Good pay does not equal a good job
Shipping Clerk (Former Employee) –  Fort Smith, ARMarch 13, 2017
Immediate management had a very bad "GOD" complex. Everyone was beneath them. Hopefully, those people are gone now. Pay was good. Most drivers were not happy.

Very family oriented company that truly cares about their drivers
Truck Driver (OTR) (Former Employee) –  North Little Rock, ARFebruary 13, 2017
Very nice company. Outstanding training and student program very nice equipment. Friendly work environment with managers that truly care about their drivers. I would definitely recommend them to a student looking for a company with second to none training and safety. Very good pay even for students. Could be getting more miles, a lot of drivers sit for periods of time but they offer detention pay. Entire fleet is automatic cascadias, i know some drivers would not prefer that but they maintain their equipment very well.
Pros
Excellent training and student pay
Cons
not alot of miles

home almost every weekend, fair wages, and new equipment to work with.

Great place to work if you like otr
Truck Driver (OTR) (Current Employee) –  Little Rock, AROctober 29, 2016
Truck are equip with Apu and inverters. If Apu isn't working, truck will idle no matter what the temperature is outside. Fuel anywhere (pilot, loves) great maintenance, every 25k pm.

Guaranteed weekend pay if they can't find you a load but they usually do.

Been here for a year now in the glass division and still like it. Freight does slow down sometimes but we can pull regular flatbed loads for the same pay rate.

Dispatch is great and manager doesn't bother you if you know what you're doing.

There is dedicated position and sometimes there's opening in the office if you live near a terminal.

Hometime is excellent. 2 weeks out and sometimes I get 3-5 days off. You can work months at a time if you want, I'm not sure if there's a limited on hometime banking but I done 4 weeks out and got 5 days off. Now this is full days off. Not that b.s "oh you're driving home count as hometime" but full 24 hours = 1 day hometime.

Best otr company I work for
Pros
Hometime dispatcher manager driver comfort
Cons
Otr is otr. Govern at 64

Flatbed Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  North Little Rock, AROctober 1, 2016
You are able to make some money with little oversight. Most drivers are home every weekend but OTR is also available . The fleet managers are respectful and easy to work with.

Good Trucking Company
Driver (Current Employee) –  Little Rock, ARSeptember 19, 2016
I've been with Maverick (flatbed) over eight years, and if it wasn't a good company, I would not be here. Pay and benefits are second to none. They give you all the tools to be successful. Your fleet manager tries to get you home every weekend, but it depends where you live.
Pros
Good equipment, pay, and Hometime
Cons
Not really con: no matching 401K

WC Claims Examiner (Former Employee) –  North Little Rock, ARAugust 29, 2016
Management team are GREAT! I was properly trained to do my job efficiently and effectively.
The only negative is they do not have a match on 401K. This would be a fantastic +++ if they did.

Don't go to work at Maverick
Driver (Former Employee) –  North Little Rock, ARAugust 23, 2016
Bad training no miles Bad fleet manager. They could care less about the drivers. Maverick asked me to stay out over the weekend every time I did they laid me over in a truck stop. My last week I got 770 miles. Just because the fleet manager didn't like me. No money to be made at maverick.
Pros
None
Cons
Fleet manager lies.

Enjoyed the driving all around country.
Licensed CDL Driver (Former Employee) –  Little Rock, ARJune 8, 2016
Maverick Transport is a good company to work for, however, they are not consistent in providing notifications as to where to pick up the next drop or provide sufficient time to reach drop off locations. Inconsistent in providing sufficient home time as was notified in employment briefing and training; hardest part of job was dealing with traffic/road construction/unreasonable timeline to make deliveries or pick up loads; best part was driving around the country; management was too inconsistent in their load assignments and timelines to meet.
Pros
CDL Driving Experience
Cons
Too much inconsistencies across the board

Excellent Management
CDL Class A Driver (Former Employee) –  North Little Rock, ARMay 9, 2016
The company has great benefits and the management is supportive. The down side of it when it slows down it is hard to provide for your household. You may only get $300 dollar checks and may only work 2 or 3 days. You can't provide for your family when this happens.
Pros
Management is supportive
Cons
When it's slow you may only work 2 or 3 days a week.

Waste of time
Driver (Current Employee) –  Little Rock, ARApril 28, 2016
They hire 35 people per week for training and then start letting people go for various reasons. Is very disorganized. Trainers don't know what's going on when asked questions. Wouldn't recommend wasting your time busing there and back.
Pros
2 free meals
Cons
disorganized
