    He knows. He's just trying to get everyone all riled. There are literally...four, you can count them on one hand, FOUR people in this world who for whatever reason like Knight. 1500 miles a week and lot's of free time to scrutinize their payroll which also leaves plenty of time to spend on the phone trying to get paid for work done weeks ago.

    "Knights debt free!" Yea no shiiiit you stupid cheerleader they "forget" to pay everyone for about everything. 8 out of 10 Knight drivers has been there one week and will be gone next week. Of course their not going to get paid in full.

    Only time in my life I EVER spent THREE weeks out on the road and didn't even get home with the miles to prove it despite repeated requests for a loads was of course with Knight.

    Seriously get off your fat duff and go see what Knight can do for you. :biggrin_2559::biggrin_2559:

    Here's one. Knight is an anti-driver company

    Sorry Erick. Perfect example of someone just trying to earn a living and instead getting chewed up and spit out by Knight. Theres no where to go but UP after Knight.

    Yeah, but don't you agree it's a little sad that they make a big deal out of having 1 person staying with a company for 10 years. If it was good, don't you think there would be more than one or two drivers a month staying for 10 years?

    After serving an 11 month sentence at Knight penitentiary, I mean Knight refrigerated, I came to the conclusion that the only people that stayed longer than 1-2 years were "Damaged Goods"!

    Either they were total idiots, too stupid to understand how they were getting shafted, or unable to convince any other company to hire them due to their idiotic driving habits or Knight's habit of sabotaging their DAC records!!!

    Anyone that had any sense and managed to keep their noses clean, got the hell out of there pretty quickly!!!

    When I hired on with Knight in Dec 2003, I came across many drivers who had been there 10+ years----when I left 5 yrs later, "I" was one of the oldtimers!!! It went from a driver's co. to a Swift wannabe......:biggrin_2553:

    Some, maybe a lot, of what you say "may" be true, but 1500 miles a week is just PURE ########.

    You have an axe to grind with Knight, and while they are a big, mega carrier where you can get lost in the mix, they are not as bad as you portray them to be. A driver works with one or two DM's, and if you do your job, they will recognize that (why would they #### on a good driver?), and keep you running (legally, I might add, since Knight runs eLogs).

    If you ##### all the time, refuse loads because they don't suit you, and just generally make an ### of yourself, well, yes, you may have a bad impression of Knight (and any other OTR company).

    And, ONCE AGAIN, a rational person has to ask themselves why you keep coming back to the Knight forum after you have been terminated (or quit) by them so long ago? Pure philanthropy? I doubt it, most people would just move on, and chalk it up to experience. You, and a couple of others, seem to have an obsession.

    Let it go, it's a liberating feeling.
