    I once made $1,200 in one week at knight. But it never happened again. I know i could do it again now knowing how the systematic machine turns at knight transport out of Phoenix AZ, if i were ever to return.:biggrin_1square10::biggrin_25518:

    Ok sorry you are married to or have another family
    Member that's a knight dispatcher, load planner, etc.
    The only people I know that do good there have friends
    Or family on the inside and they get to pick and choose
    The good loads otherwise get ready to bend over and take
    The "lance" with a smile and still try to pay your bills
    On less than 500 a week. Drive 150 miles between both ways
    Between Memphis and Conway, AR in your car on your
    Dime just to have sometime( company policy: can't take
    Your truck home for sometime). They will use your truck while
    U are on hometime as a loaner truck for others in the shop so
    Clean out your truck when u go home unless u want
    Things to go missing as some knight drivers have
    Sticky fingers. Don't ever plan on taking more than three
    Days off even for a medical purpose, family death,etc. They
    Will try get around FMLA as much as possible w/o
    Breaking the law.

    Sounds like a great company to work for where do I
    Sign up to "get behind the K"

    Be safe out there drivers

    I think their time-off issues are off the wall. Okay they own the truck, sure it belongs to them. However I love how they make drivers clean their truck out if taking off more than 3 days. Have you ever been too a Knight yard that did not have any less then 50 trucks available. Some are waiting on service. Even more are cleaned out because the guy just quit. Now Joe Driver pulls in after a MONTH on the road and he has to clean his truck out so the stupid Knight idiots can use it. They have plenty of trucks to use. They just can't believe a driver would go on hometime and actually come back so it's their way of saying "take your trash with you."

    BTW I never had to clean out mine. Even when I went on vacation. Yes vacation.....they were once tolerable. Not anymore.

    I can't stand this auto fill in the word thing..."sometime"
    In my post above is supposed to be hometime in both cases
    In that particular sentence.

    I could not have said it better myself...glad my days
    W/ companies like knight are over. I pull for a small family
    Owned heavy equipment company in north little rock, AR. Never gone
    More than 3 days make great money. My boss pays my insurance and shares profits at the end of the year. On my vacation this
    Year he gave me and my wife the keys to his place on lake hamiton
    In hot springs AR.

    I don't think I gets any better than this and knight still
    Calls me once or twice a month to come back over there

    I hear all the old knight drivers that were with them from the start
    Up to about 6 years ago say that knight was a great company and
    Really did care about the drivers. What happened?

    Guess one house and one jet was not enough for the Big K Kevin knight
