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

    Pros

    Good culture at office, starting pay is good if you are young, learning good managent skills. If you like the feeling of working in a team, and being accountable then this job is for you.

    Cons

    Some employees slack off meaning you pick up their slack.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. As the company grows I'm sure more open positions will be readily available. That should mean more promotions

    I have been working at J.B. Hunt full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company Values, Innovative Executive Team, Infinite Potential

    Cons

    Pay, Work-Life Balance, Employee Management Training

    Advice to Management

    I am pleading with you to PLEASE pay attention to our employee retention rates. We are repeatedly losing top talent to lesser companies, because we do not offer competitive salaries and vacation packages. Please refrain from using "bonus" as an excuse for lower base salaries, because it is not ever guaranteed. It should not be included in salary negotiations unless the base is comparable to other companies in the area. I promise that you will increase customer retention, if you start with quality EMPLOYEE retention.

    The main reason that I have been with this company for so long is that I BELIEVE in JB Hunt's core values and innovative business solutions. I want nothing more than to help us become one of the top rated places to work, and I will do everything in my power to increase employee satisfaction and engagement.

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

    Pros

    I have been fortunate to see many opportunities on the IT side and there are many many more on the business side as well.

    Cons

    Seems to be under staffed for all the expectations. It's not a coast type of job. Work hard and you will do well.

    Advice to Management

    Improvements have been made the last few years. Pay bands have changed as well as vacation packages, but for IT to keep up with demands and ideas of the business there needs to be more developers.
