I worked at J.B. Hunt full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Stability, little to no outsourcing of jobs; forward thinking; technology

Cons

Salaried personnel work 50+ hours a week; very political enviroment, especially within IT (Applications) management; some higher levels of management very egotistical and condescending which prevents open lines of communication; difficult to concentrate, high stress in some groups (Operations, Brokerage) due to open floor plan, lack of privacy within new workstation design; employee morale extremely poor in some departments.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Question employees on how they feel about their management; reduce work hours for personnel so they can have more of a work/life balance; show more appreciation to driving force (identify ways to recognize drivers other than miles alone); ensure management treats employees with respect; reduce need for CYA practices.

    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.
