I have been working at Boyd Bros. Transportation full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The driver managers that I have had are good people. The safety department is very helpful and when you need service or to fix a problem on the road just call up and tell them what you need and its done. Home weekly with a decent check

Cons

The freight is slow right now and they keep hiring more drivers every week to compound this problem. They are forcing the new hires to start on E-logs and the trailers are never reported from other drivers so every time you swap trailers its a crapshoot. In my discussion from the senior drivers that are high CPM, the new drivers that are at a lower rate of pay get the great miles while the senior drivers are low balled, but I guess that is par for the course with any big company.

Advice to Management

Stop hiring new drivers and start taking care of the good drivers you already have. Stop trying to limit what your drivers can make by selectively distributing good long runs to the new drivers to keep from "overpaying" the seasoned veterans.
