    Challenging, but interesting and fun!

    Account Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsFast paced promotions, strong culture of individual growth, freedom of movement within the company, and very good future prospects. Pay is decent.

    ConsIf you are not a person that is self-driven, a very good planner, or possibly have difficulty working with people that have strong personalities; this job will be difficult for you as a manager.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlan movements according to capacity available or try to scale integration to meet capacity development histories. Going too fast can hurt business relationships.

    Great career advancement and skill development

    IS Professional (Current Employee)

    ProsManagement is willing to take chances on you, allow you to try new things to grow and advance. Fast career progression if you are hard working and talented

    ConsOverall, compensation is very competitive, but sometimes people are confused that a large portion of that is in the bonus system. The industry can be slowed down during hard economic times, though the diverse business units help to hedge against it.

    ProsGood people, who are passionate about what they do. Knowledgeable. Big players in the logistics sphere.

    A Company That Cares about Their Employees and Customers

    Dedicated Manager In Training (Current Employee)
    Rialto, CA

    ProsThe company takes care of their employees as long as the employees do their job. There's never a point with the company where you can't move up anymore until you become the CEO. They always want the employees to blossom into their fullest potential. I'm proud to work for JB Hunt.

    ConsHaven't experienced any with the company yet.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great motivating skills and providing safety training to continue to be the best.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Amazing Company!

    Transportation Manager (Current Employee)
    Kansas City, MO

    ProsJB Hunt is an aggressively growing company that affords competent people the chance for quick advancement. The executive management team has set their sights high and continue to deliver. JB Hunt promotes from within and appears to take care of the people who stick with them.

    ConsThe company is internally segmented into four divisions that sometimes seem to clash and the pay structure doesn't provide incentive for operations to work together.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCross train management in different divisions to bring the organization together as a whole operationally.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
