Worst company EVER!! They pay is terrible! They never pay on time. You're a number and they have no respect or care about their drivers! So glad my husband is done working for this crappy company.

Knight Transp. needs to hire more qualified drivers.

the company I work for gets deliveries from knight and the experience is always frustrating , none of the drivers we get can back up a truck it takes them multiply tries and it looks as though they have never done it before. We had one recently that literally took he/she an hr to finally get backed in . It cost's us time and money waiting for them to figure it out. And they end up asking us what do they need to do, (we are not the truck drivers you are suppose to be the professional ). I feel like all they know how to do is driver forward and nothing else, I am not saying that their are no good drivers at this company I just have yet to see one and wish that we would get one that knows how to do more then drive in a straight line . I think the hiring process needs to be a little more thorough.

Yes you are right.! My trainer showed me how to backup like a professional HAHAHAHA I ask the other driver to help her because over a one hour she was not able to back up with 100F outside! Great trainer Becky

I worked for Knight for over 9 years and you have to understand, Knight hires drivers straight out of driving school and then let them train a new driver after 6 months of driving themselves. And now they've become partners with Swift, who have some of the worst drivers when it comes to backing, GOD HELP US!!!!!

You hired a driver that has an extensive felony background? Thats the best you can get ? He's a 29 yr meth addict and alcoholic. You might want to do better background checks. He's also been seen by several people with at least 2 riders in the cab . Seriously that's your ok policies.?

Only one star because you hire meth addicts an alcoholics with brain damage. Because you don't care about the other people on the highways with these idiots

This company isn't a bad and isn't a best either. the bad part is that they don't have a good trainers special female and be careful about one Becky Borg. I know she was so bad to many poor people who want to work for this company. And I know that the owner doesn't know anything about what is going on with some cases. Everything is covered. I'm surprised that this company is taking responsibility and risk to keep this person Becky Borg. Before I got hired the company checked me very well if I don't have a bad credit history. I have been told that they don't hire people from the streets. My trainer has no Home. She is leaving in the truck. She is so sweet to the driver manager because she has no choice, she has no place to go. Least week was almost 100F outside and almost 150F in a truck. She keeps the air conditioner off to get a extra bonus for not using too much full. This is unsafe for a trainees and also her. She was feeling sleepy when I was driving a first day. She didn't shower almost a week and not doing laundry at all. Lots of fragrance in a cabin.She belonged to Indiana terminal. So many trainees did not makes Thanks to her and she was happy with this. I do believe she should be fired immediately least week when some trainer driver tried help me calling to safety manager. I said no because I wanted finish. Today I was finally happy to be done with her and if she will be again able to work as a trainer that's not safe for a company. I was watching her driving and she makes lots of mistakes with keeping a truck straight between lines poorly checked the mirrors , not doing pre trip inspection right. One day she lost the engine oil cover because q didn't check very well and I found out that. She doesn't even know very well the parts of the engine compartment inside. She is very great liar and she knows how to play liar. She puts this company at risk. I believe that a some day she is going to get what she deserves. She is only a few months a trainer and I'm surprised that this company is hired people like her . For all future trainees don't ever go with Becky Borg.

I'm very disappointed about what happened to me. Don't ever go with Becky Borg and her manager! He is young and she really knows how to play with a young people. BE AWARE!!!!

This is my second time working here at knight. I left in 2007 to go back to being a bmw technician so I can see my kid more. I didn't have any issues while working here. I've always had the work ethic and views that if I did my job and gave 200 percent all the time I'd have no issues getting the miles. And it worked well for me. I worked in the denver division and have found that I've always thrived under the management in denver. Creighton Zirkle was an amazing dispatcher and division manager and he will be truly missed. And joe Vitiritto was just as amazing. And now we have Dustin Ericson. When I decided to come back to trucking last year there wasn't a list of companies I looked at. I just walked into knight denver and updated my profile and hopped into the current orientation class and was driving within a week. In a perfect world , all the divisions would work as well as the denver division. But it's not perfect. The only thing that bothers me here is that we are always chasing this fuel bonus and it is achievable, but why pay a driver up to 6k a year when with the state and federal rebate programs available and bulk purchasing discounts you could outfit the trucks with apu's? I'd rather have creature comfort and the ability to cook my own meals and be more self sufficient and cool in the summer months. I'd give up the bonus for that. It's truly brutal trying to save money by not idling and sweating to death in the sleeper. If I idle I lose a few mph by over idling and it will affect my mpg as well. So far it's my only complaint as a company driver. Again this was my first and only choice to come back to and I appreciate all you do for us.

