Knight Transportation weekly hometime question

They'll work with you as much as you can. I run two weeks out and home on the weekends I have my daughter. My DM gets me home Friday evening and I generally leave out late Sunday night or early Monday morning. Getting a weekly route right off the bat won't be that easy to do but it depends what terminal you're out of.

yeh they told me they have weekly hometime for me do you know what kind of agility test they have?like lifting pulling etc...

T mobile reliable phone service to have over the road?

I had T-Mobile for 1.5 years over the road. Let me tell you this, a decent signal was hard to come by, LTE was like hitting the lottery, and 'No Signal' was a daily part of life. It was so bad, I had to wait until I got to the big city before calling anyone, or else it would be dropped calls whenever a snowflake got in the way of me and the tower.

I really wouldn't wish T-Mobile over the road to my worst enemies. Spend that money on Verizon or AT&T. Unlimited data is nice, but not when you don't ever have a signal to use it.

Yeh thats what i was thinking i have Straight talk rite now but i only get 3GB of data and bein on the road when theres nothing to do at times you have ur phone and internet it runs out fast so i need unlimited data but verizon or at&t gona charge a fortune for that but thanks for replying what service u have now?

I'm sure you are. I know I was!! It takes about ⁴ days to get the drug results back. If I remember correctly, they give you next available dates for orientation but don't book your hotel UNTIL the results come back. I'd just give them a call again tomorrow. Any recruiter can help you. GOOD LUCK!

Oh i see and oh they dont book the hotel for you like most companies????and thanks man

Did you apply on line? You can call 800-44 pride and talk to a recruiter. It depends on how long it takes to verify your work history. A few days. Then there's phone interviews. Then drug tests. I'd guess about 2 weeks max. Just all depends on your situation really.

yeh i called a recruiter but she said my app was incomplete so she sent me a email to finish it i finished it yesterday i didnt get no answer today maybe i will tomorow

1st week of Schneider training finished!

Finished up my first week today. For you guys that went thru this training I got an 8 on my final test. I've already talked to my TE for next week and he sounds like a really nice guy. He's got a 2015 cascadia evolution that's about 2 months old. And I can't wait to go trucking in that bad boy! I couldn't be happier with the choice I made by choosing them. Trainers are excellent, patient and highly personable. They want to see you be the best you can be. Any questions about Schneider feel free to ask me. Stay safe out there!

how long did your hiring process take? i already filled out an application with them how long does it take before someone contacts you and they get you ready to go to orientation?

Yeh at school they want you to downshift all the way so you can get used to shifting thats why they have you shift all the way down
