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

    Pros

    Decent salary and they have always provided the equipment needed to do my job

    Cons

    Lack of vision and cohesiveness. Recently management has started to make wholesale changes to the information technology department, ( some good, some bad). These changes are morphing us into a shop just like all the rest, causing us to lose out comparative advantage - knowledge the logistics business. Consequently, a large number of, IT professionals with 15 years of more of experience have abandoned the cause and moved on. This is not good for morale and that is why I have to rate jbhunt as low as I have.

    Advice to Management

    Please listen to and include your senior people in decision making. I know as an employee my job is to support your vision, but if you don't share it out ask for advice we can't help you or the company be successful!

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

    Pros

    Marketing,soliciting and logistics experience. It provides a great sense of how logistics works and is a nice entry level position into transportation to understand how the company works as a whole.

    Cons

    Hourly, strict environment and is a very stressful environment. Employees need to be financially compensated for the stress and time that goes into the company.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more structure in evaluations and more chance for advancement. There needs to be more cross training opportunities to have exposure to other various departments with in the company.

    Pros

    Processing..........1 dispatcher at night is good although she has seen rarely. From what I could tell during training. The dispatchers that work out of Denver are good.

    Cons

    Dispatchers, or as they call them "managers" are terrible. Equipment is terrible. The Peoplenet is a joke. Worse place i have worked they lie about sign-on bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Get better equipment. Get on dispatchers when they take and hour to do a simple task. Get rid of Peoplenet. Better trailers? Put dispatchers for local, local. And don't lie about sign-on bonuses

    Pros

    The job is flexible and keeps you busy with the workload given. The corporate campus has nice scenery and is convenientally located.

    Cons

    There never seems to be enough employees. It's hard to get promoted unless you know a lot of upper management. It seems to be a lot of good ol boy club rather than hiring the person best fit for the job.

    Pros

    great work hours, the hunt family is great, the CEO goes in the right direction, they have really nice buildings.

    Cons

    The lower management, for the most part think they know everything, and everyone that comes that is new, they seem to belittle you, and expect you to know everything from the beginning. the pay is terrible for what you have to go through, constantly they have the shift leaders send out mass emails to get to work harder and faster.
