    Advice to Management

    I am pleading with you to PLEASE pay attention to our employee retention rates. We are repeatedly losing top talent to lesser companies, because we do not offer competitive salaries and vacation packages. Please refrain from using "bonus" as an excuse for lower base salaries, because it is not ever guaranteed. It should not be included in salary negotiations unless the base is comparable to other companies in the area. I promise that you will increase customer retention, if you start with quality EMPLOYEE retention. The main reason that I have been with this company for so long is that I BELIEVE in JB Hunt's core values and innovative business solutions. I want nothing more than to help us become one of the top rated places to work, and I will do everything in my power to increase employee satisfaction and engagement.

    Pros

    Great place to work to gain experience.

    Cons

    Pay is under the industry standard. Top talent frequently leaves to pursue other opportunities because J.B. Hunt is not willing to pay adequately to retain top talent.

    Pros

    No Pros to share. The training, development, facilities, and people associated with this company are terrible.

    Cons

    Awful management. Poor work/life balance. No interest in training its people Low salary. Unbelievable turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Be happy that you operate in an oligopoly. If there were true competition within this industry you all would not be able to compete.
