Great place to learn and grow

Regional Logistics Manager (Current Employee)

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

ProsTeamwork, dynamic work environment, given responsibility quickly, great exposure to a large business and ability to quickly become ingrained and attuned to large companies supply chain needs and transportation.
Constantly challenged to grow as an individual and team.

ConsWork-life balance can be a challenge - its a personal problem for me that I tend to have a hard time switching off. Easy to let work become your life as a result.
On that same vein, time off could be encouraged and given more time sooner.

Advice to Senior ManagementEnsure you avoid being penny wise and dollar foolish by allowing good people to leave because they feel their prospects are limited or that they can earn more elsewhere and work less hours. Encourage individual growth and mentoring from upper management.
Continue to emphasize to all business units how vital all the other business units are. Currently attitudes of more established units tend to be that they are more important or necessary than newer units. Great exposure and/or cross training should help limit this.

JBHunt Experience / Employee Driven

Human Resources Manager (Current Employee)
Lowell, AR

I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time for more than 8 years

ProsThey are focused on making working with JBHunt the best experience of your life. For the first time I feel like I am part of a family when I go to work each day. I feel like I am making a difference in peoples lives and that I am helping people reach levels they themselves never thought they could. Great company to work, career driven and options for everyone no matter what season of life you are in.

ConsSo fare I have found no downsides, they have accomidated my needs and my families needs the entire 9 years I have been with them. I will one day retire from JB Hunt it is the last place I intend on ever working.

Advice to Senior ManagementSome of the Managers could use some help developing their customer service, but it is a work in progress which I feel is going in the right direction. They are off to a great start at genuinely making people feel like people and helping the people who are the heart of the company be the most important asset in the company.

Challenging, but interesting and fun!

Account Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time for more than a year

ProsFast paced promotions, strong culture of individual growth, freedom of movement within the company, and very good future prospects. Pay is decent.

ConsIf you are not a person that is self-driven, a very good planner, or possibly have difficulty working with people that have strong personalities; this job will be difficult for you as a manager.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlan movements according to capacity available or try to scale integration to meet capacity development histories. Going too fast can hurt business relationships.

Great career advancement and skill development

IS Professional (Current Employee)

I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time for more than 10 years

ProsManagement is willing to take chances on you, allow you to try new things to grow and advance. Fast career progression if you are hard working and talented

ConsOverall, compensation is very competitive, but sometimes people are confused that a large portion of that is in the bonus system. The industry can be slowed down during hard economic times, though the diverse business units help to hedge against it.
