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

Pros

No day is ever the same... You will face constant challenges and learn a lot fast!! Lots of opportunity for growth in a organizaiton with a great product and service in all areas. National company with opportunities to move...

Cons

You will work 50-65 hours and possibly have a on-call phone on the weekends...It's borderline unacceptable to move outside the region and you will get no support to move outside of it...Poor benefits... No Vacations for a year and after a year, 5 days... 401k is basically a 3% (6% of half) match...Extremely stressful work environment (Definitely losing hair). Very poor training from the get-go... Sink or Swim mentality. Depending on the customer you work for, you are subject to their hours of operation... Retail (2/3 days off a year) some other industries (every holiday).

Advice to Management

My only advice is 5 vacation days after 6 months, 7 after a year... after 6 months you have learned so much and your constant interaction with aggressive under-educated individuals wears on your mentality significantly.

    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.
