Pros

good work life balance, engineers get to work on cool and interesting projects, good recognition for job well done, great people. It's a great place to start your career and get a lot of experience quickly.

Cons

salary and benefits below market for the role, maybe not for the transportation industry. it's a bit good ole boy company and career progress can be slower than other places

    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
