    The way Heartland is buying companies left and right, they should be called Skittles Express with all those different colors now

    I worked at May for 6 mo's, my shortest tenure at a OTR before that was 2yrs. If you like driving shorthaul & I mean 3 loads just to get from Auburn Wa to Bend Or then sign up. Did 18 loads 1 month just to get 10k miles. Thats 555 miles per load & it would have been worse if I would of been on E-logs then.
    i even had 1 of their 5 remaining century's that were not governed. 6mos & I got out of the NW "tour" 4x's
    1 trip to SLC 1 to LA 1 to PHX and 1 to Denver. Heartland would not do much to hurt their rep. They are already worthless IMO, so why not add heartless?
