    Pros

    They have good benefits and co workers are great

    Cons

    Hard work is almost never rewarded in this company. Also you are never trained to take the next level position unless you leave the company

    Advice to Management

    pay attention to hard work and not just the "ideas" Also increase opportunity for growth in the company instead of playing favorites

    Pros

    Loyal, great amenities, very flexible and great benefits. Skyrocketing up the ladder, company has grown tremendously over the past few years.

    Cons

    Involves sitting at a cubicle all day for pretty much any job. My job become fairly tedious after a few years.

    Advice to Management

    Not much bad to say. Love the direction the company is going. Only recommendation is to promote to higher positions within the company more often.

  6. A lot of opportunities for advancement if you work hard.

    Keep focusing on the driver. J.B. Hunt is starting to regain a positive image with drivers.

    Good company to get started in your career but not a long term play.

    Pros

    Learn a lot in a quick amount of time. You are given a lot of responsibility and have a lot of freedom in your work.

    Cons

    There is no work life balance and management runs very thin. A lot of turnover which puts a lot of pressure on every employee. Vacation time is not honored and puts the managers in position of either quitting or giving up their time. Everyone that leaves the job gets a better job making more money and working a shift that involves an actual work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Management still runs as if we are in a recession and does not take into account the economy becoming healthy again. The employees need to be paid for the work they put in and the vacation needs to be honored. Make sure the growth is sustainable before looking for additional accounts.

    Work on keeping good managers. It seems that all the good managers keep leaving the company.

    Pros

    Solid company financially, dependable paycheck.

    Cons

    Most openings are lateral moves and some bosses like to strong arm employees into not leaving their team.

    Advice to Management

    Treat company employees like you treat the drivers when there are open trucks to fill.

    Pros

    at least the paycheck cashes

    Cons

    Truck division continues to downsize management roles. Really bad about giving people 30 days to find a job every March for the past 3 years. Has gotten rid of management that cares and replaced with "Yes" people. Would rather play loud music and throw footballs around the office instead of working.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to stop running off their talented employees. They're losing them daily and replacing with inexperience and it shows in profitability in truck and ics divisions.

    Pros

    Good company, with talented leadership. Leader within the transportation industry especially the Intermodal segment. Company will continue to be a top performer due to unique relationship with railroad.

    Cons

    Not much mobility, modest to low pay. Easy to get comfortable and stay too long in one job. Time off is decent however you don't get 4 weeks until after 15 years. Training is limited and moving within the company can be difficult depending on your experience.

    Advice to Management

    Consider increasing pay and time off or work from home alternatives that give employees more flexibility in todays work environment. The biggest complaint employees have is lack of transparency, low pay, and poor communication between groups. Helping employees find their career path and providing opportunities to train to meet those goals is equally important.
