    I worked at J.B. Hunt full-time

    Pros

    If you live in NW Arkansas, they will likely hire you eventually due to constant turnover in basic positions.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, no core values, no sustainable culture, high turnover of talented leaders and meritless promotion of less talented 'hanging on' leaders. Brokerage operation is a true sweat-shop with commission driven cold-calling, just look around at the age group...they draw desperate college grads in only to grind-them-up in 6 months or so. No cafeteria, the gym is a joke, being an executive is a social status achievement and contributes to the absolute void of direction by the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    spend more time and energy building the values of the organization and less time feeding-off the company earnings. Address real leadership gaps, create and empower a true performance management process.

    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.
