    Unfortunately yes. My understanding is that student drivers get them but experienced drivers do not and students may have them removed after 3 to 6 months IIRC.

    Depends on where you live, I live in SC and they run me mostly in PA NC OH TA and VA. A driver I went through orientation with lives in AL and usually stays out west more in OK MO TX AR AND IN. We haul a lot for Gerdau and US Gypsum.

    Boyd is owned by www.Daseke.com which owns 13 flatbed companies.
    Waggoners Trucking uses owner-operators.

    Boyd bros is running owner op job ads on indeed. I've heard good and bad about company drivers but nothing about o/o

    I know we have O/O's but that's about it. Boyd only pays them 70% of line haul IIRC. Most Boyd O/O's are lease drivers that paid their truck off and just never left. Trucks starting with 8 or 9 are company (8915 or 9004), 15 and 12 are lease (12085 or 15173)and 20 is O/O (20078)
