Pros

Solid company with a stable future. Executive management is good as it gets in transportation industry. Even during the tough economic times, while everyone was cutting employees with no human regard, JBH management was exceptional in finding ways to prevent such harsh cuts. Company truly works hard everyday with safety culture.

Cons

Compensation. There's a reason why 65% of the corporate employees work second jobs rather than spend the time with their family. The company is very top heavy with salaried lower/middle management. This makes for some confusion at times.

Advice to Management

OTR is what got you where you are. JBI and DCS are taking you where you're going. I understand upper management gets it, but middle management not so much. They preach it, but don't get it. Use your customer base in DCS and personel in brokerage to start up air freight. You have 85 great new locations to utilize as cartage agents.

    Hard work, no gain, odd management style.

    Pros

    Lots of empowering for individuals
    People are generally good.

    Cons

    Horrible management, and their managers are probably even worse.
    Either people have been there for less than 3 years or for over 15, usually no in betweens.
    All about who you know and not what you know of-course.

    Advice to Management

    Really need to concentrate on your management. People leave the company because they hate their managers, not the company.

  2. Steady work that's always there

    Promote the attitude that JB Hunt himself had and remind people that this is still a company of individuals rather than a company of managers.
