    Are you kidding me? When was the last time you bought a driver a burger and a coke? Greedy pig.

    I'm thinking the .15 cents crap comes from the per-diem mess.

    Trust me....nobody hates this company more than me. In 20 years of driving, Knight is only one of two "large" companies I ever drove for.

    That said; I drove out of the Eagan, MN. terminal. They did not have a garage (basically a dispatch office, and small yard)...so when it was time for services and/or repairs, they would have me take care of it at a larger terminal with a garage (usually Indianapolis or Salt Lake City). Any time they required my truck to remain at the terminal over night, they had no problem giving me a taxi and hotel (or someone drove me in a company car to a hotel)---this happened twice, both times at Salt Lake City.....so maybe it is certain terminals.

    Don't know anything about 'Drivers Lounge' being locked up over night, because I never hung around the terminals.

    In my career; I can't think of a company that sucks worse than Knight....J.B. Hunt is tied with them.

    Experienced drivers always have a choice....do yourself a favor, and do NOT choose Knight.

    I drove for the refer division and the terminals were not closed, but this was in the north central region and the east coast. The company really treated me with professionalism. When I had an issue they were quick to help me through it.
    I have only good things to say about the team in the refer division from Ohio.
    In my opinion they are the best.
    They are second to none. So if your having a problem you can transfere to the refer division in columbus Ohio. They will take good care of you.
    Thanks

    98% lies folks. Min pay is .33cpm. Driver lounge open 24/7. If your broke down somewhere, get ready to kick back in a nice hotel somewhere with cable tv. Free. They let me choose all the times. Sexual harassment? ? On your son's wife? First of all, if she's that hot she probably wouldn't be driving some oily truck. I just made my point. Knight is not the greatest, but they do pamper drivers like heck. Pay is $600 weekly (average)
     
    Tallman67122 and Leftnut Thank this.

    Please note, the $.44 cpm is for those super short runs that you pick up today and deliver tomorrow. Good luck living on the $50 bucks a day that will make you.

    For someone who is not a trucker anymore you sure do miss trucking and you miss Knight most of all.
