i was just approved for tmc and will be going with them now as i was afraid i wouldnt get approved by them because of where i live. check out this website. the guy has what he makes there however he is above the starting rate and you would be elligable for the rate above the starting rate after one month based on your performance. http://www.ak49bwl.com/extras/tmc.php?do=index now i dont know much about maverick because i am way out of their hiring area and just never looked them up. what kind of specific questions do you have. i may be able to help as i have been researching companies since march

I've been doing research since around then too and I know everything the internet says about maverick including their webpage lol. I was glued to it for about 48 straight hours.

I am mainly looking for an insiders view of their company.

I'm interested on going to TMC also! But I'm concerned about there orientation. I read on Old Schools orientation diary that he had to climb up the side of the trailer. Im only 5`6, I would need a running start to climb the side. Haha!

My girlfriend's ex actually works for TMC, and he told me if I do end up getting accepted by TMC to come to orientation and training prepared... He said TMC makes it tough on you and really sees what you r capable of during orientation and training.

im 5'7" and even as a kid i never had a prob getting into my grandfather's reefer. a flat bed is not going to be a problem trust me. plus in flatbedding you will have to do it every time you tarp and almost every time you chain or strap.

Reefer:

A refrigerated trailer.

Lol idk bout the whole jumping or climbing a trailer thing but I'd definately brush up haha. I have been non-stop studying and preparing for trucking school to make sure the ONLY thing I have to worry about is learning to drive a semi...

I'm with you guys, I'm 5'10", but according to my wife I'm 5'7", I don't know which ones right but she's usually right so I'll say 5'7". The trailers really aren't hard to climb, it's easier than a fence because you have the rub-rail to stick your fingers into for grip. No running start needed. You'll do just fine on that.

I just finished training with Maverick flatbed division, I can tell you that they dont play they are very serious. They have very good training, u stay on campus they have a hotel on their property wuth vans u can use, they have a gym an a basketball goal plus a walking track, its a real nice place but you will have a roomate. You do classroom for a week they feed you the first week an give you $50 they only feed lunch your on your own for breakfast an dinner, you do hands on training the next week, that last day of hands on you find out who your trainer is. Overall the training is great but some of the reasons they send people home is petty but i understand.
