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

    Pros

    Pay, Rate of raises, benefits, great eating & exercise facilities on site.

    Cons

    High Stress, High Competition. Everyone is at each others throats to move up and the pace is so quick that you have to be very careful not to drown. If it isn't something your heart is in it will eat you up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more PTO. Spread team work evenly. Recognize success and reward.

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

    Pros

    Stable job if you could tolerate all the politics.

    Cons

    Blatant favoritism in the SW region. Unethical managers and pay was lower than expected considering the work load. Positions created out of thin air for friends and family of Operations Mangers, while deserving supervisors remained stuck in the same positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take every course on leadership and read every book on diversity in the workplace that's out there. Understand that high turnover is a sign that you have failed the employee. Also, you get what you pay for, if only fresh college grads are applying for your positions expect a lot of bumps in the road while they learn common things that most people with a couple years experience already know how to handle. Also expect the same issues to occur over and over because most supervisors leave the company within a year or two, in the SW region.

    Pros

    Good compensation, benefits, somewhat flexible

    Cons

    Improper training when first hired, lack of opportunity for growth, if you don't know the hire-ups, you simply won't succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to get involved with bottom-line employees and avoid covering up for certain people's alcohol intoxication and stop promoting lewd behavior

    The culture is very laid back.

    Work-life balance leaves a lot to be desired, there is little development of employees, a bit of an unprofessional (blue collar) type of environment.

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

    Pros

    The majority of the people I worked with were great. The company encourages the employees to do charity work within the community. Benefits aren't bad.

    Cons

    Salary for certain management positions is pitiful. Hourly pay is fairly competitive though. There's no work/home life balance for management in the department I worked in. Even though the majority of the coworkers are great, there are a couple bad apples in upper management they won't get rid of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a hard look at upper management.
