    I have a lengthy thread about my experience with Knight and am about to lease a truck on with them. I pick it up on the 8th. I stay out 4-6 weeks at a time and take 3-4 days off. I grossed 65,200 dollars last year. I have slow weeks and busy weeks and some things get on my nerves but I do really well here.

    And I just realized this thread is really old. My bad.

    consider yourself lucky in 2012 September my husband pulled into a Knight Transportation terminal he called in to the dispatcher that he didn't feel well the dispatch informed him he would get right back to him. They got back to him alright three days later he was in their backyard he died of a cardiac arrhythmia. Knights transportation not a good fit for anyone. They keep me tied up in court appealing knowing that they did my husband wrong. I will continue to fight because it's the owners that allow the company to treats its employees like crap. Everyone needs to know don't let your babies grow up to work for Knight Transportation they let their drivers in my husband case rot to death.
    drvrtech77 and DRAGON64 Thank this.

    I'm sorry for your loss, and this is also one of my biggest fear's is dying in the darn truck. I spend enough time there I dont want it my last place of being.

    Now on to my point.
    I'm not trying to sound insensitive or uncaring but I'm also trying to figure out how this part is Knights fault ? He should of called the hospital or got a ride there if he felt something was wrong. I sure the hell know that if I felt bad I would not be calling in to ask permission. The call would of been somethings wrong, I'm headed to the hospital.

    From the years I worked there my terminal manager would of been all over me If I just waited around and felt something was wrong.
    TB John Thanks this.
