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

    Pros

    My direct managers were fantastic. Great culture in that respect.

    Cons

    Over work their employees. Bad training. You have to be a yes man, and not fail at ANY task given to you.

    Advice to Management

    Better training. Reasonable hours to work.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plainfield, IN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Knight Transportation (Plainfield, IN) in May 2017.

    Interview

    A recruiter from the corporate office in Phoenix called on Monday and asked me basic questions about my job history then scheduled me for an interview that same week on Thursday. I came in the for the interview and the person who I was told to ask for takes me somewhere I can wait. 5 minutes later someone else lets me know it was cancelled yesterday and the Arizona recruiter should've let me know. That was it - no explanation for why it was cancelled and I never received a call. I ended up letting the recruiter know I was no longer interested.
