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

    Pros

    Without a doubt the worst OTR company in the united states that I have worked for.

    Cons

    Trying to get home , pay and generally being treated like crap, trying ti get sleep while dispatchers send numerous messages over a QUALCOMM to tell you irrelevant info.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enjoy the fruits of your elitist business plan while your reputation continues to one of the industry's worst. Just remember there are a finite number of truck drivers on this planet and the vast majority already know from former employees like me how sorry JB hunt is

    Pros

    Great benefits, Awesome support system, Informative management crew.

    Cons

    Can not physically unload anymore. Trailers are just too hot to work in. Docks rarely have fans on them and those that do rarely ever use them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back the exit interview.

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

    Pros

    Equipment is replaced every 3 years. Facilities are newer. Most management actually cares about their employees, all the way up to the regional director. They're very focused on keeping their employees safe. There's also a welcome distance kept between drivers and mechanics. There's a 4 day work week. Almost everyone in maintenance management started out working as a mechanic or a driver then moved up and you can too. They have discount programs with multiple nationwide company's like verizon, jeep, gm

    Cons

    The pay is middle of the road and the benefits are a joke. Your required holidays come out of you're PTO and if you run out before a holiday expect a short paycheck. They are very strict when it comes to their standard repair times and they try to cut them down as often as they can. There's no overtime allowed. They often run out of soap and towels and won't order more until the month is out and anyone who has ever finished a dirty job can attest to the importance of being able to get clean.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more manufacturer based training. PTO should not go towards national holidays. And health benefits needs a major overhaul

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

    Pros

    Good equipment and most managers are good

    Cons

    They need to change to only having Safety Managers that have a current CDL license and have actually driven a truck why should I have to explain myself to somebody that has never driven a commercial vehicle. Pay for local drivers average 1100.00 a week pay is not by the hour. When you divide your pay by your average hours worked it equals out to less than 14.00 hr most drivers work a 70 hour week. LTL companies pay around $18.00 to $27.00 hour

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay local drivers by the hour instead of by the mile. Local drivers can not make a living getting paid by the mile

    Pros

    Management is good, allow you to try new things.

    Cons

    Team is always trying to find fault on you and complain to the Managers.We need to justify your work all the time to your Manager. Management is really good. Team culture hurts a lot.

    Professional environment with an opportunity to move up "Get Promoted" within the company.

    Pros

    equipment is good management is ok...Benifits are good

    Cons

    I am a local driver on the Home Depot account..being paid by the mile to run local is total B.S. if u think dispatch playing favorites on loads affects you're paycheck when u run O.T.R. think what it does when u have alot of 300-500 mile loads and alot of 30-50 mile loads..some drivers work 50 hrs a week and make $1100..and some drivers work 60 hrs and make $900 total B.S.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay by the hr
