    I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people are good to work with. The hours are flexible. If you like wearing a lot of hats this is a great place. You will do most of the analysis on a project then design and construction.

    Cons

    Hard work isn't recognized. You have to fight to get a good salary and promoted. Also the whole IT department is not funded enough. People are assigned unrealistic timelines. It's almost like IT management is afraid to be honest with the business about resources and time.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic with goals forced on people. If you assign a 1 year task that realistically requires 10 people, then don't reprimand the 5 people you assigned to it when they are behind. Perhaps increase the IT budget or lengthen the timelines.

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

    Pros

    Good people, solid advancement opportunites

    Cons

    Pay is a good 30-40% lower than equivalent jobs in other industries. Benefits are costly. 401k match is lacking in comparison to other local employers.

    I worked at J.B. Hunt as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Fortune 500 experience
    - Decent benefits
    - Vertical and horizontal mobility
    - Some great managers
    - Modernizing under new leadership

    Cons

    - Some awful managers
    - Legacy systems and bad practices
    - Some outdated business practices
    - Company is too large, it's easy for bad employees to skate by

    Advice to Management

    Continue to modernize, especially in terms of management. Managers do not need to micro-manage, e.g. it's okay for employees to have non-work conversations, you shouldn't have to approve every expenditure, you should hire people you trust.

    none? Maybe the catering in the lunch room? The offices were pretty, so I guess that's nice too?

    Cons

    Sexism - men from outside the company hired rather then promote women from their teams.
    No paid holidays
    Uneven bonus pay

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

    Pros

    I work with two other people on this shift, so Seclusion. We get slightly better pay than people that work on days. Its pretty slow paced for the most part.

    Cons

    If you're a people person, this is not the position for you, the seclusion. The pay isn't much better than a day position. It's slow paced, I'm usually bored half the night if not longer. My personal life/social life is dead because normal people are sleeping when I get off work

    Advice to Management

    You guys are doing great! I don't have any complaints. Feel free to give me a pay increase if you'd like!

    Pros

    Stable
    Growth oriented
    Positive culture
    Care about their people
    The sky is the limit for this company, they are happy to relocate the right people across divisions and around the country too.

    Cons

    Don't get here and expect to be a VP in two years. There is a lot of equity in time spent and if you're afraid to work your way through the ranks the I'd think twice about joining the family here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, you inspire your people everyday.