Companies like USAA or Verizon have no problem helping out their customers/guest/members... Knight Transportations Pay Roll Department in Phoenix AZ seems like they don't care that ppl are going weeks without pay... I am a trainee, i completed class and submitted my paperwork 2 weeks ago and still havent received my orientation money. I can understand that ppl make mistakes.. But what i dont understand is how the department that made mistake doesnt try to correct their mistake with urgency! They are going to want there money when its time for us to pay.. They are going to want their money when its time to pay their bills and feed their family.. They are going to want us to promtly make successfull deliveries to different locations... Why can't they understand that ppl "NEED" their money! STOP PASSING ME FROM PERSONAL TO PERSONAL! From reading the comments, it looks like i may have this problem in the future.

Very poor claims department. After a Knight Transportation driver backed into our truck a month ago I have been told 5 times that our check was in the mail. Still nothing.

Would steer everyone away from this scam company. Told me it was a sliding pay scale between .38 and .44 depending on the mileage of the trip. Was screwed out of 322.00 the first week out, and then 90.24 for the other two runs finished. After looking at the pay stub I saw they were paying me 1980s wages. A total insult. _uck Knight!!!!

Sir,

As a driver for your company I am sadly upset. Y'all did good when my mom died and got me home. But trying to get home for a doctors appointment is like pulling teeth. Yes been having medical issues (female problems) trying to get that fixed But apparently the health of your drivers is not important to the company.

If you could contact me I would appreciate it Kris (hidden)

So, I would like to know how Knight Transportation is a good company? I have been driving for Knight for a few months now, and after 3 months i went into their owner operator division. Ever since I jumped over to owner operator my miles plummeted, my driver manager was complete trash. Here is the scary part that will scare away potential drivers. For 3 weeks now I have been driving for free, as Knight has been taking my paycheck because of "fees". Literally for 3 weeks now i have not received a deposit as it all has gone to these damn fees. That hasn't been the first time either, I had about 2 good weeks then back to this crap about not getting a check. a fee for $200 something for pets, when i do NOT have any pets!!! I have asked for help and complained, but for some reason the Driver Manager and payroll think that I do not have bills to pay and mouths to feed, and that i signed up to be a volunteer. Mr. Kevin Knight, as successful as your company has been throughout the years, I know this is not how you would want your company to be ran because it would have never made it this far. West Texas is all you have to know for now.

Rick, I was the driver for the company for several months and then I went to the owner operator division they'd gladly take all my escrow money out and I have not worked for the company or received a paycheck since November and they are still holding my escrow money they tell me it's going to be the end of January or February before I even get anything back you guys got your money on time when I relocated down to Tennessee my driver manager cut my miles to less than 500 miles a week my fuel card hardly ever work I had to sit and wait and then they get mad at me cuz my loads are late they would give me late loads after that which I got reprimanded for I also have turn my truck in over a month ago and I called and now they're telling me that I still have to wait another one or two months to even get my money out of my escrow I have found out from several places that I do have a case and I really would hate to go to that route because you guys will end up paying more I just want this settled I want my escrow money back and I want it now just like you guys wanted your money now I have bills to pay also I haven't received a paycheck since November 12th they were supposed to call me and set up payment arrangements on the fuel and they never did that my entire checks if you look at my payroll I haven't had any checks since November my name is Rick my phone number (hidden)

Dear Safety, I use to drive truck first off. I'm coming down Donner Summit almost being shoved off the road by one of your drivers. He needs to learn a out safety. We were going 78 mls an hr. He cut off other cars also. This kind of beha ior is not OK or Safe. Driver P6006 plz speak to your driver about agressive driving with an 80 thsnd pound vehicle. Thank you a fellow driver.

"Good job man and to the cops the who ran them over u should reverse and got the other cop" this said by your employee. ANGEL ALVAREZ. About the three Phx cops ran over. I'm so glad your company employs people with so much hate and knowledge to spell.

Knight needs to listen to their drivers. They are too worried about money to care about the well being of their employees. There should be some kind of feedback that drivers can give to help benefit the company and themselves. Most of these drivers have years of experience and can give good insight. Communication is preached at orientation, but......drivers can never get any communication back from office personnel. Promises are broken, not enough miles, trucks and trailers in need of repair, DM's that will actually do something for their employees. You will be losing good drivers.
