Boyd is probably not the flatbed company you're looking for. Upper management and the administrative staff look down their noses and are very condescending toward the drivers. My impression is the drivers are looked upon as little more than trained monkeys. It is apparent Boyd has little regard for drivers as evidenced by the orientation: substandard meals, disorganized topic presentation, unpleasant facilitators, and inconveniently located accomodations. In addition, the pay is among the lowest in the industry and benefits are expensive for a family. The sign on bonus program is a joke, paid out over many, many months, while the referral bonus is even more laughable. The turnover rate is 100% which is to be expected considering the fact that the only thing not deducted from your check is the chaplain service. They want perfect securement and tarping but only pay $26.00 per load. I apologize for not giving more specifics about my own experience, but I do not want to be "black listed" by Boyd which they have been accused of doing by several drivers I know.

Something not right about the administrative staff
