Driver Interview

Driver
Chester, VA

I applied online - interviewed at Heartland Express in July 2010.

Interview Details – I will be doing a great service to drivers by not saying. Everything goes extremely smoothly during the hiring/training presentation process. An "Expert Driver" will serve as a your guest, which means he will be with you for about two weeks, to make sure you really know how to drive. Keep in mind that this "guest" will be getting paid about 60% ? of your salary. You will be paid about 40%? I don't know if this has changed since I started working for them, back in l2010.

Interview Question – Each and every time a driver is potentially being assigned to a load, the question is: "Can you deliver by this date"? If you say no, this driver will become persona non grata to the operations dept. Such new status will become evident to you, once you realize that immediately after turning down a load, you will be sitting idle for days at a time. If you contact them to ask about your status, they'll tell there is nothing available.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation!!! Take it or leave it!!! Worked for co. for 2.5 years, hopping to move on, after three years.

Dispatcher Interview

Dispatcher
Atlanta, GA

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Heartland Express in October 2011.

Interview Details – Sat down with and talked informally with manager and asst manager. One interview / conversation, one hour. Main question was, "Why do u want this job?" Nice people, straight forward, honest, responsible, hard workers - representative of company. Ultimately, I didn't want the job - I simply wanted a change from my current job - the interview revealed that, and a day later I was happy with the whole thing.

Interview Question – This job is high stress, frustrating, pressure cooker, decent pay...why would you want to do it?   Answer Question
