    I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Over-time. Being ABLE to be on a Dedicated Account. JB Hunt is a respected name in the trucking business. Adequate Benefits. Good equipment and equipment maintenance program.

    Cons

    Entry and mid-level management lack on the job experience.

    Advice to Management

    It IS equally important for people in managerial roles to have a bachelors degree, as well as a minimum of 1 year dedicated account experience as a driver, as well as a minimum of one year OTR experience. You will have to pay them more, to find any that see the value and feel it's worth the investment of two years of time. But that's exactly the kind of person you need in this position.

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

    Pros

    Good starting salary. Opportunity to advance ESP if you are willing to relocate. Solid benefits, 401k match. Company is always looking to advance and improve operations.

    Cons

    Long hours. Annual pay raises and promotion raises are a joke. Bonus plan constantly changing seems to screw its employees.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of office politics.

    Pros

    Best company I've worked for so far! No force dispatch, sick days, paid vacation, benefits are decent, management is great.

    Cons

    Only thing I can say is you have to give 24 hr notice for call off or you get docked 2 points. After 12 points have accumulated you get fired.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
