I have heard they are a good company. Knew a fella awhile back that liked em. They have top tier training pay and there trucks have alot of features: 6ac ports 6dc ports, wifi and satellite all built in. I considered them but because they are an automatic fleet and only hired for their tempered glass division in my area I choose different.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Does anybody know anything about Maverick? Good, Bad?

I talked to one of their Recruiters at the Local Truck Driving School & I got a info packet from them but have since decided to go with Prime Inc. They have a good starting pay and really nice trucks but like RedGator said they're Auto's and I'm also in the Glass hiring area and want to start in Refer but the money is really good for a Fresh CDL graduate plus they give you a full size truck.

Here's the info for the Glass Division Training pay is $550 a week then starting pay is .40 after 3 months it jumps to .43 and in 6 months it goes to .48 Top pay in Glass is .52 a mile

Maverick is a good company. In fact, it is on my list of companies to apply with. I may have to wait until I get into a little better shape to actually go to work for them, but I've heard more good than bad about them. They have some good looking trucks too! Since I live in Indiana, I'm in the area they hire for regular flatbed loads; steel, aluminum, that sort of thing.

Maverick Video

Maverick does not have full size trucks. They only use mid roofs due to weight issues. The trucks you saw in the video are the ones everyone in Maverick uses. Even the refer division uses mid roof trucks.

By Full Size I just meant bigger than the LW Trucks which Prime uses for their company drivers.. The Size of their Trucks vs Primes was the Maverick sales pitch the guy used when we talked about company drivers and pay etc etc...I know I still have a lot to learn but now I know there is a difference in roof heights..hehehe Thanks
