Featured Review

Current Employee - Yard Hostler

I have been working at Knight Transportation full-time for less than a year

Pros

Good equipment, good people and they really do make you feel like your family. The home time is definitely top notch you can still make money while being home everyday, every other day or every 2... weeks.

Cons

They are a mega carrier so expect it to not be sunshine and rainbows and the pay could definitely be better.

Advice to Management

Be a little more understanding to a drivers point of view.
