Former Employee - Operations Manager in South Boston, VA

I worked at J.B. Hunt

Pros

Great place to work, it's hard and fast paced but it's very satisfying and rewarding. The compensation, bonus, and benefits packages were also good.

Cons

Has to work 6 to 7 deays a week sometomes if we got busy udring peak shipping times and that was unpaid over-time because I was salary.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work in over-time pay if working the weekends to make it fair. The compensation was good but didn't make up for the hours of the weekends worked.

    I have been working at J.B. Hunt

    Pros

    The best reasons to work at this job is that most of the fleet managers are understanding and able to deal with drivers with courtesy and respect. They are very much concerned about safety and on-time delivery and will reward great performance. The have newer model trucks and kept exceptionally clean. Maintenance staff is very helpful and their attitudes towards the drivers has become better. Overall, this is a GREAT place to work as a Local Driver.

    Cons

    At this particular location, it is difficult to work with 1 or 2 managers, but overall this location is the best place I have worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PLEASE give training on how to deal with internal customers, for the Drivers, Maintenance Workers, and Fleet managers.

    Current Employee - Operations Supervisor  in  Chicago, IL
    Current Employee - Operations Supervisor in 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 ManagementAdvice

    -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
