JB Hunt is ...

Operations Supervisor (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at J.B. Hunt

Pros- Learn a lot regarding management skills and how to deal with different personalities.
- The starting salary is pretty good, possible structure for bonuses differ per account.
- More of a great learning experience.
- JB has different segments within the company: ICS, DCS, Intermodal, Van

Cons- Very long hours which are not fair across the board. Some people work 7, some 12 a day and we all make the same salary.
- Not many opportunities for advancement unless you want to move out of the Chicago area.
- You plateau fast. 1 promotion within 6-9 months of being there, and then become stagnant.
- Lack of communication of where you stand.

Advice to Senior Management-Don't be afraid to tell the management team what a great job they're doing. Sometimes people feel like there hard work goes unrecognized.
-Be less secretive regarding promotions / growth. Let it be competitive, let people know what's out there and let them work for it.
-Customize salary in correlation to work ethic / account specific
