Very good company to work for. Clean environment, friendly faces, & new trucks every 3 yrs.
OTR Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Birmingham, ALJune 22, 2016
There are ups & downs on every job but traffic in crowded areas is the worse. I got used to it & adjusted well. I became an even more safe & efficient driver as time passed. The management was great but the best part of the job was the paycheck.
Pros
Freedom of the road
Cons
Being away from family

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.
Pros
Blue Cross Health Insurance
Cons
Something not right about the administrative staff

Family Oriented
RECEPTIONIST/ADMIN ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Clayton, ALJune 15, 2015
Company claims to be family oriented and they are if it is involving the family of one of the VPs or the owner. Everyone that works there is trying to find a new job.

Driver (Former Employee) –  Clayton, ALApril 6, 2012
A day at work with Boyd is more of a laid back kind of operation.They allow you to drive without hassle.I learned how to be independent as a company driver.My management skills has improved during the time I was employed with the in transacting business with all customs.The co-workers were friendly and helpful.The hardest part of the job was when I had to work in inclimate weather(snow,ice,heavy rain and etc).The most enjoyable part of the job was days just driver from city to city and enjoy seeing the different types of scenery.
