    Pros

    OTR was Great south west regional, all drom and hook, no delays in finding loads, and pay was always correct or swiftly resolved on daily pay.

    Cons

    Need more local drop and parking lots near where they have dedicated work, not everyone and just park a rig in the city for hometime. Need to get rid of the sliding pay scale and set local pay and LTL pay to compete with Estes and ABF or no one will run local loads when next years cost of living kicks in, and EPA standards arise

    Advice to Management

    Dont change much, just keep inproving, its a Great place to work, and other then keeping every terminal clean and free laundry vs some hit and mis, all was OK

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Knight Transportation (Phoenix, AZ) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Hired day of after 15 minute interview. Panel interview with "Director of Sales" and two other people I didn't even end up working under. It was really easy, they were more interested in which accounts I worked with rather than what skills I brought to the table. The commission and bonus structure was very vague and the PTO plan was not described at all.
