    joseph, I think that's the longest post I've ever seen from you. No, I KNOW that's the longest post I've ever seen from you!! We disagree on scumbag drivers. And that's okay. We pretty much AGREE about companies. You're a lot more intense about HTLD/GTI (in particular) than I am. That's okay, too. You're you and I'm me. To me, Heartland is like that song, "Now you're just somebody that I used to know... "



    //Now I think this is funny: wrote this last night and TTR automagically held it back for a mod to review. It FINALLY popped this morning, maybe no mods about on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning!

    Might. Or, 100 long term, 500 who cycle through every 2 months, and 2400 who leave between 5 months and 12 months. More likely.

    Running the math (for 100% turnover) is a little complex.

    Any math majors around here? (Who started and completed, not who just 'visited' the math department on their way through... Ah-hemmm!)

    Heres what I see. I am new to trucking retired Boat Captain, no family always wanted to do trucking. Went to MTI in Richfield WI finished did my 15000 miles yes 7 week with a good trainer and have been on my own 7 months no accident no problems I work for Millis Transfer I may move to the Denver area in September so I started calling companies...Hartland was one have seen there trucks while fueling and talked to a few guys all seemed happy. So I called one day the guy on the phone was like pulling teeth very little info didnt make me feel wanted or even interested in getting me to come over...The rig I drive is a 2014 T680 loaded inverter, heater, refridge if hartland really wanted to keep drivers or even get them you need this stuff...I actually called back and talked to a female the next day that was just about as horrid.....

    There are pictures of happy Jews at the camps too. Just saying. Heartland is called Heartless for a reason. That is such a scumbag operation they should be embarrassed but are blissfully ignorant to how they treat people. The first thing I thought of when I saw that message on the Qualcomm about heartland buying GTI www to get out of there.

    HTLD hasn't filed it's year-end report yet; a quarterly (10-Q) must be filed within 60 days, but at the end of year (12-31-2014) the filer has 75 days to file its very-detailed annual report (10-K) and it supersedes the 10-Q.

    I had expected the 10-Q sometime today. Didn't happen.

    Instead, 10-K should be here by March 15 or before...

    Now we can find out how much money they managed to cheat and steal from there drivers last year.
    I am certain a careful and through audit of Heartland Express would reveal that the lions share of
    those profits would closely tally with the amount they cheated there drivers out of.

    THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO STOP SOMEONE SHOOTING AT YOU IS TO SHOOT BACK.

    I wont lie to you, I used to drive for Heartland Express in the recent past so you can take what I say with a grain of salt.
    This company is all about making a profit for the owners. When you complain about something they will listen too you
    and pat you on the back and tell you things will improve-it wont. Sure you can make a living driving for them but you
    might as well forget your personal life, and your health. if you want to spend the rest of your career driving for this
    company, good luck to you.

    a clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.
