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

    Pros

    i get a steady biweekly paycheck.

    Cons

    It can be a toxic work environment w/a office culture of immature adolescents, divided into groups. Not the team atmosphere i was told it was when i took the job. Managers "DEMANDING" respect when they themselves have none for their peers.

    Advice to Management

    When an employee voices their concerns about office issues, please listen and do something about it. Help make it a healthy work environment.

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

    Pros

    Driving experience, drivers are nice

    Cons

    Everything else. Dispatch does not care about drivers, hours are horrendous, pay is basically poverty. 70+ hours can still meet you a $500 paycheck. Poor equipment, easy but garbage routes. Waiting is a horrible problem

    Advice to Management

    Learn what a 16 hour rule is and how to use it, run legal trips (14 hours is with absolute perfect conditions).. PAY YOUR EMPLOYEES!! your pay rate is garbage. Actually give decent home time WITH family.. not get home at 12am and back at 10am ..change runs to 4 days a week or shorten them. Get communication under control.

    Pros

    Good coworkers while they last. Not too hard to go with the flow and clock in and out as long as you don’t get personally invested.

    Cons

    Management is a total boys club. More important who you know than what you know. Middle management up to senior vps are completely incompetent. Refuse to listen to advice from people more qualified than them and then make it your problem when their leadership fails. As a result they’ve had 100% turnover since last summer.

    Advice to Management

    Resign

    Pros

    If you last a year you can be an attorney with experience from their legal attacks

    Cons

    Harassment attacks from day 1. Get your paid days off ASAP or you will lose them.

    Advice to Management

    Value your drivers instead of attacking them. Stop stealing vacation days

    Thank you for you thoughts. I encourage you to talk you your Regional HR Client Manager about our new Paid Time Off policy so that we can clear up any confusion about vacation time.

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

    Pros

    This company keeps growing, so lots of work to be had.

    Cons

    Insulting compensation levels for those lower down the corporate ladder, particularly considering the demands and workload. Before I realized what a slave-driving sham this company is, I recommended a couple very qualified people I knew to apply for openings and they related very bad experiences getting treated like garbage by recruiting and HR and I felt bad for ever recommending the company to outside talent. It was really puzzling since the people had outstanding track-records in business, but the fact is that recruiting and HR people and processes become more of a disaster with each passing year and the level of incompetence is stunning.

    Advice to Management

    Better compensation for lower level positions. Revamp your recruiting and HR processes and stop plugging the absurdly incompetent into those positions.

    they cant get any worse, big bunch of crooks and liars

    Cons

    everything. if you are a veteran like myself, stay away from these clowns. if you value your cdl, stay away from these clowns. if your breathing, stay away from these clowns. This lying company should be put out of business. They ask you to run illegal, and they falsify official DOT documents. DOT needs to shut this company down

    Advice to Management

    fire everyone from the ceo down and start fresh. especially the crooked safety liars
