    Pros

    Close knit terminals where dispatcher talk to you and know your name. Keep you running but don't expect "Super Truckers".

    Cons

    Probably not the top pay for a new driver.

    Good place to start if you have no experience. But move on for better pay after a year.

    Pros

    Knight has a solid presence and huge infrastructure especially now that they are merged with Swift.

    Cons

    Underpaid, underpaid, underpaid, underpaid, underpaid...I know my worth. This isn't it. Merely a stepping stone.

    This company is dysfunctional

    Pros

    There are terminals most of the time along the route

    Cons

    Finding myself once again sitting on a load as a result of inadequate communication between office management and the driver (myself), can’t count that high in regards to how frequently this has happened since I started here 4 months ago. Hopefully you love you having your time wasted and losing money due to poor communication and terrible planning. Compensation here sucks as it is at 43cpm, add in the amount of time you lose working here and do the math. When I was going through the hiring process for this company, they told me they had brand new equipment, trucks and trailers both, and that their equipment was more than adequately maintained - false - enjoy sitting in a dirty, used truck with an interior left filthy by the fat sea cow that sat in it prior, no they don’t clean it out for you, and the truck has 300,000+ miles on it when you get into it, most of the bunkheaters don’t work and your batteries are constantly dying, the trailers are all rusted, and you can never find an empty because they let their customers fill empty trailers with pallets. Home time is said to be 1 day off for every week out, but they could’ve shoved it from day one for me, I go home whenever I want for as long as I want, I don’t get paid enough for the bs in this company to care. Thought I would have a lot of positive things to say about working here, but its all flowers for the first month (if that) before you see how dysfunctional this company is. They’re just another mega-carrier, don’t expect anything more or less than reality. I’ve about had enough, seeking my way out already
