    While the Columbus yard is awesome at getting shop work done, they will never find me a load to PHX without harassment.

    Knight does have some good points. When I didn't have my car, they drove up to my house in Phoenix to pick me up and issue me a truck after I took a week off. That was nice.

    Yeah, they once let me use the company Explorer when my truck had to stay at the yard over the weekend. It's all about the individuals that you deal with-some are decent human beings, some are still learning.

    But then, in full disclosure, I am not always the easiest person to work with, and I have made mistakes at work (last I remember was in 1990, I believe. ;) )

    Never had work done at Columbus, only load they kept wanting to give me was going to PA, get to PA and they would give me a load back to Ohio. I rinsed and repeated several times.

    yeah that same thing happened to me. Milwaukee... ohio, back and forth back and forth and I was desperately needing home time. Took me two extra weeks to get away from the great lakes.

    Marten. Taking this job to Pittsburgh with me next month. Knight isn't keeping me rolling enough and I wasted three days in the shop to have my tractor fixed, only to find out they didn't bother to actually do any repairs. I had to come home to PHX to put it in the shop again.

    They also owe me for some reimbursements and for a couple of loads. They said they paid me, but I check my bank account daily and I check payroll and neither one reflect my payment.

    I'm just cutting my losses and getting away from Knight. If I keep working for them, I'm saying that it's okay to not pay me at all for my time.
