    I have worked for Knight for over 7 years, and the owner has yet to invite me to his home for Thanksgiving Dinner. I guess that pretty much tells you how much they "care" about their drivers!

    :eek:

    With several thousand employees, maybe he just hasn't figured out a seating arrangement yet.:rolleyes:

    Gosh almighty....
    Can you believe that anyone might actually be so bold as to expect to be paid a fair wage for their time, whether it be driving or just watching videos?
    Ya know, come to think of it, from now on, I'm just gonna start paying whatever I feel that it's worth for my car insurance. How dare Allstate force me to pay such an exorbitant amount? All those lazy underwriters charging me all that dough for their precious time? No more!
     
    Dna Mach Thanks this.

    It's not so scary that the average person is so stupid.
    What really is terrifying is that half of the population is even stupider than that.

    Do people actually think a company shouldn't pay for orientation? Hmmmm.

    you make more in your first year as a trucker than a pilot does in their first year

    Heres the deal.....you are not hired until you are going down the road in a truck....you should be paying them because they are doing you a huge favor by giving you consideration for a job.
