    I worked at J.B. Hunt full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    great company, good pay rate, friendly staff who is very helpful for drivers

    Cons

    some drivers seem to get more miles and the owner/operators get preference over company drivers from what I saw. Company drivers do a lot of sitting and waiting for loads. Load miles too short, Not many loads over 250 miles. That is J B Hunt way of doing business. They take the short loads no other company wants and they are making money. It is just not great for a driver! Mostdrivers like

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe they can look at getting more long mile loads. Things may have changed since I was there.

    Current Employee - Fleet Manager
    Current Employee - Fleet Manager

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

    Pros

    Catered lunches at $5.00. Exercise equipment, locker rooms. Nice walking/running track and healthy living programs coordinated by HR.

    Cons

    Extremely stressful. Mediocre pay for the work done. Very small raises. Bonuses always seem to end up being lower than projected due to something lowering our EPS (like payouts to retirees).
