Maverick Transportation announced changes to their driver pay scale, including a pay increase for experienced drivers and a significant increase to pay-per-mile drivers. The pay hike will benefit all incoming and current drivers. They increase went into effect on January 4, 2015.
Drivers with one year or more of driving experience will receive a higher starting pay with Maverick’s new pay-for-experice program. In addition, Maverick says the pay rates will increase for each year of verifiable driving experience.
Under the new pay program, experienced drivers will earn between $60,800 and $66,500, depending on years of experience and what division they’ve driving in.
“Drivers without experience that come in as part of Maverick’s industry leading student program also received mileage increases. Students that come to Maverick with a brand new Class A CDL or less than 6 months of driving experience can now expect to average over $53,000 their first year. Those that come to Maverick with 6-12 months of experience will average closer to $57,500,” Maverick states.
Maverick says that many dedicated accounts also received pay increases as well.
“This is a significant pay increase across the board for all Maverick drivers,” said Director of Recruiting Brad Vaughn. “We are looking for the most professional and safest drivers on the road. Maverick’s pay package, extra incentives for experienced drivers, training, equipment, and overall recruiting package is truly second to none.”
