Good people, but not always a good environment...

Manager (Former Employee)
Phoenix, AZ

ProsKnight promotes from within, so if you have a desire to work your way up, there are endless possibilities. There are also a lot of honest people in company leadership.

ConsThe benefits are generally not competitive with other major companies. Additionally, they make people salaried employees once someone is going to be making more than $32,000 per year in order to avoid paying overtime. Long hours, lousy pay.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere may be a need to hire on an outsider or two to help give a fresh perspective.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
