    We are hiring company drivers, but having a hard time pulling in owner operators.

    What is it that Owner Operators are looking for, from a company???

    We would love to build our fleet and I am hoping you can help tell me some ideas of what it is that is needed to attract more...

    Thank you for your time in advance!

    You paying by the mile or percentage?
    I would say most experienced O/O are looking for percentage.

    I think you would attract more with a percentage of the load than with mileage.
