    Not a bad company to work for, but certainly not the best.

    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.
    Increase pay.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed 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?"
