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

    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.

    I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.

    Pros

    The company takes care of their employees as long as the employees do their job. There's never a point with the company where you can't move up anymore until you become the CEO. They always want the employees to blossom into their fullest potential. I'm proud to work for JB Hunt.

    Cons

    Haven't experienced any with the company yet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great motivating skills and providing safety training to continue to be the best.

    I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    JB Hunt is an aggressively growing company that affords competent people the chance for quick advancement. The executive management team has set their sights high and continue to deliver. JB Hunt promotes from within and appears to take care of the people who stick with them.

    Cons

    The company is internally segmented into four divisions that sometimes seem to clash and the pay structure doesn't provide incentive for operations to work together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cross train management in different divisions to bring the organization together as a whole operationally.
