    I have been working at Heartland Express full-time

    Pros

    They don't micromanage much. As long as you're getting the job done, they leave you alone. Equipment is well maintained

    Cons

    A little chintzy with home time, and not all that good at getting you home on requested date. Short you on a few miles here and there.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Heartland Express (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    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.
