here is how messed up knight is ... get this ....

1 - there safety manager gary boring gets fired fall of 2009 for having unadvanced sexual relations with multiple drivers

2- his successor, doug filson , takes over safety and is fired for unprofessional conduct with a female driver

3- they had a terminal manager marat who went on vacation to russia and came back to be demoted and since then, jose the one who took over, seems to be loosing more drivers and doesnt seem to care ... the terminal was ran better by marat when he was in charge but they dont seem to care .. its all about the almioghty dollar

4- there is a woman driver out of the carlisle, pa terminal that if you dont do what she says and if you are not on her good side, she will have you fired for b.s. reasons like sexual harasment and etc .. knight in phoenix dont seem to do anything about it cause they are afraid of her bring up some lawsuit to them ... she has had a few drivers fired and a few have quit and the manager jose knows this and doesnt care ... i guess doug didnt either cause she was the reason he was fired ...

they will run you illeagal until everyone has the electronic logs cause thats how they are.. they will have you run sams club loads that are over weight and illegal cause thats how they are .. they will have you run hazmat loads when you dont have a hazmat license ...

they will dispatch you to run them loads when the weigh strations are closed but still they know whats going on ... they dont care ..

kevin knight needs to stop looking at his bank book and start looking at the men and women who make that bank book look good ...

i know there are a few people out there who will defend knight and that is ok .. you do that, but when they finally screw you over, you too will be in others shoes...

they had me loose everything twice and they were to garnish my child support and since you dont get a paycheck stub from knight UNLESS you already have internet access in yoru truck cause they dont like it when you want to go home after 2 1/2 months on the road, you dont know if you had it taken out or not until you get home and you get a letter in the mail 7 weeks before hand saying if you dont show up for court you will have a warrant for yoru arrest... that is only a few things that i have experienced and seen when i was with knight.. i was with them for a year .. thats a year that i cant get back ... but if anyone who reads this still wnats to go to knight, just please keep an eye out for the ones on the office ...

i am not saying dont go, i am saying watch out for yourself, cause you are the only one there who cares if you stay or leave ... as fast as you will leave they will have you releaced within the next week ...

#1 UPDATE Employee

Mr. Paknightdriver

AUTHOR: Driveshaft - (U.S.A.)

Quit spreading garbage. You were discharged because you were unhealthy and unsafe to be on the highway. Put your anger and pride aside and man up. Admit you made a mistake. If you don't you will never be any better than the others you speak bad of.

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Are you ever right

AUTHOR: Paknightdriver - (U.S.A.)

Wow!  What can I say.....You hit the nail on the head!  I should know....because I was the safety director prior to Gar Boring taking over. 

Unfortunately, I had the experience of coming back as a driver recently.  I can honestly say that I only lasted a little over a month before resigning. 

Knight is now going to electronic logs!  What a joke.  Christina and Denny in Carlisle is a poor excuse for orientation training.

I went through the "express" orientation because I used to teach the class.  Trust me Denny and Christina have no idea what the hell they are doing.

We sat through the haz-mat portion of the orientation and Denny had no clue what the answers were to the questions were. He even had to go out of the room to try to get the right answers.  This is absolutely ridicuolus!!!!!  What a freakin joke!

Let me tell you this....Knight had an OPEN HOUSE the last 2 weekends trying to get new drivers to sign on.  Guess what???? Not even 1 potential applicant even showed up.  This ought to tell you something of what is going on at Knight!

Knight is losing drivers at a record pace and they are in panic mode.  They will take anyone that can hold a steering wheel right now.  i.e. There was a 72 year old driver applying last week that couldn't pass the required lift test to be an employee for Knight and they skirted the regulations and got him passed even though he didn't meet the standards. 

Anyone that previously applied at Knight that was refused employment because of this lift test should go to a lawyer at once and file charges for discrimination!!!!

Knight has become a joke in the industry and will remain a joke until they realize what the hell they are doing.

Jose is a good guy, but he is just trying to fill trucks.  I feel sorry for him as he is going down in a sinking ship.
