    I worked at J.B. Hunt part-time

    Pros

    No deadlines nothing. Employees will enjoy, chit-chat, have fun instead of working.

    Cons

    Worst management. Doesn't give importance to people who work and makes uneducated brutes as full-timers.

    Advice to Management

    First get to know about your employees who is really talented. Worst managers I have ever seen who doesn't even know their sub-ordinates.

    I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a job but that doesn't mean it is a job worth going to everyday. This may be the standard in the transportation industry.

    Cons

    Management is totally disconnected from the operation. They have little oversight by Upper management. Racism is tolerated all around and this appears to be a corporate wide practice because "transportation isn't politically correct."

    Managers continually yell, threaten, use offensive language, and try to intimidate. Thick skin is essential in the industry but no one should have to walk in to a hostile work environment on a regular basis.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to pay attention to what is going on in the individual regions. The Northeast is being run by good ol boys and they don't have the companies best interests in mind. They are solely focused on themselves and their expense accounts. Local account/general managers who don't follow the ethics standards the company publishes need to be demoted or terminated. No one should lead by force! Sometimes the best way to improve something is to wipe the slate clean and start over with new and fresh minds.

    Great people and great environment

    They're a bit unorganized, and almost no one has time to mentor or teach you anything if you're new.

    Find more time to teach new people

    I worked at J.B. Hunt full-time

    Pros

    Promote from within (supposedly), room for advancement with the company (they claim), challenging work environment

    Cons

    Having your workload double and triple with the promise that it's a chance to prove yourself for a promotion, but they won't actually give you the promotion or the raise. Some managers went to other locations to "cover" empty positions "temporarily", but instead were kept separate from their families for years at a time. J.B. Hunt rarely keeps its word.

    Advice to Management

    If you promise a promotion or a raise or anything else, follow through. Don't try to see how long you can get the person to do extra work for no extra money, until they're ready to quit. You're losing high quality employees to save a buck.
