I worked at Heartland Express full-time (More than 10 years)
New corporate office great people to work with.
Too short sighted, not seeing the whole picture only worried about keeping shareholders happy. Long hours for day ops usually 12 or more scheduled 07:00-17:00 but never that short and if you can get done in the allotted time, management will give you a bad review. Nights have a set 12 hours and then home.
Advice to Management
Bring back the way Russ ran the company .
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Heartland Express (New York, NY) in January 2017.
I spoke with a recruiter for Heartland Express and he was simply impatient and nasty. I'm asking real and tangible questions about what the work environment will be like and the expectations. Not every trucking company is the same. Move on, not worth it.
