    Pros

    JBHT has managed to maintain the family culture created by Mr. & Mrs. Hunt. Its easy to be proud to work with such civic minded leaders.
    There are many opportunities for growth and creativity with in the company.
    Having the the perks of fitness opportunities on site, such as flag football, volleyball, 1.3 mile walking trail, indoor fitness center are all great. Add to that, team cook outs and other team building opportunities on and offsite, you can see the investment the JBHT leadership makes in their people is real.

    Cons

    That can be a long walk in from the parking lot during the winter weather.

    Pros

    Growing company with a lot of potential. If you're willing to relocate and are a good employee, you'll move up the promotion ladder quickly. Management is flexible with work schedules.

    Cons

    Driver shortage, long days, and the bonus program is capped.

    Advice to Management

    Overall management is good and has a lot of experience behind them. I wish they'd trim down on some of the metrics, but I understand that metrics are what give directors etc... a snapshot of each account. Some metrics are legit, others seem to be a waste of time.
