Maverick Transportation, LLC announced a pay raise for current and potential drivers, effective April 1st, 2012. The new pay structure makes Maverick one of the first fleets to move on a driver pay increase in 2012. "Everyone in our industry knows that professional drivers need, and more importantly, deserve higher pay," said Maverick's Chairman and CEO Steve Williams. "We decided to move fast in 2012 in order to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to offer the best compensation plan and the best driving job in the industry."
Under the new plan, Maverick increased tarp pay to $25, more than double the previous amount. "The increase in tarp pay alone will equal a significant pay raise for Maverick drivers," according to Director of Recruiting, Brad Vaughn. Starting pay for flatbed drivers at Maverick will now be $.42 - $.43/mile. An additional longevity incentive each year, for up to five years, was also announced across the board for all drivers. Finally, students and driver instructors will receive substantial increases in various areas including training pay and mileage incentives.
"A lot of very exciting things are happening for drivers at Maverick," added Vaughn. "We have multiple opportunities in several divisions for professional drivers. These pay raises, an expanded hiring area, a variety of dedicated positions and Maverick's continued reputation as best in class means there has never been a better time to join our fleet."
Maverick will continue to offer weekend home time in most divisions, per diem pay, fuel bonuses, detention pay, referral bonuses, and complete medical benefits.
