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

    Pros

    Team environment, individual growth & access to senior management. opportunities to develop and grow.

    Cons

    demanding job on time and being on call especially with lower end compensation, tendency to nickle and dime on compensation. Business units still quite silo'd, and within the same division lots of internal strife due to budget restraints.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your people, seek to develop current employees while bringing in the right people from outside to add what we lack.
    Ensure that operations within brokerage are respected and treated equally to salesmen. When you get good operations teams ensure you are willing to compensate for similar levels to market for industry and similar job responsibilities in other industries

    Pros

    Excellent safety program, dayshift hours. Very Structured work environment, web based computer system is simple to undserstand.

    Cons

    One-word: Micro management. If you are mechanic, you will be yelled at for taking too long on a job. You won't go a week without the manager threatening to fire you if your time numbers are not good enough. If the manager or supervisor does not like how you are doing a job, they will stop you and try to get you to do it their way, all while yelling at you and insulting you. They really like to "crack the whip" at technicians and partsman. No matter how good you are, it is never enough for them. Management and Supervisors do not follow company policy on training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of unrealistic performance goals for you shop and just look at overall performance.
