    Yep so they can SCCRREEEWWW you, some places will say not eligible for rehire and from what I have seen most companies do report on your DAC report that you are eligible for rehire upon review

    Geeze, man. Seems like you are really bitter toward Knight. Don't know what you ran into there, but if it is actionable, then sue them. But whether you can sue them or not, for God sake, try to get past it. Don't let it eat at you until you wind up with severe physical problems over it.

    I'm not kidding here, man. Stuff like this can actually screw you up for the rest of your life. DON'T LET IT! It really is up to you.

    I worked for them for a while, several years ago. Obviously, I was not happy with them, or I would still be there. But try to move on, for your own sake.

    No, They want good, let me say that again GOOD experienced drivers. From what you have said about your past employers not wanting you back. You are not that good. I drive for Knight Refrigerated out of Idaho Falls. I know the recruiter in Id. Falls. he is a good man. He has LOTS of apps so he dosen't waist his time with drivers who have proven that they are not up to the preformins level required to work at Knight Refrigerated. 5 yrs and 3 companies don't want you back. I can tell you that you are NOT what Knight Refrigerated is looking for. GOOD DRIVERS WITH GOOD SAFTY RECORDS THAT DO THE JOB RIGHT WITH OUT GIVING THE COMPANY ALOT OF GRIFE.:biggrin_25516:

    Unfortunately for what you just wrote, its completely wrong. I worked for knight for 2 years, 0 accidents, 0 incidents, and 3000+ miles every week. Before i go to far and you say what you want to say, refer side and dry side are the same company and are slowly being run the exact same way. What was said earlier about them wanting good experienced drivers is a load of crap, complete crap. They (dry side) is letting go a vast majority of their GOOD employees to hire their driver trainees or as knights dumb idea calls them squires. The squire program and their hiring has made it to where a large number of their drivers have been fired or laid off for no apparent reason, myself included but thats cool and all i had more work lined up. People who dont look at the whole picture when it comes to knight needs to know this company is there not for the drivers and not for their customers but its for their pocket liners. I think someone needs to remind them that they are the be home more carrier, as a majority of their drivers (unless they like to hit their knees in a timely fassion) make it home once a month and for 3 days... i constantly had to fight to get home when i needed to be. and dont try and tell me i did something wrong about the matter, i did everything as it should have been done.:biggrin_25510:

    1st Knight Trans L.L.C. and Knight Refrigerated ARE NOT THE SAME COMPANY:biggrin_25516:
    Not even close. They are owend by the same copr. Knight Trans Inc. but they are not the same company.
    They have 2 differt DOT numbers, 2 differt Company Pres. and they have there owen paperwork.

    2nd, the fact that you ONLY have 1yr exp. says it all. Thats how much your oppion is worth on this matter.

    I have to step in here and say that Kabar, please work on your spelling a tad bit more. Sure they are "different" companies, that's why I've never seen a reefer truck pulling a dry van and a red fleet pulling a reefer....

    Oh wait.

    It's like minor changes but yes, the paperwork is the same (different color tripsheets) logbooks say LLC, but are almost the same, and we share the same yards.

    Two completely different companies. I mean, come on, one is grey the other red! By that standard, Knight Intermodal is a different company because the tassle on the knight is green not yellow like the other red trucks!

    I have to agree with you Sad Panda, my husband has been getting a lot of dry loads from that side lately because of some of the slowness going on right now. It's like saying Toyota and Acura aren't the same company (well that's a better example because at least they have completely different names) but they are still owned by the same company and share facilities. We live in Las Vegas and he drops his trailer at the Knight yard and uses their terminals so yeah... I won't venture to say much else other than I agree with you on this :biggrin_25517:

    Well let me put it this way. If they are the same. Then why do you have to quite Knight Trans and apply to Knight Refrigerated like ever one else if you want to work for them??? Could be because THERE ARE TWO DIFFERENT COMPANIES.

    And you just try using a Knight Ref trip sheet to get paid. You will never see that pay. It will go to the wrong people.

    And if they are the same company then why are the Knight Trans drivers setting around begging for a 300 miles trip when Knight Ref. is moving lots of 1200+ loads? Oh thats right. THEY ARE TWO DIFERENT COMPANIES!!
