Boyd Bros. Transportation has announced a new driver sign-on bonus and a two-cent per mile pay increase with a $1,000 weekly minimum pay guarantee.
“We are committed to creating a better OTR driving job and pay is a key factor,” said Chris Cooper, Boyd president and CEO. “This across the board increase and weekly minimum not only attracts new candidates to Boyd, but shows how we value our current drivers in a very tangible way.”
The sign-on bonus is geared for immediate payout with candidates hired by Boyd receiving $500 upon delivery of the first load and an additional six-cents per mile for the following 18 months.
“By paying the bonus with each mile driven, new drivers at Boyd know that they will receive their bonus. It’s not a gimmick,” said Dwight Bassett, Boyd chief operating officer. “The bonus should accumulate to around $10,000 with experienced flatbed drivers starting at 57-cents-per-mile plus a monthly productivity bonus.”
