Heather was born into a trucking family. Her father was an owner-operator who trained many drivers, including her brother, uncle, and two cousins. After being around trucking her entire life, she became a driver recruiter three years ago. "My favorite part of being a recruiter is the conversations I get to have with different people from all over the United States every day,” she says. "And I love helping people find work that’s right for them.” She does that by listening carefully and making note of everything a driver is seeking in their next job.
Heather spends her time off with her husband and family, which includes a Boxer, Zena, and cat, Zorro.
Matt knows that changing jobs can be stressful. He finds that taking time to build good relationships with drivers leads to honest, in-depth conversations. What he learns from that helps him match each driver to a job that’s right for them. "When a driver thanks me for making things easy, it gives me the motivation to recruit and help more drivers,” he says. In his three years as a recruiter, Matt has gained experience seating drivers in a variety of jobs. His current passion is recruiting more over-the-road teams, so if you’re interested he’s ready to connect.
In his free time, Matt enjoys visiting family, playing vintage video games, and catching up on pro wrestling. He’s also a big fan of house cats.
Shelley understands trucking, having spent more than 20 years with Halvor Lines in operations, sales, and recruiting. In addition to recruiting new drivers, she works with existing drivers seeking new opportunities at Halvor, like changing divisions, becoming trainers, moving to semi-dedicated runs, and more. "The most fulfilling thing for me is listening to drivers describe their career vision and then finding the opportunity at Halvor that is the best fit for them,” she says.
When she isn’t at work, Shelley can be found boating, 4-wheeling, or motorcycling Wisconsin’s back roads with her husband. She also loves spending time with her extended family and her friends.
Stacy says her #1 job as a recruiter is "problem solver.” Whatever has put the driver on the path of looking for a new job – wanting more home time, more pay, a chance to own their own semi – she loves finding a job that’s a great fit for them. "I’m a listener,” says Stacy. "I’m not just trying to fill a job, I’m interested in knowing what a driver is looking for.” In her 13 years as a recruiter, Stacy has matched hundreds of drivers with jobs that fit their needs.
Outside of work, Stacy spends a lot of time with her husband, two children, and their extended families. She also loves baking and cooking, particularly when nachos are on the menu.
Sherri divides her time between managing Halvor's terminal in South Bend, IN, and recruiting drivers who are graduating from CDL programs in her region. "I love helping people into jobs with opportunities a steady income, in a high-demand industry where their employer isn't going to close or leave any time soon," she says. Sherri, who has been recruiting for six years, also likes to show drivers how they can increase their income by referring drivers to Halvor, becoming trainers, and more.
Away from the office, Sherri enjoys watching her grandchildren wrestle, play soccer and try to out-fish one another at her parents' house. She also enjoys concerts and other activities with friends she's had since high school.
With nearly 20 years of recruiting experience, Tobin knows one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to trucks and jobs. "I ask a lot of questions and do a lot of listening,” he says. "Sometimes, I match a driver with an available job. Other times, I work outside the lines, partnering with operations to create an opportunity that works for the driver and for us."
Tobin devotes most of his free time to raising his children and either watching football or waiting for the season to return.
