    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.

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

    Pros

    The people are great.
    Laid back, but fast-paced as well.
    Very satisfying.

    Depending on your job, things can get repetitive.
    Some departments are crazy about your numbers.

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    I like the benefits package, pay is decent, I have a great Driver Manager (Julie Jones) she keeps me moving (on week days) i m just one of the lucky drivers the get an outstanding DM. Lowell, Arkansas DM's are a joke!!!!! They could use some pointers from the Dallas yard DM's

    Cons

    If you dont have a load that will carry you though the weekend then your S.O.L weekend dispatch sucks!!!!! Absolutely no support on weekends, no home/work balance, they try to dispatch you on a load even if youre taking your 48hr hometime, on weekends. way to many live loads, would like to have more drop & hooks. DM's treat drivers like we're they scum of the earth.

    Advice to Management

    Without drivers no one gets paid, drivers are treated like crap. The recidivism rate would drop if drivers treated more like humans than mules. We have families too. Drivers sacrifice way more than any other person in the company so we should be treated better. J.B. should work on retaining experienced driver. Starting with training better DM's most have no people skills.

    Pros

    There is a multitude of opportunities, great people and if you apply yourself, you will learn and grow daily.

    Cons

    Tough to have a work/life balance and be a top performer

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the tedious activities associated with the sales position. There should be fewer steps to getting an opportunity in the door, priced and proposal and with documenting your customer interaction. The CRM should be customized to make the process self-explanatory.
