    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.

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

    Pros

    The only pro I can give JBH is that I enjoyed the people that I worked with.

    Cons

    The environment at JBH is very intense. I remember being constantly yelled at for things out of my control. I would not wish this job on my worst enemy. I was told to lie to truckers in order to meet deadlines- not in my moral code- so that was the last straw. The hours were insane for the low pay. Come in at 7am and leave at 8pm. Oh, and don't even think about taking a lunch break, doctor visit, or picking up a child from daycare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get on the floor and see how hard your employees are working to make YOU money. Notice how they are being treated and fix the problem. Not one person should ever be degraded in front of an entire floor of workers.

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

    Pros

    Opened my eyes to the reality of the workforce.

    Cons

    -Lots of hours. Expect to work at least 12-14 hours per day and get called on weekends. Especially if you're young.
    -Mediocre pay scale isn't worth time and effort invested
    -Constant criticism from upper management
    -Training is non-existent. All upper management knows this, but never the less forces you to do tasks that you were never properly trained to do.
    -Company cycles through countless low-paid temps yet expects top performance at all times.
    -Good Old Boy mentality
    -Don't expect much in the form of promotions. I was considered lucky to see even a 5% increase in salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Stop harassing employees with numerous condescending email, texts, and phone calls for every little mistake that's made.

    I worked at J.B. Hunt full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lots of work
    at Least its a job

    Cons

    Where do I start? Work and Life balance is terrible. They avoid paying for things like breakdowns. Often miss (avoid?) paying for extras like drop and hooks, unloading times. Too much power given to store associates in paperwork that effects pay. Pay is wrong all the time, yet that problem is never fixed, it just keeps happenning. Avoidance is the standard way to take on problems. If you are a problem child, or they even think you are, you are terminated. They have a really poor culture that just keeps on getting passed through as people play the game and move up by being quiet, Health and safety concerns at this location. No sick days, threaten you with firing. Bad insurance program.
    They are terrified of unionization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop plugging in newbies in both management and driving force. The avoidance factor is unreal there. Fix problems, but more importantly start listening to your employees, otherwise you'll stay a last resort. You should really think about fixing these issues, because the driving universe has the goods on you.
