    I have been working at Knight Transportation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Water finds it's level. I have seen at every position the chance to sink or swim.

    Cons

    Everyone is treated more equal then they should be. What I mean is not related to race, sex, etc. but if you are awesome you are still asked the same questions someone who is awful should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher pay for excellence.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Knight Transportation in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by a senior level recruiter. It was not long and was a review of my professional background. She told me about the company's environment and asked if I was comfortable working in a male-dominated environment. The interview consisted of typical interview questions, like "where do you see yourself in 5 years" and "why do you want to work for us?"
