    I have been working at Knight Transportation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Knights awesome for newbies! Got 1 yr under my belt! I can honesty say its beena pleasure cruise! However, im out 5weeks & go home for 5 days.

    Management good, solid good. Safety get on you if you dont follow company rules, remember they got a job to do too!

    Lots of miles, but i drive nights & at one point i was i drove the N.E. i had the very best dm. MATT from lakeland fl. I switched to team driving, on a Publix dedicated now. Ez work, just no sleep, teams you know. Pros lots of miles, standard pay, automatic or manuals, your choice. Volvos, Internationals, & i have seen a few kens! They are very good with their drivers, very respectful & polite. Make you feel at home. Relatively new equipment, terminals everywhere. I never stop at terms tho, i like rest stops, faster when your on the go. The benefits are there after 90days. If your a productive driver you'll be very happy at knight. For newbies, their is no better way to start a trucking career then starting out with knight.

    Cons

    Slow trucks, got me in a 62mph, im going nuts half the time, got prime & prius passing me.

    Got an inverter after 3 months pfft

    Slow trucks!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    OTR Driver Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Las Vegas, NV
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Knight Transportation (Las Vegas, NV) in November 2012.

    Interview

    I think they were very professional and courteous. Very thorough too. They did a good job of dotting the I's and crossing the T's. Seem to be lacking on getting you signed up for health insurance before you hit the road

    Interview Questions

    • They had a really good test on the FMCSA. Some random questions to see if you could make sense of it.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Pretty cut and dried.
