Maverick Transportation LLC, one of the National Transportation Institute’s Top Pay Carriers, recently announced a pay raise for student drivers and a new pay for experience plan. The student pay increase is applicable to all OTR divisions, bringing student starting pay to $.47-$.53 per mile depending on division. In addition, the new pay for experience plan will give months of service credit for all drivers.
“Maverick is excited to announce this significant pay increase for our student drivers,” says John Culp, president of Maverick Transportation. “We recognize that it is imperative that our industry bring new entrants into the truck driving profession and we are proud to be a leader in creating that opportunity.”
The pay increase, which goes into effect June 17, 2018, will bring starting pay for student drivers to $.47 per mile for flatbed regional division, $.49 per mile for flatbed OTR division, $.53 per mile for OTR glass division, and $.49 per mile for OTR temperature control division. This is the fourth pay increase for Maverick Transportation drivers in recent months. The Arkansas-based carrier rolled out a $.05 per mile increase for its OTR temperature control division in April.
Additionally, Maverick will now give months of service credit for all drivers on the new pay for experience plan. All drivers, including student and experienced will receive pay for verifiable months of service credit, up to a maximum of 48 months. Maverick’s $5,000 sign-on bonus now applies to all drivers with at least six months verifiable OTR experience.
