    Pros

    jb hunt seems to care about their drivers. a large variety of benefit packages to meet most needs. they are diversifying into different areas of trucking ie. intermodal, dedicated, regional. the equipment is new and well-maintained. a strong emphasis is placed on compliance and safety.

    Cons

    trucking is trucking, long days, ups and downs in freight, dispatchers who do not know trucking and so on and so forth. jb seems to become more corporate the higher you go up the chain of command. generic answers to non-generic issues seems to be the norm once an issue leaves the region and is contemplated at headquarters

    Advice to Management

    keep on being on the cutting edge of the industry. a well-compensated driver is a safe driver. take driver feedback to heart, we are the front line of the company and sometimes foresee problems before they occur. fight the unions to the end. we all pay enough already for taxes and benefits without having to pay union fat cats as well

    Pros

    I worked in the offices at a dedicated contract services account as an Operations Supervisor, and was the only JBH employee on-site. I was very satisfied with the flexibility given to me in my position, as well as the compensation and benefits. My manager(s) were all very professional and courteous.

    Cons

    I never really had a true downside, but I was on midnight shift. This sometimes complicated how and when to contact someone for assistance in the event of a PC issue or otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice to offer. JB Hunt was a fantastic company to work for, and I would gladly work for them again in the future.

    Pros

    Excellent Opportunity for those that are motivated Relaxed atmosphere for most departments Excellent Benefits Right off the highway, easy to get to

    Cons

    Long Hours for salaried people Occassional Overtime occurs for some people Non competitive rates in the area Not located in a major city

    Advice to Management

    I think you are starting to approach the issues to correct them. You give your employees/managers a lot of latitude, however, I think a large portion of the marketing group needs additional training.

    Pros

    Very good system, when broken down they move very fast. Over all, a very good software system is running the company and it shows. Very polite people on the phone.

    Cons

    The norm, break down and mean people at shipping and receiving. Once and a while you get a light load.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on truckin

    Pros

    JB Hunt is an aggressively growing company that affords competent people the chance for quick advancement. The executive management team has set their sights high and continue to deliver. JB Hunt promotes from within and appears to take care of the people who stick with them.

    Cons

    The company is internally segmented into four divisions that sometimes seem to clash and the pay structure doesn't provide incentive for operations to work together.

    Advice to Management

    Cross train management in different divisions to bring the organization together as a whole operationally.

    Pros

    The company takes care of their employees as long as the employees do their job. There's never a point with the company where you can't move up anymore until you become the CEO. They always want the employees to blossom into their fullest potential. I'm proud to work for JB Hunt.

    Cons

    Haven't experienced any with the company yet.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great motivating skills and providing safety training to continue to be the best.

    Pros

    Management 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

    Cons

    Overall, 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.
