    I have been working at J.B. Hunt

    Pros

    J.B. Hunt is a decent place to work if you want to get a year of experience fresh out of college. The pay is on par with most entry level jobs for college grads. The benefits package is pretty decent also.

    Cons

    The management structure here is atrocious. People are promoted for doing a good job, which is not a bad thing. But some of these people have no idea of what it takes to be a leader, mentor, coach, etc. The management style is based on discipline and dismiss, rather than coach and correct. Upper management seems to make a lot of decisions based off emotions rather than logic. And beware of the Arkansas connection. It seems as if 85% of the management team has some connection to that state or school. If you're not one of them, you probably don't matter.

    For anyone other than a first year college grad, the pay is ridiculous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your management team and stop treating them like children. Promote leaders, not just folks that do-gooders that don't have a clue on how to manage.

    Good experience in Logistics however compensation and career path do not match up with my interests

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

    Pros

    The corporate culture is very friendly and inviting. Fortune 500 gives great exposure to large customers and all aspects of the transportation industry.

    Cons

    Slow to react to internal issues or employee needs. Compensation no better than industry average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more emphasis on retaining talent and cutting turnover rate. Young workers get the impression that intelligence and hard work isn't valued like it should be.

    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
