    Anyone have any information on Hornady Transportation? Like how are their trucks, how do they treat their drivers. etc? What cpm do they start new student drivers off with? How much do they pay you while out on the road with a trainer?

    I've been with Hornady 2 years! I don't have a thing to complain about! Freight great at times and slow from time to time...just as any company. The pay is top notch for the flatbed industry. I think they start company drivers between 45 and 52cpm depending on recent flatbed experience. I make good money, I run hard, and I do what it takes to get money. Everyone doesn't do that out here. Guys complain sometimes they can't make money but then they are the ones hanging out at the truck stop or CB shop!! They never once lied to me about anything when i got here. People are nice and helpful....you have good personalities and bad ones where ever you go. Me personally I am proud I found this place and I'm proud to say I'm a driver for one of the best!! I'm a lease operator I like it. Don't be a idiot do your research learn the business and pay your taxes and it's a good deal.
