun!

Thanks Z Morse

Thanks PackRat,

Recruiter called Monday to confirm start date, go over expectations (list of questions on mileage and home time).

Am driving myself to little rock, they are paying me for it.

I will get another call from him on Friday to confirm everything again.

I have been watching a lot of Dale Clay's videos on YouTube, he basically has a 3 year diary on his training and day to day life on the road with Maverick.

I will keep posting on here!

Thank you again for the warm welcome!

Some of Dale’s stuff is a little out of date. I’d check out Craig Ryan when he was with Maverick, or Neil Shane Otts.

I loved Dale Clays videos. He had a great attitude and made it look so easy. I wonder what happened to him. By the way how are things going with Maverick?
