Excellent opportunity to gain experience

Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) Columbus, OH

ProsNo day is ever the same... You will face constant challenges and learn a lot fast!! Lots of opportunity for growth in a organizaiton with a great product and service in all areas. National company with opportunities to move...

ConsYou will work 50-65 hours and possibly have a on-call phone on the weekends...It's borderline unacceptable to move outside the region and you will get no support to move outside of it...Poor benefits... No Vacations for a year and after a year, 5 days... 401k is basically a 3% (6% of half) match...Extremely stressful work environment (Definitely losing hair). Very poor training from the get-go... Sink or Swim mentality. Depending on the customer you work for, you are subject to their hours of operation... Retail (2/3 days off a year) some other industries (every holiday).

Advice to Senior ManagementMy only advice is 5 vacation days after 6 months, 7 after a year... after 6 months you have learned so much and your constant interaction with aggressive under-educated individuals wears on your mentality significantly.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Its a stepping stone

    Senior Carrier Sales Coordinator (Current Employee) Overland Park, KS

    I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Every day you face a new challenge. You will never get board with what you are doing. If you have the ride mind set and… Cons: Money. You put in 50+ hours a week, work weekends, skip lunches and don't get paid for it. Not only that but when you do… Advice to Senior Management: Learn to praise your employees more. An award a month given to the "poplar" employee isn't enough. You have a lot of good talent that… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
