    Make all loads available to any driver with the hours to run.

    Pros

    J.B. Hunt recently became a Fortune 500 company and is very financially stable. Decent benefits and 401K. Company is poised for vast growth and there will be many management-level job opportunities. CEO and executive management are very forward-thinking and always looking to improve. With 4 divisions across the entire U.S., there are a lot of different areas of logistics that you can gain experience and exposure to.

    Cons

    Work-life balance and training programs are not great. The company fails to compensate the most talented employees with lackluster annual increases and average salaries. I have seen many driven and talented employees leave the company because they were not compensated for the amount of production and benefit they brought to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider your base salary pay, vacation days, and work-life balance. You have high turnover for low to mid-level management because you keep compensation low. This obviously should not be applied across the board, but you should take time to recognize your truly talented employees who could provide great benefit in life-long careers with J.B. Hunt, and take care of them. Thus reducing your turnover, the cost of brining in a new hire, and the huge cost of losing great leaders who would be well worth the added investment to benefit the company long-term.
