Current Employee - Driver

I have been working at USA Truck full-time

Pros

Great company if you like longevity

Cons

Not any I can think of

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Knight Transportation full-time

Pros

Knight really respects you and takes time to develop you as an employee. As a woman I have never felt like I was passed up by any males for a promotion. Transportation gives me the opportunity to... solve new challenges everyday.

Cons

The hours are long since trucking is 24/7.
