    Good Pay, Good People, Long Hours

    Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsPeople 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.

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

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

    Decent place to work if you're with the right account.

    Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) Fort Worth, TX

    ProsJ.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.

    ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementRespect 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
