Hello Drivers. Just wanted to share the good news. Received a call from the recruiter today and he told me I was officially hired! I went to Knights orientation on Mon 11/1/21 for 3 days. Didn't want to post as I wasn't sure if I would get hired by them. The process was very simple, the only hiccup was my previous employment history. I was self employed so they needed a lot of paperwork from me to verify I was working the past 12 months. Took them 2 days to get back to me and honestly I was getting worried. It all came back fine and now I'm waiting for a call from the terminal manager for more information.

I'm very excited to start this new journey in life and hope it all goes well. If anyone has advice to give a rookie I'm all ears. If there are other posts that you think I should read, please send them my way. I am thankful for the advice I received so far and would greatly appreciate more. Especially for Flatbed.

Thanks for reading. Stay safe out there!

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.
