    Pros

    They try to get you home every weekend. .

    Cons

    Flatbed is hard, dirty work not for lazy people. The steel and building industry are slow so freight slowed to a level I needed to find other work in another commodity.

    Advice to Management

    When freight is slow, DONT keep hiring people.

    I worked at Maverick USA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This was the first trucking job I had and they trained me well, kept me running, and paid me promptly. The trucks and the dispatchers were top notch as well.

    Cons

    Same as any trucking company. Long times away from my family. I took a local trucking job as soon as I could

    Advice to Management

    Good stuff

    Pros

    From their state of the art facilities for training, to the innovative truck technologies implemented, Maverick provides all the tools to give you a rewarding career.

    Not a broad offering of services. Specialized, flatbed, temperature control only.

    I worked at Maverick USA full-time

    Pros

    The staff at Maverick care about their drivers and their families. Their training programs are excellent, and they take care of their equipment.

    Cons

    I feel like the minimum weekly pay could be a little bit better considering the fact that a truck driver is away from home and taking care of the company's truck, trailer, and freight the entire week, even if there is not a lot of miles to drive.

    I worked at Maverick USA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent pay and insurance is the best you can find. This company is great and if I were going to be able to stay OTR I would not want to work anywhere else.

    Cons

    The biggest con of this job is so little home time. You can go home but then your money is quite low on those weeks where you went home for the weekend, only a day or two. They pay high for trucking but you must stay out for several weeks to reap the rewards of higher pay.

    Pros

    They do what they say they will and respect hard work all around. They give you what you need to get the job done right. Family oriented and fair minded. Excellent Ownership and Management. Top of the line training. Highly recommended.

    Cons

    Only that which is commonplace within the nature of the industry. I have no negatives, it is what I thought it would be.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.

    Pros

    Pay, home time, equipment and pretty easy loads compared to other flatbed companies.

    Cons

    All trucking companies have their issues, however Mavericks issues are minor.

    Advice to Management

    Ditch the co-pilot system and replace with something better.
