ED Magedson – Founder
KNIGHT TRANSPORTATIONCarlisle, Pennsylvania United States of America
I can only speak for myself about this company.I was hired in August of 2009.Now,according to them I was hired through the Syracuse,Ny terminal.Only to find out that all the assignments come from Carlisle,Pa terminal,including maintenance.Fine with me,but why is there a safety guy,and driver manager sitting in a terminal in Syracuse,NY with no authority?Interesting.Now the trucks.The trucks are poorly maintained.The shop in Carlisle does what it needs to do to keep the trucks on the road.This is fine,but it also means poor maintenance.Any repairs that are written up are looked over.No problem,get the trucks serviced at T/A's and Petro's.Turn that shop in Carlisle into storage for oil,antifreeze,new driver room even a bunk house for drivers,fire the mechanics and give the drivers a raise.I don't trash talk people,this is purely a professional opinion.Utilize what you have for efficiency.Knight Transportation has alot of things they advertise,but there is little to no value to it in reality.This is even true with alot of their customers as I talk to them,and is the main reason why driver moral is so low.This is a shame,this company does have to potential to be a solid place,and they have lots of drivers who want to see it work,and work hard for them,so fix the problems we all know exist and all the drivers will stay,the doors will stay open,everybody happy.My opinion is all drivers at all companies should stay where they are.If we all stay instead of quit,there won't be any openings for the new drivers,and the revenue of these companies would be effected,and they would have to work with who they have.Then all the money for recruiting would go to driver wages.The drivers would have the upper hand once again.As long as we quit every 3 months,the company see no reason to change.It would be tough in the beginning,but rest assured it would work,at least I believe so.Run legal,take back overweight loads,if they are not getting,come down with a sudden cold in the truck and only driver 80 miles a day.I talk to other drivers who work at other terminals,some issues are company wide,some are not.Then its the terminal manager.They can act as big as they can,but when the revenue of the place they are in charge of is effected,they have to answer to it,not us.This is my opinion of Knight,I will stay as long as I can afford to,or get help from other drivers in fixing this.Drive safe.God Bless.
