Driver (Former Employee) – Little Rock, AR – February 10, 2016
Maverick is a pretty good company. My only negative for the company was in training. Throughout orientation and securement training, students are constantly threatened with being sent home. After a career in the military, I would advice instructors to encourage instead of threaten. In the long run, you will have a much happier and motivated driver.

Maverick Transportation is a very good place to get into transportation and learn things dealing with transportation. The advancement is nothing great, it takes a long time and worthy employees seem to get looked over.
Driver trainee (Former Employee) – Little Rock AR and cross country – December 21, 2015
The trainers in Little rock are a fun bunch if you don't rock the boat.Best to get along and keep your head down. Driver trainer was a piece of work.Did not follow safetry rules you learned at the shop.Said this tis the real world and this is how its done. Had the brakes smoking going down a long hill first day(the trainer that is).Had me use a jake brake in the rain at night,later learned that's a no-no.Taught bad securement and unsafe methods.Very dirty truck.

worked here them for awhile really like the friends i made their. The Fleet manager i had really bad he did not care at all about his drivers. The managers were very indiffent in how the company was run.

Management has to improve. Too many chiefs and not enough Indians. Lots of gossip and finger pointing in certain departments when they should be concentrating on their jobs & not who does what!!! My regret was ever coming to work for Maverick.

Driving cross country was a life changing experience. Lots of miles on the road, no life with family. loading raw material was a long wait sometimes. Driving cross country was a life changing experience. Lots of miles on the road, no life with family. loading raw material was a long wait sometimes.

Overall maverick is a good place to work, decent home time pretty good pay, very willing to work with you. lots of policies to follow that seem a bit unnecessary but its their company and they like it run a certain way, can't blame them.
Commercial Truck Driver (Former Employee) – North Little Rock, AR – July 2, 2015
Training program is a never ending migraine. From the military style of training to the constant tests and hoops and loops to jump through. The staff is a very small one with very few Indians, but a lot of chiefs with little to no power. Training at ASUN was by far the best and most helpful thing about the program itself.
Student Driver (Former Employee) – North Little Rock, AR – June 21, 2015
Non stop information, classes 7 days a week. I learned a lot about loading an unloading flat bed trailers. Proper ways of chaining, strapping, and tarp-ing loads. Management seem to be fly by the seat of your pants. Coworkers had a good sense of hummer for the most part. It was good to be around good hummer while we pushed through the stress, and exhaustion at the top gun of the tr4ucking industry.
They only wanted the best of the best. They want safe drivers
To much information packed in a short amount of time
Ok company to start a career with but only one year

The health insurance and the training is good at Maverick and that's about it. Pay is average at best, once you reach highest pay your miles reach lowest miles. Made more money in 2013 than in 2014 and went from .42 to .52 per mile. (figure that one out) Very hard work if you haul Steel or Glass and get paid incredibly average for the work. The Refer group was run so poorly 1/2 the staff quit at one point, the turnover rate at Maverick is said to be about 168% If you like to wait hours and sometimes a day for a load Maverick is for you. Sorry I had to sugar coat this review, worked for Maverick for three years. (two years too long)
Good Company buts needs to look at management teams
Human Resources Generalist (Former Employee) – North Little Rock, AR – December 27, 2014
This is great company for drivers, but this company lacks the ability to carry that into the office setting. Office employees were only recognized if they happen to be friends of owners of have been there extended periods of time. No advancement is available in the department that I was in and the turn over was almost at 100%.
Hands down best flat bed training around,there training program is excellent. 500 a week while your in Training and with a trainer for minimun of 21 days. I drove over the road. Liked it truck broke down they gave me another one. They take care of there employess. I always got home when i was suppose to otr. Now in dedicated to have more time with my family. Current employee and very good company to work for esp if you have no experience and are just starting out.trucks are governed at 65 and the auto is nice. Very safety orientened company.

They try and act professional, but once your there a couple days you learn its all a game. Its Mericks way or the highway. Even if they know they are wrong its still the Maverick way. I went for orientation and when they was about to offer me a job I got the heck out of there.
if you are a little slow this is the place for you.
they treat and teach you like you are a 1st grader.
