    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Salary seems nice at first glance.

    Cons

    Just don't do it. The salary seems good for an entry level position but I promise you it won't be worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more talent. There is simply too much per fleet manager to manage on a daily basis.

    I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time

    Pros

    Fast early career advancement, lots of early responsibility, Executive leadership are good leaders and genuinely good people,

    Cons

    Poor training across the company, easy to get stuck in middle because there is no clear career paths, very siloed divisions make it hard to transfer across divisions, middle level jobs are often filled before they are advertised within the company

    Advice to Management

    Better training is needed, clearer career progression planning, more transparent hiring and promotions would keep more talent from leaving. Also break up the siloing of the divisions, there is value in getting new blood from one division to another.

    Had a couple of bad managers that had been with the company for quite a while. They were given far too much trust by upper management.
