    I worked at J.B. Hunt as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great experience working as an intern with such a well-known company. Was shown real-life experience in a corporate environment and was depended on much more than just a regular intern.

    Cons

    Time commitment was a lot with also being a full-time student. Some unprofessional was shown although most of it was cleared up.

    I have been working at J.B. Hunt part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fantastic company to work for. It is a Fortune 500 company but still feels small, which which is refreshing in the business world. Strong emphasis on safety culture and having fun at work (while still being productive). Management provides plenty of opportunities to expand your skill set and makes going to work fun. I haven't worked with anyone that I disliked. I couldn't have asked for a better company to intern for this year.

    Cons

    It's not always fun working with drivers... but not every job is perfect. There can be some downtime or you can have a crazy hectic day. Unpredictable (but I kind of like it).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep maintaining small company feel while expanding business.

    I worked at J.B. Hunt as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    There is an overall friendly work environment. The company is strong in the industry and growing under good leadership. There is a casual atmosphere in the company.

    Cons

    The upper management is generally older and less innovative. Lowell, AR is also a very small town so most employees live in nearby towns and commute.

    Pros

    Great equipment, got freight pretty easy going once you get thru all the bs. Great group of drivers. Brokedown want to go home just tell them they will get you home. Home every weekend with out fail.

    Cons

    Shop Sucks week plus to get anything fixed. Chicago can be hell if you do not know what you are doing. Company polices can protect you but more likely to screw you if you dont know what youre doing i.e. youre a retard.
