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

    Pros

    I honestly can't think of a single good thing about JB Hunt. See notes below.

    Cons

    Lack of effective management structure. Failure to properly communicate across teams; more of a silo'd team structure than cross management. Lack of professionalism all the time.

    Pros

    Large company, plenty of opportunities.

    Cons

    No formal training, forced to lie to customers, and long work hours for low pay. Bonus plan is always changed so that you never get your full bonus amount. Managers do no work and take all of your credit. No vacation of time off, and poor work-life balance.

    I worked at J.B. Hunt full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A paycheck and even that is low compared to industry standards

    Cons

    We are encouraged to lie to customers, hellish work environment. Work long hours get paid pennies, try to scam you on PTO, benefits are a joke, management only cares about themselves and try to make it seem like they are there for you, but they are not. If something goes bad and is out of your control specifically and a carrier it is your fault no matter what. Even if you cover over 100 loads and 99 of them are perfect and 1 goes bad you still get in trouble. This type of work place is really not worth it, save yourself the headache and look else where. You will be stuck in the same position for a long time with no growth.

    Advice to Management

    Be a leader not a manager. Influence your employees and have their backs. DON'T BE SELFISH!

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

    Pros

    starting salary, at first-but then you are told you must work 9-10 hrs per day without breaks or a lunch Great job for someone right out of college or for those with limited brain capacity

    Cons

    boring, unorganized, I've worked at small businesses that have better technology and processes. Micro managed, under staffed. You are actually scolded for stepping away from your desk for more then 3 minutes during a 10 hour shift. Recruiters mislead applicants with hours, schedule etc. No vacation until after 1 year of service. Only holidays off are Christmas and Thanksgiving.

    Advice to Management

    your extremely high turnover rate is not due to the people you hire, but the atmosphere, work/life balance that would turn anyone with experience away

    Pros

    Nothing good to say about the company.

    Cons

    The company expects a lot of work for very little pay.

    Advice to Management

    Improve pay and work/life balance or continue to lose talented frontline operators.

    I worked at J.B. Hunt full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I can't say that there were any to speak of that I could see. Oh, they have a terminal in Chicago which is my hometown.

    Cons

    Dispatcher expect to run you up to your last minute of drive time. After completing orientation took 5 weeks to get me into a truck that was not set up for me to use my CPAP machine. Too much time wasted looking for empty trailers. Sub-standard equipment. Maintenance shop that is constantly behind on workload, lack of attention to detail. Cannot provide drivers who do not smoke with a smoke free work environment. Witnessed a maintenance employee smoking on the clock while performing repairs in the cab of a drivers truck. Staff assigned to clean and detail trucks are ineffective at best, not held accountable for lack of work standards. If truck requires service while in Chicago, plan to be there atleast 4-5 days before repairs are complete. They will keep you waiting!

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with people before they come to orientation so they won't have to waste their time or miss out on other opportunities. I turned down other companies with better offers and better equipment only to be misled by this company.


  11. I was totally overwhelmed by all it takes to do simple tasks

    Pros

    Plenty of work most of time.

    Cons

    Extremely over structured. You have to account for every minute. You have to take pictures before you touch anything. You spend more time on computer than actually doing the work.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at what you expect from your employees. Too much!
