From the time a new driver reaches out to our recruiting team, we aim to have them in the very next Monday or Wednesday orientation class. Our paid orientation takes 2.5 days start to finish. From there, depending on experience, you'll be dispatched for your first load or be paired up with a driver trainer. -Rob at Heartland Express

Took me a few weeks as I waited for a spot to open for their orientation, once in orientation took three days, a drug test, a road test, and then was placed with a trainer. if coming in with no experience can be in training for 5-6 weeks. I had experience so was only 5 days.

Took one week from recruiter to orientation. Orientation is when you learn what Heart Less Express is about.
