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

    Pros

    I am a 24 year old female. I graduated from university two years ago with a degree in an unrelated field and started looking for management development programs. I chose JB Hunt over other companies because of my desire to be impactful in my position. DCS is fully of opportunity, and I truly believe that if you are unhappy in your position, it's because when applied you were truly looking for a "worker bee job," punching a clock, going by the book.

    This company is for the innovators & the problem solvers. I have been mentored by those who encourage creativity and root cause analysis when things get rough. My manager preaches six sigma principles and forward thinking, with an enemy of complacency. I truly believe in my ability and my team's ability to have a major impact on this companies growth.

    As an Account Manager, I'm running my own "business." I couldn't do that without the unconditional support and mentorship I've received at this company.

    Cons

    -While in the grand scheme of things this company has had an overwhelmingly positive impact on my growth in my career - there are good & bad drivers/managers/support staff. However, the rough days filled with a collision, injury and new customer demand have made me a stronger, efficient, creative manager.... it's not banking... it's trucking.
    - I hope to see a stronger women presence in field operations.
    - The company sometimes struggles to effectively implement systems, protocol and policy.

    Advice to Management

    I felt like my interview was very honest and forthright about the position I applied for. I would advise management in other areas to be more thorough in explaining the day to day requirements of the position. I believe many complaints show a lack of prior understanding when starting with the company.
