Pros

For an entry level driver, they offer some competitive pay packages. They were one of the first companies to offer regional jobs where they get you home every weekend.

Cons

Management is not very helpful. They always want you to do something, but when you ask for a favor the answer is always NO!!!!!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees. You are not the one out there dealing with all of the customers. Treat your employees with a little bit more respect.

    Pros

    jb hunt seems to care about their drivers. a large variety of benefit packages to meet most needs. they are diversifying into different areas of trucking ie. intermodal, dedicated, regional. the equipment is new and well-maintained. a strong emphasis is placed on compliance and safety.

    Cons

    trucking is trucking, long days, ups and downs in freight, dispatchers who do not know trucking and so on and so forth. jb seems to become more corporate the higher you go up the chain of command. generic answers to non-generic issues seems to be the norm once an issue leaves the region and is contemplated at headquarters

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep on being on the cutting edge of the industry. a well-compensated driver is a safe driver. take driver feedback to heart, we are the front line of the company and sometimes foresee problems before they occur. fight the unions to the end. we all pay enough already for taxes and benefits without having to pay union fat cats as well

    Lots of opportunity for growth, but be careful what account you work for in the DCS division.

    I worked at J.B. Hunt

    Pros

    I worked in the Dedicated Contracts Division which meant that we worked as contractors within our customers distribution centers. There seemed to be a lot of turnover as each office was rather small, so if you were motivated and willing to relocate within a large region, there we lots of opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    The small size of the offices and the fact that each one was a semi-autonomous unit that acted as their personal transportation department. In a small office, any conflict is magnified ten fold, and your every action is analyzed by your customers. This makes for a very tense environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a stronger interest in the environments formed in each DCS account. Lobby for your own employees if the customer is making unreasonable demands and bring in additional staff rather than expect the office staff to put in 60+ hour weeks
