Boyd Brothers Transportation, Inc. guarantees $900 a week for 8 weeks for new drivers that join their company.
Clayton, Alabama. Starting a new career in transportation should be exciting and fulfilling, that’s why Boyd Bros. implemented a $900 per week guarantee earlier this year. The program was designed to take the uncertainty out of changing carriers and has really made an impact with drivers. The $900 per week guarantee allows drivers to shift from van to flatbed without financial risk.
Transitioning to Boyd has never been easier now that Boyd Bros. gives drivers an opportunity to polish their flatbed techniques and get comfortable with their new role. Drivers now have the assurance that they will have ample time to learn the system and be successful. Jeff Hopkins, Boyd Bros. VP of Operations said, “We implemented the minimum pay for the first few weeks of truck assignment to give a level of security to our newest drivers that will protect them financially from situations that might be detrimental to them in the first few weeks of transitioning to Boyd Bros. We extended the period to 8 weeks as an added level of security to help with the transition.”
Boyd Bros is happy to take the risk out of making a career change. Chris Cooper, President of Boyd Companies said, “Guaranteeing a base pay for 8 weeks, helps our team members take their time learning a new company. This also sets a baseline pay for their family, that’s easily attainable once they become acclimated with their new professional home. The average Boyd driver makes much more than our $900 guarantee.”
