    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    If you want to work, JB Hunt has the miles. As long you deliver your loads on time and have a good log book (no hos violations), you will get more opportunities to make more money. Communication with your driver manager is very important. After 4-5 days out, I was able to get home by Sat morning. I am satisfied with compensation.

    Cons

    Sometimes you will deliver to an area that has nothing coming out for a couple of days. You will have to sit and wait your regular DM comes back to work. The Weekend Crew doesnt no anything and are not much help.

    Advice to Management

    Contine to keep your promise to drivers. Evaluate each driver and offer them a chance to grow in the company. Allow each driver plenty of time to make his load appointments.
