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

    Pros

    Great experience working with a vast array of different industries, good health insurance and benefits. Overall good training models, military friendly.

    Cons

    Corp management is out of touch with region employees, great managers quit or are fired. Region OM's are less experienced than the people they manage. Good ol boy system is fully in place. Ideas are not welcomed, micro manage is the standard. Account managers are told to manage reports not their business. Not enough compensation for the hours of work you put in. Loves to hire military, however the leadership brought to the table by veterans is fostered.

    Advice to Management

    Promote based on experience, not whom you like better. Gain control of region VP's, and ensure they are leading by example. Don't be afraid to get rid of bad employees so that you retain the good ones.
