    I worked at Knight Transportation full-time

    Pros

    It's a great place of people, who will treat you like family. They will take care of you if you work hard and do what they say.

    Cons

    You will work 10+ hours a day in the office on salary pay with no overtime. You have to take your laptop home every night because there is no one to cover your accounts while you are out of the office. And if you want a vacation, it is not approved unless you, yourself, find someone to train and cover your accounts.

    Advice to Management

    HPWP is a tool you were given, use it! It wasn't meant to be picked apart. Staffing is terrible in the office, so get a real HR team in there to hire, track and counsel personnel/issues across the board so you have more time to develop your team.

    Pros

    Mangers are hard working people. Who treat you like family. You get what you put into it. If your a stay at home person then that's the pay you will get . Nothing...

    Cons

    People can talk bad all they want about knight but as I have said you get what you put in it no ones to blame if your not happy but yourself. For this who have bad things to say Grow up. You weren't born with a silver spoon in your mouth. Work hard and play hard. Your choces.

    Advice to Management

    Doing a great job keep being a family.

    I worked at Knight Transportation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked at Knight for almost four years. Overall, loved my experience there. Plenty of opportunity for growth and ability to relocate and/or switch positions if interested. Loved the ability to work from home if necessary.

    Cons

    Hours are long, but that's the industry. If one person was on vacation or out there was no plan for coverage. Corporate often was disconnected from what actually everyone at the service centers dealt with.

    Advice to Management

    Stay connected not only with drivers but also Service Centers employees.
