    I have been working at J.B. Hunt as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great culture and great people to work around. The managers really care about their employees and will do everything to ensure you are comfortable in your position.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of upward movement. Upward movement is gained through time at the company alone, not really by performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more promotions to employees to encourage better work.

    Terrible Company To Work For

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

    Pros

    Managers who act as if they care about you

    Cons

    No work life balance
    Expected to use personal phone for company business at all times of the night/day
    Terrible compensation which isn't explained properly
    Vacation time and salary are non negotiable, but H.R. acts as if they are.
    Promised promotions are never delivered
    Training is absolutely terrible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a grip on the company and listen to employees. Every survey you send out you are told work life balance and compensation are the number one issues that you promise to work to improve and never do!
    Stop putting money first and think about your employees, sometimes Walmart will just have to wait.

    Good experience in Logistics however compensation and career path do not match up with my interests

    Current Employee - Carrier Sales Coordinator in Lowell, AR
    Current Employee - Carrier Sales Coordinator in Lowell, AR

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

    Pros

    The corporate culture is very friendly and inviting. Fortune 500 gives great exposure to large customers and all aspects of the transportation industry.

    Cons

    Slow to react to internal issues or employee needs. Compensation no better than industry average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more emphasis on retaining talent and cutting turnover rate. Young workers get the impression that intelligence and hard work isn't valued like it should be.

    Pros

    Pay, Rate of raises, benefits, great eating & exercise facilities on site.

    Cons

    High Stress, High Competition. Everyone is at each others throats to move up and the pace is so quick that you have to be very careful not to drown. If it isn't something your heart is in it will eat you up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more PTO. Spread team work evenly. Recognize success and reward.
