    No consideration for your personal life

    I worked at J.B. Hunt

    Pros

    Good drivers to work with

    Cons

    Management didn't care about your home life & if you had plans with your family. It was take your 10 hr break & get back in the truck. Collage management with no trucking experience except what JB Hunt taught then.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better training for your DCS management including a least 1-2 weeks in the trucks with the drivers learning the account, routes, stops,
    & assisting the drivers with unloading & loading.

    Pros

    Co-workers are great. they are very helpful.

    Cons

    Management lacks any kind of respect to its employees. My way or highway attitude. Management shows preference to white people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen and be respectful to employees.

    Inexperienced drivers may want to avoid...

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

    Pros

    Pay is right there, Decent benefits, Uniforms, Lots of safety training, Needless to say J.B. is all over the place, so, ability to transfer/ relocate

    Cons

    Equip. is not always well maintained (good luck if your truck goes to the Joppa Md. garage) As with many large company's, very often one hand doesn't know what the other is doing. To corporate, you are just a number. PERIOD! Easily replaced. All incidents are recorded, no matter how small, which can be grounds for dismissal (with mild accumulations) or, make you an unfavorable prospect to another Co. Unless you pretty well know your way around in this biz. and a particular position would be VERY convenient for you, i would strongly think twice about working for them! As one of the instructors said during orientation, "gentlemen, this is a hard job to get & an easy job to lose" Also, if you are serious about working for them, talk to at least 3-4 drivers from the terminal where you would be driving out of, & as always, google J.B. Hunt driver reviews...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Likely, this box doesn't have enough space.

    Pros

    Definitely a lot of opportunities for growth within the company especially in operations in transportation logistics and other departments within the company.

    Cons

    Time-off policies differ with every department, since its a 24hour operation, time off is very strict. Work life balance is very poor. 50 hour work week mandatory

    Pros

    Good compensation. Work in groups. You have peak hours and some down time.

    Cons

    Training was short only observing. The person who trained was always judging others mistakes. It was an open where everyone works in cubicle. Trainer was pointing out how stupid some people were. She will discuss errors by others with co-workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's very unprofessional to talk about previous employers, so it's hearing co-workers drawing your name so openly.

    Pros

    Lots of responsibility early on. Will be "drinking from a fire hose". Gives you a chance to really develop and learn foundational elements about the industry. Good bonus when the company is doing well.

    Cons

    There really isn't much of a training program and what the training that is available is very disorganized. Lots of work and not many opportunities to move up.
