Pros

Steady paycheck and you will never get laidoff new trucks and trailers easy work

    I have been working at J.B. Hunt

    Pros

    Compensation for things other companies don't or won't pay, flexible scheduling as needed, equipment is well maintained, managers very easy to talk to.

    Cons

    Medical insurance is not the best, co pays are expensive, out sick or injured more than three days you must take a new DOT physical and have personal physician sign a ton of paperwork which is a hassle, point system used against you when you must be out of work unless fleet mgr is notified 24 hrs in advance, if sick he must know beforehand, who plans to be sick?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp the aforementioned point system, it'sa major detractor to those who want to stay with the company, improve the mileage pay scale to keep up with the cost of living, .34 a mile to start is a slap in the face to someone with over 20 years driving experience.

    Pros

    Decent Job
    Great stepping stone to another company/career
    Form great relationships with your customers/drivers
    Great knowledge for logistic industry

    Cons

    Low pay
    No room for advancement beyond Account Manager
    Management is too secretive
    "Good ol boy" atmosphere
    Operations Managers really make the final decisions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so secretive and let managers know what new business is out there
    Stop promoting your "friends"
    Managers you do not relocate, stop rewarding them with good accounts
    Stop punishing manager who relocate, work at 24/7 accounts with terrible supervisors
