Knight Driving Careers
Whether you’re an experienced driver or in training, we provide
resources and personal help to set you up for a successful career.
Our driver turnover is much lower than industry standards because of our culture of respect, trust and open communication. We provide our Driving Associates the strength, capacity and power of a large corporation, with the personal connection and convenience of a hometown carrier.
