    Pros

    Great company if you like no touch freight. Lots of drop and hooks, nice up to date trucks that get serviced regularly. Dispatch works hard to get you home when you really need it.

    Cons

    Trucks are slow and speed is governed down so sometimes on the open interstate it's boring watching everyone and anybody pass you up. Kind of redundant when the speed limit is 65 or 70 and you have 400 miles left to drive.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more drivers to convert over to non trucking jobs. They try to keep you driving because it's easier to hire another dispatcher than it is to find another good driver, but at some point every driver burns out. I have found it quite difficult to get a dispatch position after being here for 7 years and having a perfect driving record.

    Pros

    I have 6+ continuous years OTR experience with over 700,000 solo miles logged. I have been here at JBH for almost 3 months now. MOST difficult company to get hired by. Feels like Quantico, VA all over again. JBH has extreme expectations, but the training and level of support are extraordinary too. They have a good attitude so far. Been shorted on a few checks already (direct deposit) but when you catch it, they make good on it. There is some decent equipment here but do a THOROUGH pre-trip inspection. Safety will trump a service failure, but that will go on your performance record. Catch something BEFORE you start running, to save yourself from that hit on your record. 2 consecutive days off as promised on this account.

    Cons

    14, 000 tractors and drivers make for a cluster@uck! Miss communication galore. One hand doesn't know what the other is doing within the company at all levels. Like a big void - a big black hole. What was planned as you finished your day for tomorrow is GUARANTEED to be different by the time you show up in the morning. Every day you must "wing it" as a driver. Do not take for granted that items like a pre-pass, or even the truck registration or insurance card is even on the tractor you are assigned. I found out the hard way - about those REQUIRED items missing. Especially as you will slip seat into a new tractor often. 14 hour days are the norm and… are expected! HARD work on those DCS accounts. No need to join the gym, the workout comes as part of your employment here LOL! If want to loose 20 pounds very quickly, join JBH Dedicated Contractor Services.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some of your BILLIONS on organization, effective communication, equipment maintenance, and driver retention. Ever wonder why your turnover rate is so high?
