    Pros

    People are great to work with. The other managers I worked with have been easy going and willing to help one another out. The regional managers are also very good to work for.Pay is pretty good, especially for those coming out of college. Opportunity to see various types of shipping operations. You will defiantly learn a lot very quickly.

    Cons

    Long hours and lots of stress. But this varies depending on where you work at. Some accounts have one person managing them while others have multiple. The stress level also varies depending on where you work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The workload for some is a little much, especially on the accounts with one manager.

    Turn and burn attitude towards front line managers, it apprears as may career has progressed that they are not set up to retain lower level management.
    Expanding fast, mid level management can be overwhelmed and not address operational concerns at your expense

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Frontline managers have valuable knowledge that needs to be harvested before prior to customer issues.

    I have been working at J.B. Hunt

    Pros

    J.B. Hunt is a decent place to work if you want to get a year of experience fresh out of college. The pay is on par with most entry level jobs for college grads. The benefits package is pretty decent also.

    Cons

    The management structure here is atrocious. People are promoted for doing a good job, which is not a bad thing. But some of these people have no idea of what it takes to be a leader, mentor, coach, etc. The management style is based on discipline and dismiss, rather than coach and correct. Upper management seems to make a lot of decisions based off emotions rather than logic. And beware of the Arkansas connection. It seems as if 85% of the management team has some connection to that state or school. If you're not one of them, you probably don't matter.

    For anyone other than a first year college grad, the pay is ridiculous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your management team and stop treating them like children. Promote leaders, not just folks that do-gooders that don't have a clue on how to manage.
