    Hello. Please give me feedback on Knight. I am going through a 5-week refresher course after being off the road for several years. Before, I drove OTR all 48 states and lastly I drove locally out of Columbus, Ohio. I am looking at Deboer and Knight. I am single: my kids are grown up and gone: and I do not own a house. I am putting my things into storage and when I finish this course, I plan to get to work immediately.

    I plan to see the country, spend my home time visiting my kids in Chicago, IL, Jacksonville, FL, and Springfield, Ohio. My main concern is staying busy and being treated fairly--not overly concerned about great pay. I plan to stay out 3-4 weeks at a time.

    Would you recommend Knight?

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Well, Knight has terminals in, among other cities, Joliet Il, Lakeland FL, and Columbus OH. So, seeing your kids on your off time should be relatively easy.

    You WILL have quite a few short runs, but they do have a sliding scale that kind of makes up for that, and it IS possible to get "xtra pay" for some of the garbage runs IF you ask nicely, ;).

    It's a big corporation, so you do have to keep track of what is owed you, and what is payed to you, but that is a function of it being such a large outfit, not any "evil designs" in policy.

    They are a far better company than the one I learned to drive with, back in the late '80's.

    In the end, most trucking companies have their good points, and their bad points, six of one, and a half dozen of the other. You could do worse.

    Personally I haven't had any bad experience with Knight. They keep me rolling so I'm not complaining.

    I enjoyed my time with Knight. Just don't have ANY kind of accident, incident, citation PERIOD within 6 months or you WILL be CANNED!... lol Ask how I know... I found it to be a good company overall. I was upset about being termed at first, but now I have been with Carroll Fulmer for a short while, I like this company even more. No hard feelings.
