    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    New Equipment
    Electronic logs(not many like em but I do)
    Never have to drive unsafe or out of hours

    Cons

    Pay is horrible, 11 yrs experience took a pay cut to .32 a mile
    "dispatchers" treat and talk to you like crap..being college grads, they know more about driving ya know
    Fuel bonus is very hard to get
    No performance bonus or raise in all the 3 years I've been with them

    Advice to Management

    Pay drivers better. If the CEO gets a yearly bonus, so should the drivers. Hire some Fleet Managers that have common sense and treat drivers a little better..and PLEASE get rid of Peoplenet. Its the worst software I've had the displeasure of using in my professional AND personal life.

    I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time

    Pros

    - Huge growth opportunity in ICS (both as a division and for employees)
    - Ability to find opportunities in field branches across the US (new branches opening every year)
    - Solid benefits
    - Young, vibrant, and fun culture
    - Upper management, led by CEO John Roberts, has a great vision of how to improve JB Hunt services, increase market share, and continually grow JB Hunt as one of the top-quality transportation providers and consultants in the industry

    Cons

    - Your success and earnings is largely based on what branch you are assigned to. If you are assigned to a branch with poor leadership/management, this will be evident in the teams attitude, numbers, and productivity, which will directly impact your personal success and earnings. The same productive employee may flourish or fail depending on which branch he/she happens to be assigned to
    - Reviews are often delayed by managers
    - Compensation is not properly tiered for employees with various productivity (top performer versus average performer)

    Advice to Management

    - Recognize your star performers and future leaders and compensate them properly. This is critical if ICS is to continue its long-term grown and success. Invest more in your people (not across the board necessarily but for those that are the most productive) and reap the benefits of higher returns. Slack on this investment and the future may hold stagnant growth due to the cost of rehires and lowering the bar for talent.
