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

    Pros

    Good solid company to grow and learn if you are wiling to put in the time and the effort. Make no mistake about any company you work for, long hours and dedication equals long hours away from family time and dedicated events. With that said, JB Hunt will give you a solid career and the tools to perform them with.

    Cons

    Late nights, away from home, or both are not uncommon at JB Hunt.

    Advice to Management

    None. JB Hunt is growing market. If you want to be in the transportation industry and have safe equipment with safe policies in place then JB Hunt should be one of your considerations.
    You may not enjoy trucks that drive 65 mph.
