Fellow truckers, Haven't posted much, been pounding my brain with knowledge last few weeks for test today. Was nervous at first, but the flow just started for pre trip, nailed maneuvers, no hit cones or encroachments. Had a few moments of 4 wheelers being you know what, but outta our class of 22 and testing all week, I'm only number 3 for 1st time go, and 4th overall getting it. I appreciate everything on this forum and credit it all to the information found here. So, tomorrow morning I get to take a trip to the DMV and get that squared away. Happy happy happy. Looking forward to my start with Knight! So any Knight drivers here, I'd like your opinions on Knight as a whole. I know no place is perfect and pay isnt a million dollars a year, but I have talked with the terminal manager out here for Knight and he's a stand up guy, and I like how he conducts business so I feel at a minimum this will be a great start.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

DMV:

Department of Motor Vehicles, Bureau of Motor Vehicles

The state agency that handles everything related to your driver's licences, including testing, issuance, transfers, and revocation.

I still remember that feeling. It really feels great getting that testing behind you.

Now reality sets in. It's time to get to work.

Knight is a great choice. Just remember that getting yourself established at this isn't easy. There's so much to learn. Hang in there and you'll do fine. Avoid the whiners and complainers at the terminals. Stay in touch here and we will help you any way we can.

Which Knight terminal are you going to?
