Maverick increases pay for new and experienced drivers

| 1/14/2015

Keeping up with the trend of higher wages, Maverick Transportation has announced increases to its pay scale for 2015, including pay for experience and larger mileage pay.

Experienced drivers with at least one year of over-the-road driving will start at a higher pay scale. Each year of experience can lead to a higher rate. Depending on which division the driver enters, average pay can range between $60,800 and $66,500.

New drivers entering Maverick’s student program will also receive increases for mileage. Drivers with a new Class A CDL can earn an average of $53,000 their starting year. This pay also applies to truckers with less than six months of experience. Average earnings of $57,500 will be paid to those with 6-12 months of experience.

Back in July 2014, Maverick offered new drivers its Pay for Performance program. Originally only available after several months, drivers’ pay could increase by 2 to 4 cents per mile as soon as they start driving on their own. Around the same time, Maverick celebrated the grand opening of its driver training center expansion, which added more than 13,000 square feet to the facility.
