    Pros

    Very understanding when it comes to family emergencies and sick child absences

    Cons

    Limited growth opportunities, and too much micro management

    Let the employees be themselves and make their own brands, establishing their own. No one should be micro managed.

    I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Team environment. Individual branch P&L drives competition. Freedom for employees to make important decisions and great support from leadership to allow time for these decisions to deliver the intended results.

    Cons

    Unreasonable compensation for exceptional performance and results. Branches operate on individual P&L statements, but must follow corporate standard for how employees are compensated. Continual increase in corporate culture negatively affects larger, higher performing branches.

    Advice to Management

    Motivate employees by compensating and recognizing exceptional performance. Underperforming branches or employees should have an understanding that if they perform exceptionally, they will be compensated exceptionally better and recognized regularly. This will build a desire for employees and branches to deliver incredible results. Newer corporate policies are negatively impacting larger, higher performing branches.

    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

    Other drivers are nice and good to work with

    Cons

    Dispatch and management is in shambles

    Advice to Management

    Pay properly, switch up runs, stop doing zip code to zip code pay, get rid of every dispatcher and replace with actual people who've driven. Treat your driver's better..home time means more then just enough time to sleep and return

    The company is very stable and safety conscious. Some managers have the knowledge to operate profitably.

    Cons

    Pay raises are virtually non exsistent and corporate environment offers no room for advancement for minorities "you can work for the company, but you can't manage the company" attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more opportunities for employees looking to advance.

    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
