    Well, getting back into trucking after a year break. Have almost 2 years otr and for whatever reason, heartland was the only company i could find to take me. No worries. spoke to ryan and was told id be getting .46cpm trucks are 10 or 13 speeds and have 1500 watt inverters. We shall see whats what. Heading to dallas hopefully for a refresher tomorrow. If not then monday. wish me luck.

    123456 not sure if thats sarcasm or well wishing. I know they arent the best. I only plan on being with them long enough to get on john christner. So if you could give me your experience with them id appreciate it. Thank you :)

    Heartland isn't the greatest company, I hear of a lot of guys not getting miles, but they aren't the worst either. Good luck to you
     
    arata954 Thanks this.

    Well i started with central refrigerated back in 2013. Left when swift took them over. So if anyone is better than swift, werener, wester express, etc. Then ill be fine.

    Well since youre only staying long enough to get some more time behind the wheel so you get go somewhere better, I say just enjoy it but HeartLess Express is crap. I work for Gordon and Heartless has made things worse and Gordon has drivers running out the door faster than they are coming in. So have fun but don't stay long.
    And as far as miles they have been going down quite a bit and they have been making drivers sit for days at a time.
    So good luck.

    Actually went to mesilla valley transportation 10-16-15 and was treated extreamly well. Started at .37cpm im going to be quitting due to the va finding me 100% disabled, but i enjoyed my time with mvt. Any heartless drivers should check them out
     
    SouthernBelle21 and DustyRoad Thank this.
