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.
Pay and Bonuses
With options for weekly or daily pay available (in most markets), driving for Knight Transportation means you can get the money you earned, faster. There’s no delay, no service charge, and no worries about the paycheck coming through thanks to our rock-solid financials. Knight drivers also have the opportunity for quarterly bonuses based on performance. These bonuses are very achievable — just ask our Driving Associates.
Others tout their “open-door policy.” At Knight, we don’t even know what that means. With us, you are a part of the team, a part of the family. You can have face-to-face conversations with anyone in the company.
Preferred Lanes and Hometime
We offer more choices to our Driving Associates than any other carrier in America. Whatever your preference, we do our best to keep you in the region that you want while still ensuring you receive your ideal hometime.
