I have been working at Knight Transportation full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
With one or two exceptions, I've always been well treated and respected by fleet managers, safety, and maintenance personnel.
They've always tried, (not always successfully), to get me where in the country I need to be.
They have been upgrading their fleet the last couple years with new tractors and lots of new trailers, so the overall condition of the equipment is pretty good.Cons
The fleet managers need better software for planning and dispatching loads. J B Hunt had better software ten years ago.
Fleet managers tend to be overloaded with too many drivers, resulting in long waits on hold when calling in to resolve problems. A problem which could be at least partially alleviated with newer, better software.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Upgrade the software for fleet managers.
