    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.
