I worked at J.B. Hunt full-time for more than a year

Pros

Younger coworkers, independence, experience to use somewhere else in the future

Cons

On-call 24/7. You'll have drivers calling you day and night. The pay is not worth the work put in. Mgmt. never gave a "good job." Your life revolves around catering to the needs of truck drivers so they won't quit on you. If a driver gets in a collision, it's considered the fault of the account mgmt. Basically, when things are going good, you hear nothing. When things are going bad, It's somehow your fault and you hear about it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As the job market gets better, the only way to keep employees is to pay them a fair wage for the work involved. Either 1) Pay more or 2) find a way to make the job less work (i.e. no on call, set hours of operations, etc...)

    No incentive to work hard, over work salaried employees due to cutbacks, bad bonus plan for salaried managers, management does not reward for hard work, management does not listen to workers, no good promotion within, could pay more, always "more for less"
