    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.

    I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Values of the senior management team, people, work ethic

    Cons

    The salaries are not competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Our senior management team is second to none. I take pride in the fact that I work for such amazing individuals. The reason that I am so loyal to JB Hunt, and not lured away by more money, is because of the leadership I have surrounding me. My one piece of advice to our management team is to pay our employees what the industry is paying. We are losing a lot of really amazing people, because our salaries do not compete.
