    I worked at Knight Transportation full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    If you want solid miles you can get them. Terminals are hit and miss but for the most part if you talk to the shop people you can get what you need to keep running. For me I could fuel where I wanted to.

    Cons

    I had a mediocre driver manager who didn't have any listening skills. Good thing I like to stay out for months on end because this guy couldn't get me home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had a couple of "unpreventable" incidents that were not severe in any way (Safety calls them accidents). They're willing to drop a highly productive driver with a clean driving record. There seems to be a division of people who do the job and the practicalness of the upper mgmt. That is probably the standard protocol these days though.

    I worked at Knight Transportation full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Beginning salary was pretty good and fellow employees really nice.

    Cons

    Management is horrible. No accountability, no real leadership. Not enough positive re-enforcement, just constantly told what you're doing wrong. Negative atmosphere, with a fend-for-yourself attitude. No proper training or support for new workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train new employees thoroughly and give them the support they need until they are performing well without guidance. Give more positive feedback instead of only highlighting the negatives. Understand that unrealistic expectations leads to low-morale and disappointment.
