Benefits of Driving with Knight
Class A CDL students from our Indianapolis location have the opportunity to receive sponsored training, tuition reimbursement, and a career with Knight Transportation following graduation. Knight is one of the nation’s largest carriers with over 4,000 trucks on the road and has great entry-level driving opportunities for our grads.
One of the biggest draws for drivers to work with Knight is their amazing work culture and how they make teamwork a priority for their employees. Something they like to call “Knight Culture”, means being treated like family, and making work feel like it’s your home. Knight is proud to have an employee turnover rate that is less than the industry average.
Knight also has a great driver reward program for every milestone you hit. Milestone rewards begin at 100,000 miles and continue for every additional 100,000 you would travel as a truck driver. Rewards can include apparel, pins, magnets, and more! When a driver hits one million miles, they receive a brand new, customized truck, a cash bonus, and even a nameplate at Knight’s headquarters!
Knight Truck Driver Pay
Drivers are offered a competitive pay package when compared to other carriers in the trucking industry. Knight Transportation pays its drivers using the TRU Pay method, which stands for Transparent Reliable Understandable Pay. TRU Pay is a newer form of pay scale that is based on individual progress. Through the driver portal, drivers can track their productivity and see how close they are to a pay increase. Knight also gives their eligible drivers bonuses on a monthly scale instead of quarterly.
Modern Equipment And Facilities
Knight’s trucks have an average truck age of less than 2 years on the road, which means drivers are consistently using new, fuel-efficient trucks. The make and model of the trucks depend on which type of driving job you choose (dry van, refrigerated, port & rail, or dedicated).
Knight’s facilities are some of the most modern and up-to-date when it comes to amenities. Knight Transportation has 25 facilities around the U.S. for drivers to use when needed. Each facility has driver shower rooms, laundry machines, lounges, and some even have exercise rooms for employees to use. Some facilities also include maintenance shops for drivers to use if needed.
