Maverick Transportation has announced a pay raise for student truck drivers as well as a pay plan that takes experience into consideration.
The pay increase for students is applicable to all over-the-road divisions, bringing starting student pay to 47 to 53 cents per mile depending on division. The company also rolled out a pay for experience plan that will give months of service credit for all drivers.
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.
This is the fourth pay increase for Maverick Transportation drivers in the past few months. The Arkansas-based carrier rolled out a $.05 per mile increase for its OTR temperature control division in April.
“Maverick is excited to announce this significant pay increase for our student drivers.” said 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.”
