Knight Transportation / Terrible experience
I worked for knight for 2 years. In august they kept me out for 6 weeks. Right before labor day I got back to my terminal in Carlisle, PA. That was the wednesday before labor day. When asked what day I would be ready to go back out I said Tuesday after labor day. They said I could only take four days off since that was company policy.
I said but you all did not get back home when i asked to be. I was out for 6 weeks and should be off for 6 days. Thats when i was informed to clean out my truck if I wanted to be off that long. Although they had no freight to haul until tuesday, I asked for a load sunday or monday to comply with company policy hometime, they still had me clean out my truck. I had to call for someone to pick me up I lived 162 miles away.
Brian Lewis the terminal manager and my dispatcher Victor refused to work with me. Reason they had more people coming out of orientation that day than trucks. I was the second person they did that to that day alone.
