    I worked at J.B. Hunt full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had a great dispatcher, Taylor Wilson, equipment was all fairly new and reliable, they are good about getting you home when requested

    Cons

    Home time schedule, 3 weeks out 3 days home, was just too little with young children at home. Sometimes you'd deliver in the middle of nowhere, and have to wait up to a day for follow up loads.

    Advice to Management

    making a more flexible home time option for those with families, planners need to be smarter with routing

    Pros

    Learning the industry and working with others to complete the task. To help drivers make as much money as possible to help there families as well as watch some drivers buy they’re own truck.

    Cons

    Pay, hours, no bonuses. I was promised that I would get a bonus ever quarter and have not seen one yet. The appreciation of the managers is very low.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your managers as they’re just as important as the drivers.

    I worked at J.B. Hunt full-time

    Pros

    -Hunt hires within. Depending on position/location, you have the ability to go up quickly. Also, can move up at a young age.
    -Ability to move around the U.S. Hunt offers a great relocation package.
    -You don't need experience to get on with the company.
    -Pretty good pay and benefits (Compared to the industry).
    -Good job security. It is pretty hard to get fired from Hunt.

    Cons

    -Tough industry to work in.
    -Minimal work/life balance.
    -Low margin company that is always trying to save money. Depending on position, workload can be pretty heavy. Might be on call 24/7.
    -Have to work odd shifts (i.e. Nights/Weekends) to be promoted.
    -Day to day work can be mundane and most likely will burn you out.

    Advice to Management

    Your job satisfaction and upward mobility all depends on your boss. Middle management is pretty hit or miss at Hunt. Continue to develop and strengthen middle level management.

    I worked at J.B. Hunt full-time

    Pros

    This was my first position after graduating from college. I was happy to have the opportunity to begin using my skill set in Logistics and Strategic Planning. I worked on several different accounts in my 2 1/2 years with the company.

    Cons

    JB Hunt does not promote based on seniority or capability. It is hard to understand why people get moved to the next level. I applied for many jobs that were next level, and never heard a response. This is why I left the company.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within, recognize hard working people.

    Pros

    Growing company not content with its successful history but reinventing itself as a tech leader.

    Cons

    Large corporate environment, lots of role silos, hard to affect cultural change.

    Advice to Management

    Reorganize from silos of roles, project teams, and heavy processes into small, agile teams that value delivery of working product over all else.

    Pros

    The orientation coordinators in Louisville Kentucky are awesome guys

    Cons

    As a LEASE operator you can not pick your own loads and their freight is on the low end compared to Schneider

    Advice to Management

    Let LEASE purchase be able to pick their own loads from the load board and even deal with the broker also learn how Schneider National run their IC program and you will be able to compete in XL further than them

    Pros

    J.B. Hunt knows how to take care of their people.

    Cons

    Not many. One con in my experience has been having to put my time into working 3rd shift overnights. In order to advance you have to be willing to relocate or positions have to open up
