I have been working at Knight Transportation full-time (Less than a year)
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.
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
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work!
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Knight Transportation (Las Vegas, NV) in November 2012.
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
Pretty cut and dried.
