    I have been working at J.B. Hunt as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great culture and great people to work around. The managers really care about their employees and will do everything to ensure you are comfortable in your position.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of upward movement. Upward movement is gained through time at the company alone, not really by performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more promotions to employees to encourage better work.

    Terrible Company To Work For

    I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Managers who act as if they care about you

    Cons

    No work life balance
    Expected to use personal phone for company business at all times of the night/day
    Terrible compensation which isn't explained properly
    Vacation time and salary are non negotiable, but H.R. acts as if they are.
    Promised promotions are never delivered
    Training is absolutely terrible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a grip on the company and listen to employees. Every survey you send out you are told work life balance and compensation are the number one issues that you promise to work to improve and never do!
    Stop putting money first and think about your employees, sometimes Walmart will just have to wait.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    From my understanding the old jb hunt was very good at taking care of the driver.The current is all about money.That's why they have a revolving door.
