May Trucking Company is definitely a "starter" or "beginner" company, in that, their cents-per-mile isn't as great as other companies. However, this is not a bad thing if you are considering entering the OTR Trucker field of employment with no experience. They have incredible Driver Mangers who all have some form of life experience working in the OTR industry, as well as a unique policy called Flat Rate Pay. Under this form of payment, the driver is given $105 a day as long as they are moving freight, then every 90 days, you are given a compensation for any miles you have driven over 10,000 in a lump sum, assuming you drove over 10,000 miles. This compensation comes at the standard cents-per-mile May provides. The most outstanding feature I found while working for the company was the fact that their DMs really did understand what it was like out on the road. Some companies will hire any one to be a DM, regardless of their life experience with OTR, but because May only employs DMs who have driven before, or lived around drivers, it makes life so much easier when you're out on the road.
Great DMs, Flat Rate Pay, lots of locations to drop freight, no need for extra endorsments
Compensation not as good as other companies
