    I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    They are focused on making working with JBHunt the best experience of your life. For the first time I feel like I am part of a family when I go to work each day. I feel like I am making a difference in peoples lives and that I am helping people reach levels they themselves never thought they could. Great company to work, career driven and options for everyone no matter what season of life you are in.

    Cons

    So fare I have found no downsides, they have accomidated my needs and my families needs the entire 9 years I have been with them. I will one day retire from JB Hunt it is the last place I intend on ever working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the Managers could use some help developing their customer service, but it is a work in progress which I feel is going in the right direction. They are off to a great start at genuinely making people feel like people and helping the people who are the heart of the company be the most important asset in the company.

    Pros

    Fast paced promotions, strong culture of individual growth, freedom of movement within the company, and very good future prospects. Pay is decent.

    Cons

    If you are not a person that is self-driven, a very good planner, or possibly have difficulty working with people that have strong personalities; this job will be difficult for you as a manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan movements according to capacity available or try to scale integration to meet capacity development histories. Going too fast can hurt business relationships.

    Pros

    Management is willing to take chances on you, allow you to try new things to grow and advance. Fast career progression if you are hard working and talented

    Cons

    Overall, compensation is very competitive, but sometimes people are confused that a large portion of that is in the bonus system. The industry can be slowed down during hard economic times, though the diverse business units help to hedge against it.
