    I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can work anywhere in the country. They have locations and driving jobs that can satisfy almost anyone.

    Cons

    Very hard to get promoted up from a driver to an office position even though they talk about doing this. Very business driven and not driver driven.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on creating a cohesive team with your management and drivers. This will lower turnover and strengthen customer company relationships.

    I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of emphasis on safety, most personnel are friendly and accessible.

    Cons

    Very low pay, poor communication, lots of downtime. Management is accessible, but do not follow through on their promises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a 24-hour industry...yet anytime before 9am or after 4pm, fleet managers and other office personnel are completely unavailable, not to mention on weekends and holidays. Understandably, people need days off; But you expect so many hours out of drivers that I don't think it would hurt you to put in a few more yourself. Additionally, your night and weekend dispatchers and managers are completely clueless and inept.
    It is very frustrating when I approach management with a problem, it is acknowledged, and I'm told it will be fixed...Then we go right back to the same problem, as if the entire conversation was forgotten immediately.
    Pay desperately needs to be raised, as this is easily the lowest-paying company I've ever worked for; Your policies on detention pay and standby pay need to be improved, as well.

    Pros

    Experience with fast paced team setting. Learn to network within large companies. Some flexibility with work hours. They are a few good people to learn from.

    Cons

    Managers to young and lack experience. Don't know how to handle most situations. Makes the job hard to take seriously if your managers do not care. Don't set any long term goals. Upper management has little involvement with small offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to be a better selection process for field management. Lack of connection to corporate office in field branches.

    Friendly staff. Everyone except my current manager was nice to work with.
