    Turn and burn attitude towards front line managers, it apprears as may career has progressed that they are not set up to retain lower level management.
    Expanding fast, mid level management can be overwhelmed and not address operational concerns at your expense

    Frontline managers have valuable knowledge that needs to be harvested before prior to customer issues.

    I worked at J.B. Hunt full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great experience working with a vast array of different industries, good health insurance and benefits. Overall good training models, military friendly.

    Cons

    Corp management is out of touch with region employees, great managers quit or are fired. Region OM's are less experienced than the people they manage. Good ol boy system is fully in place. Ideas are not welcomed, micro manage is the standard. Account managers are told to manage reports not their business. Not enough compensation for the hours of work you put in. Loves to hire military, however the leadership brought to the table by veterans is fostered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote based on experience, not whom you like better. Gain control of region VP's, and ensure they are leading by example. Don't be afraid to get rid of bad employees so that you retain the good ones.
