    Pros

    There is a multitude of opportunities, great people and if you apply yourself, you will learn and grow daily.

    Cons

    Tough to have a work/life balance and be a top performer

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the tedious activities associated with the sales position. There should be fewer steps to getting an opportunity in the door, priced and proposal and with documenting your customer interaction. The CRM should be customized to make the process self-explanatory.

    Pros

    Growing company with steady work. Good pay to qualified mechanics. Pretty good benefits except for 1. Good work hours.

    Cons

    They hire to many unqualified people just to fill openings and too many lazy employees. Health care benefits suck.

    Advice to Management

    Make health care benefits much cheaper for employees. Need to provide better training to some of the employees.

    Pros

    The pay is good even when it's slow. Easy to make $1000/week for a 5 day work week. You keep an activity sheet and you calculate your pay at the end of everyday. it averages $220/day if you're willing to put in 12 hours a day. Management is good. Definitely a friendly atmosphere. Really lenient on changing shifts or needing days off. Generally a good company to work for if you're a decent, hard worker.

    Cons

    Benefits are very expensive. They assign you a truck but you share it and sometimes they aren't done with their shift when it's time for yours so you have to walk the terminal searching for a loaner for the day (doesn't sound bad but it's annoying when you're in a hurry), you WILL start offun graveyard. Everything JB Hunt does is based off seniority so all the good shifts go to the drivers who have been there for years. I've met people that have been there for 5 years and are still on the graveyard Shift. The seniority thing also gets annoying because if you request a day off a couple weeks in advance but if someone who has been there longer than you requests the same day they won't give it to you. LONG HOURS TO MAKE GOOD MONEY. 14 hours a day is not uncommon to make $ 200.

    Advice to Management

    Petter pay packages so we don't have to burn ourselves out working 12-14 hours a day. Cheaper benefits would be nice too $160/week for a family is outrageous.

  11. Optimistic, but losing hope
