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

    Pros

    Beginning salary was pretty good and fellow employees really nice.

    Cons

    Management is horrible. No accountability, no real leadership. Not enough positive re-enforcement, just constantly told what you're doing wrong. Negative atmosphere, with a fend-for-yourself attitude. No proper training or support for new workers.

    Advice to Management

    Train new employees thoroughly and give them the support they need until they are performing well without guidance. Give more positive feedback instead of only highlighting the negatives. Understand that unrealistic expectations leads to low-morale and disappointment.

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

    Pros

    Seems like a friendly and accepting work environment at first.

    Cons

    Religious choice drives hiring decisions. Hard-working employees and women are under a very low glass ceiling with no opportunity for advancement. Employees unsuccessful in a position are promoted within the company until they find a position they blend into rather than succeed at. Harrassment compaints of any type are not taken seriously - personal experience with sexual harrassment and manager (person at fault) was promoted after complaint was made.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the quality employees and promote them accordingly. Stop allowing religious choice to choose the people to hire and/or promote. Pay more attention to employee needs and less time on how good your golf game is getting.
