    Hi @pattyj, great to meet you. I'm Rob, and I manage our digital responsiveness efforts for the company. Like TTR, the web has an abundance of spaces where folks can ask questions of us and share their feedback. My role is to be open and immediate in getting back to folks that want to know more about how we operate.

    We currently have a waiting list of new drivers to get trained, but an experienced driver that doesn't require training would be considered for orientation right away (and not have to go on with a trainer).

    To answer your question: we will always aim to have more trucks than drivers. Our volume of trucks closely matches our volume of drivers, but we have trucks to waiting to be filled. A comparable approach would be a retail company not allowing manufacturing or supply chain management get in the way of sales. Does that make sense?

    Thanks for sharing. I wouldn't be able to comment on your personal situation in this public forum. Maybe you could privately message us and we can look into it?

    I've read some of your responses. It's obvious that you're not just Rob @ Heartland, 2nd door down on left from the lobby.

    What you are is either a moral booster like many companies use or an employee of one of those 'fix your online reputation'. Either way, you're getting paid for your time here, on Twitter, on Facebook, etc etc.

    How long have you been getting paid by Heartland?

    Bad trucking companies are a breeding ground for negativity. Take care of your drivers and your reputation will repair itself. A decent weekly pay guarantee will fix it.

    I want to appologize to our members. We thought we had made it clear to Heartland what he was allowed and not allowed to do here. I have removed his privledges to our forum. Now on to "commercial free" discussions.

    This also includes keeping all promises, not breaking or bending them.
