    I have been working at J.B. Hunt

    Pros

    The pay is good even when it's slow. Easy to make $1000/week for a 5 day work week. You keep an activity sheet and you calculate your pay at the end of everyday. it averages $220/day if you're willing to put in 12 hours a day. Management is good. Definitely a friendly atmosphere. Really lenient on changing shifts or needing days off. Generally a good company to work for if you're a decent, hard worker.

    Cons

    Benefits are very expensive. They assign you a truck but you share it and sometimes they aren't done with their shift when it's time for yours so you have to walk the terminal searching for a loaner for the day (doesn't sound bad but it's annoying when you're in a hurry), you WILL start offun graveyard. Everything JB Hunt does is based off seniority so all the good shifts go to the drivers who have been there for years. I've met people that have been there for 5 years and are still on the graveyard Shift. The seniority thing also gets annoying because if you request a day off a couple weeks in advance but if someone who has been there longer than you requests the same day they won't give it to you. LONG HOURS TO MAKE GOOD MONEY. 14 hours a day is not uncommon to make $ 200.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Petter pay packages so we don't have to burn ourselves out working 12-14 hours a day. Cheaper benefits would be nice too $160/week for a family is outrageous.

    I worked at J.B. Hunt full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    *Company is aware of it's culture and works to improve it.
    *Work-life balance is respected.
    *Well defined career progression.
    *Company is stable and healthy.

    Cons

    *IT teams are extremely siloed.
    *Total compensation relies on bonus to be competitive.
    *Project management varies wildly between managers - doesn't seem to be any corporate standards.
    *Upper management is pretty mysterious - not sure what they do.
    *Company culture is actively against being a 'technology company' - views technology more as a cost of doing business than part of the business.
    *Vacation policy is pretty harsh, have to work 7 years before getting the 3rd week off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wanted to clear something up - I would recommend working at Hunt to somebody fresh out of college, but I likely would not recommend it to a more experienced developer. The company seems somewhat aware of the fact that its best selling point to prospective employees in the area is that it isn't Walmart or Tyson, which I mean both positively and negatively.

    I was pretty vaguely aware of what my manager's boss did day to day, but beyond that it was only smoke and mirrors. We heard more from business leadership than IT leadership.

    Pros

    You can work anywhere in the country. They have locations and driving jobs that can satisfy almost anyone.

    Cons

    Very hard to get promoted up from a driver to an office position even though they talk about doing this. Very business driven and not driver driven.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on creating a cohesive team with your management and drivers. This will lower turnover and strengthen customer company relationships.
